Dominican Holidaze 2016 Day 1 :: 12.01.16 :: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Yesterday marked the official start to the 2016 installment of Dominican Holidaze. This year’s event is being held at Now Onyx and Breathless Resort & Spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The destination music festival got underway at sunset on Thursday with a performance by The Floozies. After a welcome toast, the jamtronica vibe continued with STS9 delivering a two set performance that included “Shock Doctrine” and “Love Don’t Terrorize” in the first half and a second set that began with a sequence of “This, Us” > “When the Dust Settles Reprise” > “Four Year Puma” and closed with “World Go Round.”
The first night continued with the Disco Biscuits holding things down for two sets. Classics such as the opening “Floes,” an inverted “Little Betty Boop” and a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Run Like Hell” punctuated set one. The second set picked up where the first had ended with a continuation of “Spraypaint.” Inverted versions of “Digital Buddha” and “Confrontation” were paired together before the set closing ending of “Morph Dusseldorf” brought the performance to an end. Late night entertainment was further provided by a DJ set from DEITCH. Photographer Joshua Timmermans is in Punta Cana, view his gallery from the first day of Dominican Holidaze below.
