Now Sapphire Resort • Puerto Morelos, Mexico
Our second year in Mexico was nothing short of pure beach bliss! Hosts Slightly Stoopid were joined by friends SOJA, IRATION, Pepper, Ozomatli and Special Guests G. Love, Don Carlos, Karl Denson, Ian Neville, Organically Good Trio, and Lance Herbstrong.
The 4 nights of music were made even better by near-perfect weather and some the coolest fans on the planet. So much more than just an ordinary vacation, Closer to the Sun featured tons of activities with artists such as Kyle MacDonald’s Margarita Making Contest, a Mexican Cooking Class w/ Ozomatli, volleyball w/ SOJA, and more. The experience was made even better with excursions, afternoon poolside sets, and Positive Legacy programs including the live and silent auction (which raised over $20,000 for charity)!
And of course, the music that brought us to Mexico in the first place tied the whole experience together! The four nights saw multiple collaborations including Don Carlos with Slightly Stoopid, Miles Doughty hopping on stage with Pepper, Lance Herbstrong jamming with Ozomatli, and many other special moments. The acoustic set from Stoopid was a highlight, allowing us the chance to hear some of our favorite songs in a unique setting and arrangement.
