The Ultimate Widespread Panic Vacation

Music at Panic En La Playa

Panic en la Playa Nueve returned to Hard Rock Riviera Maya in January 2020 for another round of magic with an amazing community of musicians & fans. Our adventure featured four nights of Widespread Panic shows in the esteemed Concert Courtyard with unlimited food and drinks just steps away. Afternoon activities and sunset shows took place at the intimate Heaven Beach stage, where we listened along with our toes in the sand. We headed over to Stairway to Heaven and closed out the nights with killer late night shows.

Between waking up in paradise and incredible shows every night came a full schedule of curated activities designed to bring fans and artists together. Days started with yoga overlooking the ocean and continued with fun programming ranging from artist-hosted workshops to poolside games.

Theme Nights

One of the best parts about Panic en la Playa is getting dressed up for our theme nights. Where else can you tap into your wild side and go all out out with a glittery cape or full body suit?!  Whether planning a group costume or going at it on your own, we love seeing you just how creative you can be!


Some grabbed a snorkeling mask and went out on a Catamaran for the day and others swung through the lush jungle into a local cenote. We soaked in the culturally rich Riviera Maya as we spent four days & nights in beautiful Puerto Aventuras, Mexico close to attractions in Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

Home Away From Home

Set on a protected inlet off the Caribbean Sea, Hard Rock Riviera Maya was the perfect place for another incredible Panic en la Playa. This free flowing resort is two resorts in one – split down the middle by the Main Stage in our Concert Courtyard. Each side of the resort has its own vibe but Panic en la Playa offers a full resort takeover, turning it into our own personal Panic playground.
