Title: OBH4!
Post by: millerjustin on Jul 18, 2017, 01:50 PM
let's discuss here and share what we learn prior to sale

First, I understand that stage location is not confirmed yet - most likely beach, but not sure where yet.  From what I understand from prior WSP attendees, it was closer to Bldg 2, but they may shift central?

Late night stuff typically indoors in Boulevard area

Looks like a long list of artists. Schedule should be interesting. PtM heading the other night?

Also looks like they have moved from Justin Helton to Reno for artwork. I can get behind that switch up.

Definitely! Nice catch!  Love Justin's work I remember wondering last year how he would be able to keep it fresh for another year. Nice change and love Reno's work as well.

I blew right past the artwork at the top banner, but noticed his little paper boat thing that appears in a lot of his work and the light bulb went off.

i got in line 90 minutes before stuff went on sale.  it would have been an agonizing wait if not for the staff bringing us nonstop food and drink. turned out to be kind of a mini-party. :beer:

Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: sillyboob on Jul 18, 2017, 04:02 PM
So this should suss out so that there's a sunset show, an opener, a headliner & a late night set every night. Not bad.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: APR on Jul 18, 2017, 04:11 PM
I noticed the great lineup and then the great art work all around the banner.  The resort and rooms look great too.  I'm glad we have a week to plan and strategize because March is not good timing for me.

I would guess Spoon and PTM co-headline MMJ's off night..... maybe PTM goes on last but they'd each get full length sets.
Title: Re: OBH4!

Can someone in the simplest of terms explain the resort credits to me. We tried to rent one of those cabanas over the water last year and they were like yeah you can but you have to buy like a 200 dollar bottle of champagne. Is there a way to just use them without spending extra money?

you can use them for resort amenities that normally cost money above all-inclusive (like massages and premium booze in restaurants).  Only catch is that you pay a 20% charge for credits you use.  So if you use 100 credits, you'll have a $20 charge on your room.

Does anyone know how much larger capacity this venue is from the original HRH? Trying to figure out how quickly this will sell out. This lineup is insane and will draw a lot more people than previous years is what I' thinking.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: sillyboob on Jul 19, 2017, 06:53 PM
From what I've read, OBH 1 & 2 were 2500 people maximum.  OBH3 was 3000, and I believe OBH4 is set at 3500 maximum.  This is just from what I've read though.  I have no way of corroborating this.

I was there the first year and it was one of the best concerts/music experiences of my life. I took three years off to head on Jam Cruise, but I will more than likely be back with this line up. So excited!

Also, I got my presale code and password today. So they are slowly coming out.

I cannot for the life of me figure out if resort credits can be used to play golf.   one page will give me the impression golf is included, then another makes it seem like you'll have to fork over $200 for a round.

help? anyone? with a course on-site, I'm going to have to play at least one round.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: Bulldog on Jul 20, 2017, 11:04 AM
I gotta believewe will need to pay. I played in Mexico and it was about $200 per round, but with it on site I will do it again this year in a heartbeat....

Thanks for all the reassurance, everyone!

Booked! Now just have to somehow secretly make payments while also paying for the wedding.

Here's a question: Is there any chance of getting a poster? With our work schedules, we just can't get there until the 2nd and I feel like I read about having to queue up super early for merchandise. Will it all be gone already?

We are in the same boat and this is my only concern.  There was along line this past OBH, but not sure when posters ran out.  Maybe we can find poster buddies to pick up an extra one to hold for us until we arrive?
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: BWE on Jul 26, 2017, 12:30 PM
Yeah, I'm sure they put a limit on how many items people can buy -- we're newbies, so we don't really have any buddies that I know of to ask, but I'd really really like to get a poster!

So, they do open it up on the first morning? Why don't they just print MORE?  :shocked:

The merch stand will open up at noon on Friday, they won't have anything available prior to for early arrivals. I've never had a problem getting what I wanted, but mostly everything will sell out. OBH1 and OBH2 I arrived by 11:00 am and was maybe 50 or so in line, OBH3 I got there about 10:45 and the line was over 100 deep by that point. We've all gone merch crazy, but I imagine for the larger venue and crowd, they would have a larger poster run. I believe last years run was 850 and didn't sell out the first day. If all else fails, check out the artists website afterwards. I believe this years artist will be http://clintonreno.com/
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: jmoney on Jul 26, 2017, 12:50 PM
Every one getting a poster would be wonderful, but I guess they don't want to print thousands of posters.  I think printing enough for one per room would be the way to go. 

They open the march line at 12pm on the first day.  People line up pretty early.  It is much easier of a line to wait in with servers bringing you drinks and food nearby.

I am sure we can find someone to grab a poster if needed.  There are a lot of kind hearted, good people at this event.

Post by: Landathelost on Jul 26, 2017, 02:50 PM

I don't believe so, but I never really pay attention because I bring my own tube. I know one year they had a plastic sleeve they gave you that was like a poster condom. I would advise bringing your own tube. You can carry them on the plane or check them in a large enough suitcase.

They only provided plastic sleeves. Be sure to bring your own.

Fairly certain you could buy a tube at the merch table for maybe 5 dollars. I remember standing in line and thinking that was nice. ( I had brought my own)

We got to the merch stand at maybe 11:30 and the line was HUGE. People serving me drinks in line did nothing to reduce my stress. Everything someone walked away with a poster, I got more worried. I didn't have to be. There were plenty of posters by the time I got to the front.

No idea if they do it again, but last year they had a cash only line which moved much more quickly, so if you have the cash, get in that line.

Looking forward to adding one more poster to the wall, but I'm not sure where I'm going to put it.

