Panic en la Playa Cinco
February 2 - 6, 2016
Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya
Puerto Aventuras, Mexico
Panic en la Playa hit its milestone fifth year in style as we moved from our former home in Punta Cana to the beautiful Riviera Maya! A sold out crowd enjoyed four nights of Widespread Panic overlooking the Caribbean Sea within the intimate confines of the resort's Concert Courtyard.
Cinco featured many musical highlights from four scorching Widespread Panic shows which featured both rare cuts and beloved staples. Late night shows from The New Mastersounds and the Playa Allstars and sunset shows at the Hacienda Playa from Patterson Hood, Todd Snider, and Jerry Joseph topped off our adventure.
Panic en la Playa Cinco also featured lots of extra happenings around the resort throughout the four days. Dave Schools was out and about, mingling with fans at the Mexican Cooking Class and JoJo hosted his annual Sauce Contest. Guests gave back to Positive Legacy through a setlist pool challenge, brought their poker faces to the Texas Hold ‘em tournament, and harnessed their guacamole making skills in a contest judged by Jerry Joseph. Never a dull moment down en la Playa!
