After a quiet winter in 2020, the Cloud 9 Adventures event season returns with the official announcement of destination music vacation Strings & Sol. The bluegrass-centric concert experience takes fans to the tropics for an all-inclusive vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The event returns to beloved all-inclusive resorts Now Sapphire and Dreams Riviera Cancun from December 9-13, 2021.
The concert venues – main stage on the beach, poolside gazebo, and open-air palapa – are celebrated for their uniqueness, intimacy, and convenience to guest suites and all-inclusive amenities. The event features three shows from both Greensky Bluegrass and Yonder Mountain String Band with two shows each from Trampled by Turtles, Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon, and The Lil Smokies. Additionally, Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band and Lindsay Lou are each performing one show.
The Strings & Sol experience extends beyond the stage with a variety of artist interactions that create the ultimate experience for bluegrass fans and avid vacationers alike. The intimate event has cultivated a close-knit community of returning guests, first time attendees, artists, and staff who come together to participate in instrument workshops, beachside jam sessions, and theme nights. In addition to the happenings on property, guests can book off-site excursions to explore the beauty and culture of the surrounding Mayan Riviera region extending from Cancun to Tulum.
A limited number of suites are offered just down the beach from the main stage at Dreams Resort & Spa. Dreams Resort is well appointed, all-inclusive and located less than 0.5 mile from Now Sapphire. If staying at Dreams Resort & Spa, guests can easily connect to Now Sapphire throughout the day and night by a quick beach walk or complimentary door-to-door shuttle service. Enjoy the best of both worlds with all the action of Now Sapphire at your fingertips and a second resort full of amenities, additional dining options, and room service to add a more relaxing element to your vacation.
Strings & Sol is again partnering with charitable organization Positive Legacy, encouraging artists and fans to participate in a day of service in the community of Puerto Morelos as a way of giving back. Positive Legacy’s ongoing projects in the region bring hands-on opportunities for guests to get involved. Details for this year’s artist-hosted activities, theme nights, and community outreach will be released this summer.
