Music at Panic En La Playa

Panic en la Playa Nueve returns to Hard Rock Riviera Maya for another round of magic with an amazing community of musicians. Watch Widespread Panic perform overlooking the Caribbean four nights in a row! Our adventure will feature shows in the esteemed Concert Courtyard with unlimited food and drinks, only steps away. Afternoon activities and sunset shows will take place at the intimate Heaven Beach stage, where you can watch shows with your toes in the sand or while floating in the water. Head over to Stairway to Heaven and close out the night with a killer lineup of late night shows. The Playa Allstars return with an amazing group of musicians performing two late night shows, including one set of music by the Grateful Dead.

With fun programming ranging from artist-hosted contests, poolside games, and cooking challenges – there’s something for everyone.

Home Away From Home

Set on a protected inlet off the Caribbean Sea, Hard Rock Riviera Maya is the perfect place to say hola to sun and sand & adios to winter weather. This free flowing resort is like 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 Nueve will take over both. Check out everything our winter vacation destination has to offer!
