Brandi Carlile will head up the return of her Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend destination concert event. The second annual Girls Just Wanna Weekend will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico January 29 – February 2, 2020.
Brandi Carlile will perform three full concerts during the event. Sheryl Crow, Lake Street Dive, Patty Griffin, Lucius, Wanda Sykes (comedy set), KT Tunstall, Jade Bird, Amanda Shires and Yola are also aboard for Girls Just Wanna Weekend 2. Natalie Hemby, Katie Herzig and Ruby Amanfu are the event’s special guests. Once again, Could 9 Adventures will produce the festival in partnership with The Bowery Presents.
“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,” Carlile said when the first all-inclusive Girls Just Wanna Weekend was announced. “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).”
Packages include accommodations, unlimited food and alcohol, workshop and curated activities and more. A pre-sale for returning guests began a few weeks ago. Remaining rooms go on sale this Friday, May 10 at 12 p.m. ET. Head here for more information and to book a room.
