Update: Destination Chaos is now postponed to October 8-14, 2023.
Punk rock is headed toward Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic from January 28-February 4 2023. For the first time in this icon’s career, Iggy Pop is gearing up to take winter by storm with his “Destination Chaos” resort-style festival experience.
The event takes place at the Senator Puerto Plata Resort and Spa in the bohemian North Coast of the Dominican Republic kicks off January 28, 2023, and the debauchery lasts for seven days!
Along with headliners Iggy Pop, the line-up includes The Descendants, Gogol Bordello, Peter Hook & The Light (performing Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album), Bouncing Souls, Amigo The Devil and many more. The all-inclusive rager highlights more than 15 bands, some of which will be performing multiple times throughout the experience across three stages at the resort.
The experience includes unlimited food, tapas, cocktails and non-alcoholic options as part of the resort’s “All You Can Everything” program. Guests can choose from room packages that appeal to affordable options or a lavish choice of a 1,000-square-foot villa with a private swimming pool overlooking a panoramic sea and the resort’s beachfront.
“Destination Chaos is so much more than just a music festival, it’s a party in paradise, offering everything you could want to do, taste and experience without a single bill once you arrive,” said the event’s producer Mike Stern in a press statement.
You can relax on the beach and enjoy all the music you can but there will also be time for various excursions in Puerto Plata. Whether you want to take cable cars up mountains, to exploring the Brugal Rum Factory, or walk along the city’s historic old colonial-era center.
“By providing such an intimate venue for these big artists, we feel like ‘Destination Chaos’ is a true tribute to the craft and to the culture. By making it exclusive and yet affordable, we feel it will remain as a week to remember for a very long time”, said Jak Severson, CEO of The Experience Resorts.
