One Big Holiday 2017February 4 - 8, 2017Hard Rock Hotel Riviera MayaPuerto Aventuras, Mexico
After taking one year off, One Big Holiday returned to Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in 2017 with an undeniable energy filling the warm Caribbean air. My Morning Jacket was joined by a stellar lineup including Gary Clark Jr., The Head & The Heart, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Deer Tick, Lucius, Carl Broemel, and Tune-Yards (DJ Set).
The music and atmosphere at One Big Holiday were electric! My Morning Jacket’s first show began with their live debut of “This Land is Your Land” with the help of members of legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Lucius and ended with an 8 song encore capped off by a special guest filled cover of Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone”. With moments like the stripped down, sunset show from Deer Tick at the Lagoon and Guitar guru Gary Clark Jr. setting the courtyard ablaze with his rocking riffs and hard rock does the blues sound, we knew we were exactly where we needed to be for those four days - music heaven.
Not only did we enjoy four amazing nights of music in paradise, we were also treated to afternoons of sunshine and relaxation plus specially curated activities! Louisville’s own Butchertown Grocery catered an amazing spread for the Lagoon side Super Bowl fiesta. Members of My Morning Jacket had us feeling lucky as Bo and Carl tested our poker faces in a Texas Hold Em’ Tournament and Tom Blakenship hosted a Griswold’s themed poolside casino. With a collection of new and old friends, there was never a dull moment to be had at this One Big Holiday!
