2014

December 16-20, 2014
Now Sapphire Resort • Puerto Morelos, Mexico

The inaugural Closer to the Sun was an unforgettable experience! Slightly Stoopid's all-inclusive beach party in Mexico featured epic musical collaborations and a family-like vibe that solidified it as a truly special event. Slightly Stoopid were joined by Citizen Cope, Dirty Heads, G. Love & Special Sauce, Steel Pulse, Ethan Tucker with Special Guests Don Carlos, Karl Denson, and Ian Neville. 

The resort was brimming with energy from the minute G. Love & Special Sauce took the stage on the first night to Steel Pulse's closing set. In between, we were treated to amazing music like 3 shows from Slightly Stoopid (including a rare acoustic set on the beach at sunset!), and highlights like G. Love joining Stoopid and Dirty Heads playing though the rain.

Event extras brought fans and artists together with the Guacamole Making Contest judged by members of Dirty Heads and Citizen Cope, G. Love's Special Hot Sauce Workshop, a basketball tournament, and other fun activities. The beautiful Mayan Riviera offered us the chance to explore on snorkeling trips, Mayan ruin tours, zip-lining, and other exciting excursions.
