Mayan Holidaze :: Tulum :: 12.2012

It is with great pleasure that we announce that STS9 will be playing Mayan Holidaze in Tulum, Mexico, December 17th – 21st, 2012.

For 2012, Mayan Holidaze holds special significance – with a move to Tulum coinciding with the height of a very mystic time in the Mayan Calendar.  Guests can expect another all-inclusive musical adventure on the beautiful shores of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera but with a distinct twist – this time to include the all-inclusive luxury of staying on site at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa, or staying offsite and purchasing from a limited number of 4-Day Passes providing all-inclusive access to the event while making one’s own accommodations, allowing people to experience the “off-the-beaten-path” paradise of the Hotel Zone in Tulum.

Mayan Holidaze features host bands STS9, The Disco Biscuits & Umphrey’s McGee, each performing 2 full shows plus a special set over the four nights, along with additional support acts/special guests. In honor of this special time, STS9 will be performing the festival closing slot at midnight on December 21st.

The beautiful locale and luxurious accommodations at the Dreams Tulum complete the Mayan Holidaze vacation.  Located on the pristine beaches of Tulum, approximately 75 minutes south of Cancun in the Mayan Riviera – and 5 minutes from the ancient ruins- Dreams Tulum is a first-class, all-inclusive resort that boasts spacious suites, an incredible on-site spa, gourmet restaurants, beachfront palapas, and of course, stunning ocean views.  Mayan Holidaze offers music fans a genuine luxury vacation featuring days relaxing on the beach with friends and nights listening to their favorite bands perform in paradise.

::UPDATE:: Mayan Holidaze is sold out but you can join the Waiting List RIGHT HERE.

Mayan Holidaze is presented by Cloud 9 Adventures.

    Amazing! Tulum represents the 5th chakra for the Mayan. Tulum is a spiritual center of sound (vibrations), harmonies of life. Physically I wont be there, but we are always together…

    Dreams Tulum is great. I was actually there the last week of February for family vacation. Great resort. Wish I could go!

    oh man screw that token system, I’ve wanted to go to holidaze for awhile but it always sells out during presale. Seriously wondering if the system was created so no one new can go?!?

    If i can get off site accommodations i will, wouldn’t miss the end of era celebration (and my birthday!!) for anything but it’d be nice to at least part of the battle for the rooms.

    never mind, i wont be going b/c cloudnine server can’t handle the traffic experienced today.

    Had my ticket, had selected my amenities but when I tried to pay for them the site took so long to load it told me the session expired. Nothing like getting your hopes up for nothing two years in a row.

    Well, so much for my 21st tribe show -> In mexico -> on 12/21/12 -> for the end of an era celebration -> on my birthday.

    Enjoy everyone that is able to go, i hope i don’t sound bitter i’m just really jealous and praying to the mayan gods that my name is first on the waiting list.
