Phish Riviera Maya - Jan. 13-15, 2017
« on: April 12, 2016, 03:05:09 PM »

Phish are going back to Mexico! The return of Phish: Riviera Maya, a 4-night all-inclusive concert vacation, will take place on January 13-15, 2017. The band will perform three nights on the beach in one of the world’s most beautiful spots – Mexico’s Caribbean coastline. The concerts will take place at Barceló Maya Beach, which sits on a mile-long stretch of white sandy beach.

Fans can stay at the host resort or at one of the other six selected hotel-resorts (including three additional properties for this year). For those not staying at the Barceló Maya Beach, shuttle service will be provided. A variety of off-site adventures will also be available.

Packages for Phish: Riviera Maya will go on sale April 19 at 1PM ET. For complete details, including payment plans, visit http://www.phishrivieramaya.com.

Sweet.

Interesting timing to announce this before Fall Tour.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

First (and one of the few legitimate) gripes about this year was how short a lead time folks had.
This si a bit more on par with other events of this nature, I think.

Happy to see this news; a little caught off guard by how quickly it came.

They've added some more resorts but I wonder if they plan on making the show capacity much larger.

As hard as tickets were the first time, my fear is they'll be even tougher this go-around since people have heard how awesome it was.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

I've heard rumors of it being more in the 10k neighborhood this time.

I've heard they are accommodating more people this time around, different stage location to fit everyone.
that's great. people are stupid.

My records are my media for music. They are to be played. Loud and as often as possible.

Wow, this announcement came out of nowhere!

ETA: Seems pricier than this year already, no?

So this should be an interesting conversation tonight with the wifey. We said we would go the next time but wasn't expecting an announcement in April. I've got Vegas in November and possibly in October if the boys are there for Halloween. Going to Florida for Christmas. Planning another vacation for the end of May for our wedding anniversary. Now gotta squeeze in the funds for this too. I really hope this is in the cards for me.

So... are people thinking this will become a regular thing?

How often do these other bands like Panic do this? Is it every year?

I guess, from the bands standpoint... There's no reason not to do it once a year? I'm sure they profit as much as any other random shows and hey, free vacation for the family in Mexico.
