Closer to the Sun 2018
November 30 - December 4, 2018
Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya • Puerto Aventuras, Mexico
We pulled out all the stops for our fifth adventure with Slightly Stoopid! With our move to a new host resort, we expanded the lineup to include Stick Figure, Pepper, Michael Franti & Spearhead, UB40 feat. Ali Campbell, Astro & Mickey, Thievery Corporation, Alborosie, G. Love & Special Sauce, The Expendables, HIRIE, and The Movement, along with special guests Chali 2na, Don Carlos, Karl Denson and King Yellowman.
Slightly Stoopid amazed us with 3 incredible shows, including a very special Live & Direct Acoustic Roots set on the beach, and two guest filled shows in the main stage. We saw some killer collaborations during nearly every set at our annual winter getaway including HIRIE and Michael Franti taking the show from the stage to the water at our beachside stage.
Our daytime activities took over the afternoons and brought fun to every corner of the Hard Rock. Featuring staples like the annual Closer to the Rim basketball tournament, BINGO, & Autograph Signings to hilarious new games like the Poolside Casino and Grilled Cheese Off.
Everything came together perfectly for another epic concert vacation in paradise! Four nights of reggae on the beach, plus intimate late nights and activities... It doesn't get any better than that!
