Vikter Duplaix has been keeping us grooving with his Kiss-n-Grind parties for a minute now. Though the event first kicked off in Los Angeles, it didn’t take long before it was in such high demand that Duplaix was able to take the show on the road, embarking first on an East Coast tour before ultimately adding Atlanta to the mix a couple of years later. Well, now, the epic dance party event, which has featured the likes of guest DJs Questlove, Talib Kweli and DJ Rashida over the years, is hitting the road once again, except this time you’ll need to pack your passport in addition to your dancing shoes.
For the inaugural international event, Duplaix is bringing partygoers an entirely new adventure with The Riviera Maya Experience during Memorial Day Weekend. The five-day event will help attendees ring in the summer season with a curated blend of music, art, culture, love and life. More than just a dance party, the long weekend promises to immerse music lovers in the ultimate experience where they will get to dance away their days and nights while looking out over the Caribbean Sea. And who wouldn’t want to take a cool dip in a Mexican cenote while Duplaix and friends spin nothing but the best music?
Springing from a partnership with Up in the Air Life, Kiss-n-Grind’s The Riviera Maya Experience offers prospective attendees the chance to purchase either VIP or General Admission packages with prices ranging from $850 to $1899 per person. In addition to getting your groove on, participants will also get to soothe their mind, body and soul with events like a VIP spiritual breakfast, morning meditation and group excursions to tour the historic Mayan attractions, Mexican folk art shopping and an optional yacht cruise.
The Riviera Maya Experience will take place May 23rd-27th and is currently accepting booking reservations.
