December 18, 2017 – Cloud 9 Adventures and Zac Brown Band announce the full lineup for Castaway with Southern Ground, an all-inclusive concert vacation held over four nights at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Mexico. Joining Zac Brown Band, the event lineup includes performances by Jake Owen, Blackberry Smoke, Cam, The Record Company, LANCO, Drake White & The Big Fire, The Original Wailers, Darrell Scott, and Coy Bowles & The Fellowship. Shows will be placed between two unique venues placed behind the exquisite backdrop of the Caribbean Sea, making for an exceptional music vacation experience.
Extending way beyond the music, the schedule is highly curated to bring artists and fans together in a close-knit community. From artist-led workshops and activities, to poolside contests, beach games, specialty programs, daily yoga, and a curated theme night, the experience provides fully enriched opportunities throughout all four days. Guests also are able to book selected off-site excursions to explore the local culture and natural beauty of the surrounding Mayan region extending from Cancun to Tulum.
The Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is a luxurious all-inclusive resort located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, with all meals, beverages, concerts, and activities included in the event package price. Guests can choose from a wide variety of remaining room categories, including concert courtyard suites, oceanfront suites, and lush tropical views spread throughout the property - all within easy walking distance of the main stage and late night shows.
Castaway with Southern Ground is partnering again with the charitable organization Positive Legacy, encouraging artists and fans to participate in a day of service and cultural connection in the local community as a way of giving back. In addition to the day of service project, the event will feature an auction and a donation drive to benefit the local community. The money raised contributes to the ongoing Positive Legacy humanitarian projects, as well as for Zac Brown’s 501(c)(3) non-profit camp, Camp Southern Ground.

Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning multi-platinum artists Zac Brown Band are currently on their 40+ date 'WELCOME HOME' North American tour to support their new album 'WELCOME HOME,' the band's fourth consecutive No. 1 Country album and fifth consecutive top ten on the Billboard 200.
Produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and In The Arena Productions, and recorded at Southern Ground Nashville Studio, Rolling Stone called the album "southern storytelling, rootsy instrumentation and the sonic swell of eight bandmates who, once again, are firing on the same cylinder."
Billboard calls Zac Brown Band “one of the biggest success stories in country music over the past decade,” following three platinum-selling albums (‘Uncaged,’ ‘You Get What You Give,’ and ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’), the 5x platinum ‘The Foundation,’ their 2013 project ‘The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1,’ and selling over 25 million singles and eight million albums. To date, the band has achieved 15 #1 radio singles, and are the second act to top both the country and active rock formats. 2016’s “BLACK OUT THE SUN” tour also made history, breaking attendance records at Boston’s Fenway Park and Camden’s BB&T Pavilion. Other recent milestones include a performance at the Super Bowl LI pregame festivities, Live Nation’s Twitter Concert Series first live stream, and an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
