December 16-20, 2014Now 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.
