Positive Legacy, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arm of Cloud 9 Adventures, is committed to integrating live music and service by taking actions that positively impact the communities we visit. Positive Legacy’s mission inspires music fans and artists to collectively take action and build a better world. The goal is to develop service activities that people can participate in to bring a deeper sense of purpose to their travel experiences and the music surrounding it.

Day of Service

Positive Legacy would like to thank all the Panic en la Playa fans, musicians and artists for their support! Guests ventured outside the resort for our Day of Service and Community Action at Xcacel, a local turtle sanctuary and beach. Joining with our partners, Flora, Fauna y Cultura, we were able to pick up TONS of trash and paint signs encouraging beach visitors to keep it clean! The grant we gave Xcacel will support facility improvements to protect the ecosystem around the park.

After completing our morning projects, we celebrated with music and an authentic Mexican lunch then had the opportunity to go swimming in the Caribbean.

Charity Auctions

A huge thank you to everyone who showed up in the Hacienda Lobby and participated in the bidding at our Charity Auctions! With your support we raised $50,000 which will support Positive Legacy’s continued environmental & humanitarian projects in Mexico.  We also raised $5,500 for Widespread Panic’s Tunes for Tots!

Collectively over the 9 years at Panic en la Playa events, Positive Legacy has raised over $400,000 from the support of the fans, musicians and artistians!

We’d like to thank Terrance Higgins for his uplifting DJ Set during the silent auction which set the perfect ambiance while participants bid on photos, posters and unique PELP art pieces.

A special thanks to Josh Timmermans and Dave Vann for the amazing photography they donated and to Widespread Panic for their generous donations
