One Big Holiday 2018
March 2 - 6, 2018
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Punta Cana
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
After three amazing years in Mexico, One Big Holiday moved to our new home at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. With sunny days and 75 degree nights, the weather at One Big Holiday 2018 was absolutely perfect. From the moment we stepped on the grounds, there was a palpable energy that filled the air. With these performances being My Morning Jacket's only shows of 2018, excitement and anticipation permeated the grounds. On top of three nights of My Morning Jacket, guests enjoyed sets from One Big Holiday regulars, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, along with Portugal. The Man, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Spoon, Broken Social Scene, Toots and The Maytals, Sylvan Esso, Moon Taxi, J. Roddy Walston and The Business, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Patrick Hallahan & David Givan DJ Party, Britt Daniel DJ Set, and Made of Oak.
In true rockstar fashion, My Morning Jacket used their performances to work their way through their entire studio discography featuring various sit-ins from Preservation Hall Jazz Band throughout the event. With no covers, the band dug deep into their catalogue and left it all out on the stage each night, capping it all off with an absolutely explosive rendition of "One Big Holiday" to close out their final set.
In addition to four unforgettable nights of music, guests enjoyed a number of awesome activities such as the Deck O' Ration contest, Lip Sync, Beer Share, One Big BINGO competition, and many more.
