The excursion takes place Feb. 27-March 3, 2017 at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. This year marks Widespread Panic’s 30th anniversary and the group announced they will be taking a break from their regularly heavy tour schedule next year and wanted to give fans a chance to experience some live performances beforehand.

The retreat includes “artist-hosted activities, workshops, poolside games, a poker tournament, daily yoga, and theme nights.” Positive Legacy will be partnering again with “Panic en la Playa.” The charitable organization encourages both fans and artists to “participate in a day service and cultural connection in the local community as a way of giving back.” An auction and donation drive will also be featured.

Presented by Cloud 9 Adventures, presales for returning guests begin July 11 at 12 p.m. General onsales begin July 13 at 12 p.m. All times EDT. Visit panicenlaplaya.com for more information.
