Holidaze Announces 2018 Lineup & Location

first_imgHolidaze announced their 2018 lineup and location, and we’re stoked as ever for the winter festival. Year after year, the Holidaze tradition blows us away with their stacked lineups and ongoing sense of community that’s uniquely crafted at the intimate destination get-away. Scheduled for December 12th through 16th, the four-night event is returning to Puerto Morelos, Mexico to the Now Sapphire Resort and Dreams Resort & Spa—where Cloud 9’s Strings & Sol event has also taken place in years past—and will be tapping some of our favorite acts to join them including fan-favorite veterans of the festival and newer faces to keep things fresh.Topping the newly dropped lineup are host band STS9, Umphrey’s McGee, and The Disco Biscuits, who are each slated to perform three full-set shows, taking place right on the beach under some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Holidaze veterans Lotus and Orchard Lounge will also join the lineup, as well as newcomers Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and Ghost Light—each performing two shows throughout the event. Every show is guaranteed to be an extraordinary experience for fans, set in a variety of unique venues, including the beach main stage, poolside gazebo, and an open-air palapa—all steps away from guest rooms and all-inclusive amenities.Venturing into its 12th year, the event continues to take it to the next level by maintaining its intimacy and bringing fans experiences that extend beyond the music, found only at Holidaze. Curated experiences include interactive artist-hosted activities and workshops, poolside competitions, theme nights, an autograph signing, morning yoga, charitable day of service, and so much more. Guests also have the opportunity to book select off-site excursions to explore the beauty and culture of the surrounding Mayan region extending from Cancun to Tulum.The event is all-inclusive, with a variety of room selections (including some stage front and oceanfront suites), an array of all-inclusive dining options, fully equipped fitness centers, world-class spas, and unlimited drinks at bars throughout the properties and the concert area. Check out the full lineup below, and head over to Holidaze’s website for more information and booking.last_img read more

Leipzig vs Bayern: An Unlikely Top of the Table Clash

first_imgBoth sides go into the game on Saturday in the Red Bull Arena on the back of victories.Bayern ended Darmstadt’s stay in the Bundesliga with a 1-0 win, while Leipzig ensured their place in the Champions League group phase next season with a 4-1 victory at Hertha Berlin.Star striker Timo Werner was again the man of the match for Leipzig with two goals, before substitute Davie Selke struck late for his first Bundesliga brace.RB Leipzig Sporting Director, Ralf Rangnick, said that the victory against Berlin placed their match against Bayern into a different dimension. “It has changed everything. Now that we know that we will play in the Champions League next season, we have no pressure against Bayern.“To be able to play two Bundesliga matches as a promoted team without having to pick up three points is a privilege. What we have achieved stands above all at the moment. The team earned that.”For Philipp Lahm the game in Leipzig will be the second-last of his career, as he is to retire at the end of the season. Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti paid a tribute to the world champion. “I would be glad to have 20 Philipp Lahms in my squad. He is so professional.”The Bayern captain was rested against Darmstadt, but it seems likely that the Italian will field him in the high-profile match.According to the Sports Director of StarTimes Media Division Cole He Xin, Lahm is a crowd favourite throughout Africa. “After leading Germany to the World Cup title in Brazil, he has become an icon of German football.”“I am sure just about everybody who has the opportunity to do so, will tune in to watch what will undoubtedly be a great Bundesliga game between two excellent sides.“It will be Philipp Lahm’s last away game in the Bundesliga and that alone already makes it a must-see fixture.”The game will be broadcast live on the StarTimes World Football channel at 15:30 CAT on Saturday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram BUNDESLIGAWhen the fixtures for the Bundesliga were announced last year, few ball fans would have thought that a clash between rookies RB Leipzig and record champions Bayern Munich on the second-last Match-day would be a top-of-the-table clash.The fact that Bayern Munich won a fifth consecutive Bundesliga title and their 27th overall with three games to spare comes as no surprise, but that the club from eastern Germany need just one point more to secure a second place finish in their first-ever season in the top flight is nothing short of a sensation.last_img read more
