Brandi Carlile has curated an all-female destination concert vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico, on Jan. 30–Feb. 3.
Dubbed Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend, the festival features multiple shows by Brandi as well as performances by Maren Morris, Indigo Girls, Margo Price, Patty Griffin, Lucius, KT Tunstall, The Secret Sisters and Ruby Amanfu.
“Mainstream festivals in the U.S. habitually exclude women as headline artists equal to men,” says Brandi. “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, an all-inclusive resort located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Guests can choose from a variety of packages, which are available for pre-sale on July 31 and public sale on Aug. 1.
