Closer To The Sun 2015

From CloserToTheSun.com
“Slightly Stoopid and Cloud 9 Adventures have announced the second edition of CLOSER TO THE SUN 2015, a tropical concert vacation held over four nights at an all-inclusive resort surrounded by a beautiful Mayan landscape. After blowing away fans with an amazing first year experience (view the 2014 recap video here), the event returns for a second year with a new round of artists to round out the bill. The 2015 lineup again features three performances by host band Slightly Stoopid, this time joined by SOJA, Iration, Pepper, and Ozomatli, playing two shows each. In addition, special guests G. Love, Don Carlos, Karl Denson, and Ian Neville will be featured throughout the event with exclusive sit-ins and collaborations. Main performances will be held on a stage built on the beach, while late night parties will be held in an open-air palapa.

Slightly Stoopid Miles Doughty said, “Closer to the sun is the ultimate pre-holiday get away for fans and the bands. From the beach to the cenotes and ruins, the Mayan Riviera is truly a special place. We wanted to create an intimate vibes holiday adventure for our fans that is different than any other fan experience. There is nothing better than being able to jam with your friends in paradise on the beach and share those experiences with a close group of fans and friends.”

More than a series of concerts, this intimate event brings fans and performers together on a luxurious vacation where the nights are filled with performances held on the beach stage just steps away from guests’ accommodations, while the days consist of artist-hosted activities, excursions, beach games, and poolside performances. The unique setting allows casual artist interaction, artist-hosted workshops, activities and contests, as well as an autograph signing and impromptu jam sessions.

Slightly Stoopid -Closer To The Sun

Situated on pristine beaches and tropical grounds, the Now Sapphire Resort offers all-inclusive, luxurious accommodations with an intimate vibe. The resort features finely appointed guest suites, a world-class spa and fitness center, eclectic dining, and beachfront palapas, all within a short walk of your own private accommodations and the main stage. Located just north of fishing village Puerto Morelos and 25 minutes south of the Cancun Airport, the resort is conveniently located making it easy to explore the surrounding Mayan region from Cancun to Tulum. Off-site excursions to explore the beautiful Mayan region can be booked separately through the Closer to the Sun website CloserToTheSun.com.”

Radiance Dome
Available during the entire festival day and night, the multi-media geodesic Radiance Dome, which debuted to great acclaim during the 2013 Burning Man Festival, will feature glowing panels designed to inspire creative expression by melding art and interactive technology.
Winner of the 2013 LuciteLux© Just Imagine Award, the Radiance Dome during the day will project geodesic structures and transparent panels that will resonate with nature in their elegant geometry, with the triangular panels and steel creating intriguing shadows and perspectives, highlighted by colorful discs illuminated by the sun. At night, the faces of the domes vividly glow with swirling mosaics of colors in response to their surroundings. A DJ will add sound to the play of light, creating a magical experience.

Designed by Light at Play, the Radiance Dome multi-media environment composes layers of light, perspective, and animation in a 40-foot interactive and immersive geodesic environment that responds to participants as they dance to the music.
“The Radiance dome is an illuminated structure controlled by an interactive software system designed to facilitate a closer relationship between music and movement,” said Kenyon Acton, Light at Play co-owner.
“The dome consists of 200 light trans missive acrylic panels, each individually controlled and illuminated by LEDs. Each panel contributes to a coordinated light show directed by the music, the movement of those within the dome, or through interacting with an iPad. It was conceived of and created for the 2013 Burning Man festival to provide a space for tango and blues dancing,” Acton said.

For more information about the Radiance Dome, please click on the YouTube documentary prepared and posted by Light at Play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLOmLlShpVk.

Jungle Jam IV 2014

From JungleJam.com

“Slightly Stoopid, the Ocean Beach/San Diego, CA group led by multi-instrumentalists and founding members, Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald, will headline Jungle Jam IV January 16-19, 2014 in Jaco, Costa Rica.

Featuring four days of continuous music, this year’s party in the jungle also includes festival newcomers G. Love & Friends, Dumpstaphunk, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Expendables, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, Kung Fu and dopapod, as well as Jungle Jam veterans Max Creek, Oteil Burbridge, bassist for the Allman Brothers Band, Zach Deputy and Ryan Montbleau Band.

The one-of-a-kind music and camping festival in Jaco, Costa Rica is hosted by the beautiful DoceLunas Resort Hotel and includes concerts at multiple locations in the area, including beach front venues, late night clubs and local theatres, all designed to create an up-close and personal concert experience. It is not unusual for bands to play multiple days at Jungle Jam. Nor is it unusual for sets to turn into big jam sessions.

“We are stoked to have some of the best touring bands in America come ROCK JACO once again,’ said Eric Freitas, event producer for Jungle Jam IV. “This year’s line-up represents a mix of genres and styles that fit in perfect harmony with the culture, surroundings and the vibe of Costa Rica. Roots Reggae, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, Fusion, Americana, Jam and Electronic…it’s all here.”

A limited number of early bird tickets are available while supplies last starting at just $149 for a four day festival pass and $299 for a six day camping and festival pass. Camping packages include the full access to Jungle Jam IV as well as camping in a secure area and round trip airport transfers. All the amenities of a top notch camping and music festival will be available including showers, food vendors as well as a General Store. The campground will open on January 15, 2014 and close on January 21, 2014. Once the early bird packages are gone, Jungle Jam camping and festival packages will be available starting at $199 per person for the four day pass and $349 per person for a 6 day camping pass.

All-inclusive hotel packages are still available at the Best Western Jaco Beach Resort. Condo packages are available at a number of the best resorts along Jaco Beach including the La Paloma Blanca, Bahia Azul, Bahia Encantada, The Palms and Diamante Del Sol.

All camping, hotel and condo packages include festival tickets and ground transportation transfers to and from San Jose Airport.

The DoceLunas Resort has been the home for Jungle Jam since 2011 and is truly one of the gems of all Central America. Located among the towering jungle shade trees, the DoceLunas Resort is a three minute drive or a one mile walk from the beach. Wild life abounds and scarlet macaws, monkeys, geckos and anteaters all can be seen on the grounds at DoceLunas. DoceLunas offers all the amenities expected of a four-star hotel, including a full service gourmet restaurant, high speed wireless internet, a spectacular waterfall cave mosaic swimming pool, yoga studio, a full spa and beauty salon and more.

Most Jungle Jam IV performances will take place during the evenings allowing attendees the opportunity to take advantage of all that Costa Rica has to offer from zip line adventures across the rain forest, boat cruises to see crocodiles, surfing lessons, day trips to Manuel Antonio National Park and much more.”
