NASHVILLE – January 28, 2019 – Four-time Entertainer of the year Luke Bryan wrapped Crash My Playa - 5th Year Fiesta concert event in Riviera Maya, Mexico on Saturday night. The concert destination weekend SOLD OUT for a fifth consecutive year and featured two headline shows by Luke as well as Thomas Rhett and Luke Combs. Additional performers included Dustin Lynch, Jake Owen, Chris Janson, Mitchell Tenpenny, Lauren Alaina, Jon Langston, Travis Denning, Kendell Marvel, and DJ Rock.
Crash My Playa - 5th Year Fiesta kicked off last Wednesday afternoon with a pool party set by Langston and performances filled the four day event through Saturday night when Bryan concluded the weekend with his second headline set. Owen, Janson, Combs, Tenpenny, Dustin and Alaina all performed at the pool stage with high energy shows. Lynch’s Friday afternoon pool performance was a marathon 3-hour set inclusive of a spinning wheel of prizes, a Mariachi band cameo and Bryan joining for a surprise appearance. Alaina closed out the pool appearances on Saturday afternoon.
Combs set the tone of the weekend with the first headline night. Owen’s performance the following night made magic out of the rain before Bryan took the stage for the first of his two headline nights. Thomas Rhett made a cameo in Bryan’s Thursday evening concert and Alaina did the same during Thomas Rhett’s headline concert on Friday night. Bryan wrapped up the four-day event with a “Luke & Friends” set that included collaborations Janson, Lynch, Gavin DeGraw, David Lee Murphy, Alaina and Tenpenny with a very special appearance on stage by Bryan’s Mom LeClaire Bryan.
The four-night tropical getaway and concert experience was designed and produced by CID Presents as the ultimate all-inclusive Caribbean concert vacation. Guests were not only treated to poolside and nightly beachfront concerts, but were also provided with airport transportation, 24-hour concierge, optional daily activities and off-site adventures such as ATV’s and Zip Lines, Catamaran, Snorkeling, Deep Sea Fishing and more. The event was self-produced by the production arm of CID Entertainment, the premier music travel and fan-focused experiential agency. Having developed and implemented VIP and travel packages for Luke’s tours for years, CID was the perfect partner for Crash My Playa, designing a country music festival where fans could see their favorite artists on stage and enjoy the sun, beach, food and adventures with their friends.
