Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend—a brand new destination concert vacation featuring an all female-fronted lineup produced by Cloud 9 Adventures in partnership withThe Bowery Presents—will take place at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico from January 30-February 3, 2019. In addition to multiple shows by Carlile, Girls Just Wanna Weekend will feature Maren MorrisIndigo GirlsMargo Price,Patty GriffinLuciusKT TunstallThe Secret Sisters and Ruby Amanfu.

Of her inspiration behind the event, Carlile comments, “Mainstream festivals in the U.S. habitually exclude women as headline artists equal to men. I was brought up by Lilith Fair to believe that men and women enjoy live music equally and that women can not only headline a festival—they can BE a festival. I’m proud to announce that our festival has an ALL female-fronted lineup. I would absolutely LOVE to see a ton of men there supporting women in rock and roll, I want to see mothers with children, single people, LGBTQ brothers and sisters letting it all go for a weekend together in harmony (with bottomless tequila on hand to assist).”

Girls Just Wanna Weekend will be held at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, a luxurious all-inclusive resort located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Guests can choose from a variety of well-appointed room categories available, including Concert Courtyard rooms, stagefront suites and lush tropical views spread throughout the property. Members of the Bramily Fan Alliance—Carlile’s official fan club—will get access to opt-in to an exclusive pre-sale through the Bramily website until July 25, 2018. Those who register will be eligible for a pre-sale beginning Tuesday, July 31 with public on sale starting at 12:00pm ET on Wednesday, August 1.
