Dead & Company have announced dates for their 2022 Mexico destination event, Playing in the Sand. The now annual shows will take place Jan. 13-16, 2022 at the Moon Palace resort in Cancún, Mexico.
According to a statement, Dead & Co. and CID Presents will work with their sustainability partner REVERB in order 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,” read a statement. “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.”
The band shared a short promo vid to their social media when announcing the dates. “Now it’s finally time for some good news,” they wrote, before adding, “Paradise waits.” Watch the video below.
