Check out one of the nine restaurants at the Hard Rock for dinner, then make your way to the Concert Courtyard, boasting amazing acoustics and plenty of space to lounge, rail ride, and grab a drink. Feel the ocean breeze, as you get down to your favorite bands playing on the shore of the Caribbean Sea.

Combining the music you love, all-inclusive accommodations, and plenty of extras, Closer to the Sun is the full package!
As if four nights of music in paradise isn't enough, get ready for a ton of activities to keep your afternoons filled with fun and excitement. From judging your creativity to testing your poker face, there is a little something for everyone. Stay tuned to find out what's happening this year and be sure to take advantage of all the ways to get some face time with your favorite musicians.
From world-renowned snorkeling to tours of the ancient ruins of Tulum, the Mayan Riviera is a region rich with culture and adventure.
