Brandi Carlile Confirms Lineup For Inaugural Girls Just Wanna Weekend Festival
Singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile will headline the inaugural Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend destination concert event at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico January 30 – February 3, 2019. Organizers Cloud 9 Adventures and The Bowery Presents recently confirmed the rest of the lineup for the all-inclusive concert vacation.
Brandi Carlile will play a total of three shows over the course of Girls Just Wanna Weekend. Maren Morris, Indigo Girls, Margo Price, Patty Griffin, Lucius, KT Tunstall, The Secret Sisters and Ruby Amanfu round out the lineup for the inaugural event.
“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 in a statement. “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).”
All-inclusive packages include four nights at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, unlimited food and drinks including alcohol, 24 hour room service, all music performances, workshops and event-curated activities, a private balcony or terrace, an in-room liquor dispenser, a mini-fridge stocked daily with beverages, wireless internet, US and local calls, access to the pool and beach and more. A pre-sale for members of Carlile’s Bramily Fan Alliance will be able to take part in a pre-sale beginning Tuesday, July 31. Packages go on sale to the general public starting at 12 p.m. ET on Wednesday, August 1. Head to GirlsJustWannaWeekend.com for more details and booking information.
