After taking 2015 off, My Morning Jacket have announced the return of their One Big Holiday destination concert experience. The world’s biggest MMJ fans will once again take over Mexico’s Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya for four nights of music, activities, and more on February 4th-8th, 2017.
In addition to three full sets from My Morning Jacket, the rockation will include performances from Gary Clark Jr., The Head and the Heart, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Deer Tick, and Lucius. What’s more, the Jacket’s own guitarist Carl Broemel will play a special sunset set, and tUnE-yArDs’ Merrill Garbus will spin a late-night DJ set. Download codes for all the MMJ headlining performances will be given to guests as they depart on the final day.
One Big Holiday will also feature workshops, poolside games, theme nights, artist-hosted activities, cooking demos, and more. There will be a special viewing party for the Super Bowl, including a spread by chefs Bobby Benjamin and Chad Welch of Butchertown Grocery. All this in addition to the all-inclusive food and drinks the Hard Rock Hotel has to offer, plus access to the spa, golf, off-site excursions, and all the beauty of a Mexican resort.
Tickets go on sale beginning June 8th at noon EST, with returning guests getting special pre-sale access a day earlier. Members of the band’s Roll Call fanclub can also apply for the pre-sale by completing a form on MMJ’s website between now and May 31st at 5:00 PM EST.
