Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya
Puerto Aventuras, Mexico
Panic en la Playa is well known for its amazing community of fans, artists, and staff, all ready to have the Best Day Ever and Ocho did not disappoint. Old friends and newcomers were immediately welcomed into the Playa family when they arrived at the resort.
From the moment Widespread Panic kicked off our weekend with Coconuts, the energy was electric. Each of their nightly two set shows were absolutely incredible, featuring amazing setlists, special sit ins, and the band was on fire. Supporting acts Bloodkin and Kalu and the Electric Joint began our nights in paradise with sunset shows at the Heaven Beach stage and North Mississippi Allstars and veteran artists the Playa Allstars kept us grooving late night.
Our afternoons were spent relaxing in the sun or having some fun with a full schedule of activities with our amazing artists to keep us entertained. Highlights included poolside karaoke, WSMFP Bingo to benefit Positive Legacy, and the Match Game feat. JoJo Herman, Cyril Neville, Eric Krasno, Mark Mullins, Cheme Gastelum, and Terence Higgins.
Thank you to the Good People of Ocho who joined us for another memorable Vacation en la Playa!
