Breathless Resort & Spa + Now Onyx
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
December 1-5, 2016
Returning to the tropical beaches of Punta Cana with the Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, and STS9, our 10th anniversary was the grandest Holidaze yet! Not only did we take over Breathless Resort & Spa, but also added it's brand new next door neighbor, Now Onyx. Our stacked lineup also featured sets from Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Lotus, Lettuce, Shpongle (Simon Posford DJ Set), The Floozies, Michal Menert, Goldroom, Manic Focus, and a Deitch DJ set!
Holidaze is always filled with unforgettable moments, and this year was no different. Daily shows started poolside with up-tempo DJ sets from Goldroom, Michal Menert and Manic Focus, who also took over late night sets with some grimy tunes at the Wink Bar. Hosts STS9, the Disco Biscuits, and Umphrey’s McGee each had the chance to set the mood for the night with 1 sunset show and 2 main stage performances. The last night was a sweet treat as Joe Russo's Almost Dead ripped Shakedown Street for the final song of Dominican Holidaze 2016. It was just the right vibe to send us home with memories we’ll cherish forever.
Daily activities at Holidaze were back and better than ever! From beachside morning Yoga and Autograph Signings to water sports and games with your favorite artists, there was no shortage of fun at Dominican Holidaze 2016! Some highlights were the grilled cheese contest, documentary screenings, and pool basketball with The Floozies. It was another Holidaze for the books! Thank you to everyone who was a part of the magic.
