After closing out their summer tour schedule this past weekend, Dead & Company have announced that they will return to Mexico in January 2020 for another round of Playing in the Sand, the group’s winter destination concert event.
Next year’s installation of the festival will take place Jan. 16–19, 2020, in Riviera Cancún, Mexico. The CID Presents-promoted event will feature three nights of Dead & Co. music on the beach. Ticket packages will go on sale July 15 at 1 p.m. ET, with an alumni pre-sale beginning July 12.
This year’s Playing in the Sand brought Dead & Co. back to the oceanside with sets from the host band as well as Dumpstaphunk and Larkin Poe. Stay tuned to the event’s website and social media for more information on Playing in the Sand 2020.
Dead & Company wrapped up their summer 2019 slate on Saturday evening with the second of two shows at Folsom Field in Boulder, CO, where the band offered two sets of Grateful Dead favorites and a three-song encore of “Ripple,” “Brokedown Palace” and “Playing in the Band.” See the full setlist below.
