Cloud 9 Adventures Announces the Return of Strings & Sol

It’s been a long, quiet winter for Cloud 9 Adventures, but the destination music events company is back in a big way with the return of Strings & Sol and a head-turning lineup that makes up for lost time. Set to take place December 9-13 at the all-inclusive resorts Dreams Riviera Cancun and Now Sapphire in Puerto Morelos , Mexico, the ninth incarnation of the bluegrass-centric event will feature Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, Trampled by Turtles, Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon, and more.

Over the years, Strings & Sol has cultivated a close-knit community of artists and bluegrass fans whose interactions create an intimate event for returning guests, first-timers, musicians, and staff alike. Besides mind-blowing music, attendees can expect instrument workshops, beachside jam sessions, and theme nights, not to mention the chance to explore the beauty and culture of the Maya Riviera region.

Strings & Sol is again partnering with Positive Legacy, the nonprofit arm of Cloud 9 Adventures, to encourage artists and fans to participate in a day of service in the community of Puerto Morelos as a way of giving back. Details for this year’s community outreach along with artist-hosted activities, and theme nights will be released this summer.
