One Big Holiday 2015January 31 - February 4, 2015Hard Rock Hotel Riviera MayaPuerto Aventuras, Mexico
After an incredible inaugural year, My Morning Jacket returned to Mexico in 2015 for round two of One Big Holiday! This time they brought even more special guests including Band Of Horses, Dr. Dog, The War on Drugs, Dawes, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Sylvan Esso, and Biz Markie. We were treated to three blistering My Morning Jacket shows which featured memorable sit-ins, exciting song debuts, and amazing cover song selections.
The sun was shining as guests arrived at the resort with smiles, and we knew we were in for something special! The War on Drugs kicked off the music in the Concert Courtyard in fine fashion. My Morning Jacket opened up with incredible energy and performed an incredible 24 song set including the live debut of “Big Decisions”. The party kept going with late night tunes from Sylvan Esso under the Mexican moonlight. Powerhouses Preservation Hall Jazz Band also brought their old school New Orleans sound to the tropics. The music was undeniable and our dancing feet weren’t fighting it!
Things got exciting by the pool as Bo Koster and Tom Blankenship of My Morning Jacket joined fans at the “Derby Party”, a collection of quirky games and prize giveaways. The activities just got better as the days went on! Chef Edward Lee curated a delicious BBQ and pig roast right on the beach for our One Big Football Party. We came together to watch the game of the year on big screen projectors as the sun set. Talk about a pre-show party! The sunshine, the music, the people, and the vibes were right in line and created even stronger bonds among our One Big Family.
