Dead & Company ‘Playing In the Sand 2022’ (Jan 13-16, 2022)


And now for some good news! Dead & Company will return to Mexico for Playing in the Sand, the band’s highly acclaimed concert vacation experience, in partnership with CID Presents and On Location. The event – hosted January 13-16, 2022 at the spectacular AAA Four Diamond Awarded, Moon Palace Cancún – features three unforgettable nights of Dead & Company performing three unique, intimate concerts on a private stretch of white sand beach just feet from the Caribbean Sea.

All-inclusive Dead & Company Playing in the Sand 2022 packages will go on sale to the public on Friday, April 9th at 1 PM ET at Previous Playing in the Sand guests will be invited to return to the beach via the Alumni Pre-Sale, which begins Wednesday, April 7th at 1 PM ET.

CID Presents and Dead & Company will continue their work with longtime sustainability partner REVERB, to expand Playing in the Sand’s comprehensive greening program and make the entire event climate-positive. As part of REVERB’s forthcoming Music Climate Revolution campaign, at least 130% of emissions generated during the 2022 concerts – including guest, artist and crew travel as well as transportation and energy usage throughout the resort and venue – will be neutralized via verifiable clean energy or carbon mitigation projects. In addition to a single-use plastic-free concert area, all waste discarded throughout the resort will be sorted during the event and diverted from landfill. These efforts have resulted in more responsible and sustainable event production while directly contributing to important local reforestation projects in Mexico which fight the climate crisis.

Identified as a low carbon tourism provider, Moon Palace Cancún will provide guests with a wide range of luxury accommodations just steps from CID Presents’ state of the art concert venue. This oceanfront sanctuary offers magnificent rooms, gourmet all-inclusive food and drink, 24-hour room service as well as plenty of activities on both land and sea, including the luxurious AWE-Spa and a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. CID Presents will closely monitor relevant recommendations and guidelines imposed by local authorities and The World Health Organization to ensure a safe experience for all guests.
