The annual festival known as Holidaze is branded as “the ultimate vacation for fans of Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, and the Disco Biscuits” and every year it continues to impress fans that make the trek to wherever the Cloud 9 crew decide to host it (with 2018’s being stationed at Now Sapphire and Dreams in Puerto Morelos, Mexico). With jam and/or tronica friends like Lotus, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Ghost Light and Orchard Lounge joining the three headlining bands as part of the vacation, it was four full days of music on and around the resort, and it looked like an absolutely incredible time. I think I need to go next year.
Our friend Stephen Olker was on hand to shoot the festival and brought back four big galleries for us to sort through. Scroll down for the first day and hit the NEXT button to scroll through the different days at the festival… —Editor
