Calling all friends of the devil – Dead & Company has unveiled details for its third annual Caribbean concert vacation, “Playing In The Sand,” scheduled Jan. 16-19. This time around the event will be hosted at Moon Palace in Cancun, Mexico. 

The all-inclusive getaway, featuring three nights of performances from the band, is put on in partnership with CID Presents. 
As the name of the event implies, Dead & Company will play on the white, sandy beach, just feet away from the Caribbean Sea. 
Attendees will be treated to all-inclusive food and drink, 24-hour concierge service and shuttle service to and from the Cancun International Airport. The event boasts on-site activities including yoga, tequila tasting, bowling, and surfing, along with off-site adventures exploring the beauty and history of the area including Isla Mujeres, Chichen Itza, and Rio Secreto. 
Fans who have attended either of the previous edition of Playing In The Sand can take advantage of an exclusive 72-hour presale beginning July 12 at 1 p.m. ET. Tickets go on sale to the general public July 15 at 1 p.m. E. Payment plans are available.