I would personally not wait on flights. I'm generally pretty solid with this stuff and the challenge with most flights into PUJ is that they are feeder flights from a small handful of cities (ATL, MIA, FLL, PHL, JFK, ORD), there just isn't anywhere near the supply that an already low cost air destination like CUN had to offer. Not to say that there won't be a deal to be found here and there, but the more seats that are sold, the less inventory there is even when a sale occurs (most sale fares won't apply/be available to book on flights that are selling well).

Also, if you book with Southwest (who has flights from ATL, BWI, and FLL), and the price goes down, they will give you a credit for no additional charge.

Super excited for OBH, much less excited for the travel required to get there.

Post by: slappymoe on Aug 27, 2017, 09:55 AM
been on sale for a month now.  kinda funny thinking back to all the people worried about it selling out immediately and getting left out.  not only are there still rooms left, some room options that were once listed as sold out are on sale again.  if you missed out on the caribbean sand suite first time around, now's your chance to upgrade to a room closer to the beach.

it'll be interesting to see if it eventually does sell out and how long it takes.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: excel on Aug 27, 2017, 03:18 PM
So how much more capacity does this resort have than the Riviera Maya resort? Seems weird that they sold out faster last year when this years lineup is arguably better. At least in my opinion.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: slappymoe on Aug 27, 2017, 03:34 PM
I think there are roughly 500 more rooms in punta cana. Something like 1250 vs 1750.

I'm guessing the extra time and cost of flying to the DR, the fact that they didn't skip a year this time, and NYE have combined to lessen demand. Still, I'll be surprised if it doesn't sell out eventually.

Interesting that you have Toots & The Maytals playing an early afternoon show.  I wonder how the timing of the sets will be spread out, since there are enough acts for an afternoon set, an evening opener, a headliner, and a late night set every night.

Okay - Just nearly had a minor heart attack.  Logged into JetBlue.com and saw that my connecting flight to Punta Cana from Fort Lauderdale was shown as Cancelled.  Turns out there had been a minor time change on the connecting flight, so the 'original' itinerary was cancelled, but the new itinerary was still valid.  So, for anyone connecting to Punta Cana on JetBlue on March 1, flight 173, just know that Cancelled = new flight time.

So, I booked OBH for me and the hubby as a surprise Christmas/wedding gift/honeymoon.

And now, I finally get to spill the beans in less than a month (fingers crossed he can get the couple days off he needs)...any thoughts on a creative/cool way to tell him he finally gets to go?

I was hoping for something small that he could unwrap since just saying, "Hey guess what, I booked OBH" seems a little anti-climactic. Also, I spent oodles, as you all know, so the little reveal can't be too extravagant.

Day 3
Hooray for Riff Raff afternoon on beach. Then Sylvan Esso>PTM on main. Then Moon Taxi on beach stage late night. Britt Daniel DJ set also late night and opposing MT on the eclipse terrace.

Day 4
PHJB on beach in the afternoon. Then Nathaniel Rateliff>MMJ on main stage. J Roddy Walston and the Business closing it down late night on the beach. Made of Oak also opposing latenught on eclipse terrace.

My take. 1st 2 days are perfect. Love that BSS and Spoon are setting up the Jacket and PHJB on the beach will be a swinging comedown. Must pace myself day 1. Toots afternoon set should be sweet. Any Toots recommendations?

Need some help on day 3. Sylvan is a snoozer live (JMHO), not too familiar with Portugal the Man and totally ignorant on Riff Raff.

Love J Roddy but haven't heard any Nathaniel Rateliff.  I also expect a Jim appearance for PHJBs beach set. J Roddy will burn it down to close.

Overall, I'm pumped!!!

Now that the NYE run is over, it is time to focus our attention to the next big thing, only two months to the day, away - ONE BIG HOLIDAY 2018, in a new destination, with a real beachfront (with a stage)!!!

Some interesting reading about the setlists for the NYE run. I'm experiencing those shows today via the internet (and remembering some of the covers from OBH 2017).  The one thing I'm going to say on the subject of cover songs at OBH 2018, I'm hoping that night 4 gets a set heavy with MMJ songs, maybe a cover song or two early in the set.  I'm a huge fan of the covers that MMJ does, but I'd like to see them end OBH 2018 with just a powerhouse set of My Morning Jacket.  It's why we spend thousands of dollars and fly many many miles to see the band.  Bring the songs we love to hear and dance to and sing along with.  The covers are great, but the originals are where our collective hearts are!!!

Pumped for OBH4. Anyone know who controls the Facebook group. Sent request just waiting on an addition. This will be a first OBH for me and my buddy but by no means our first Jacket shows, or festival experience. How would the experience compare to say Bonnaroo or The Hang Out?

Welcome GTG!  I can only compare OBH to a few Coachella trips, but OBH 2 & 3 spoiled me to the point that I don't want to do regular festivals anymore.  I'd much rather do a beautiful tropical destination, a small crowd, many options for food and drink, waiters bringing drinks through the crowd, the ocean by day, music by night, and room service to start it all of the next day.

GTG its ruins you for festivals. 24 Hour room service. Drinks on demand. I woke up around 11 each day grabbed breakfast to a quick nap then headed to the pool or beach. It was paradise during the day. Then I was reminded "oh yeah were seeing MMJ tonight. This line up is incredible. Everyone is super friendly and there to have a good time. So much fun.

There's also a lot to be said about the vibe at OBH, everybody there for the same band. The love for each other is something I've never really experienced elsewhere. It's the best! Only 57 more Days :cheesy:

Great to hear. Have talked about going in years past but never pulled the trigger. Super Stoked to get down there and kick it for a few days. Got an extra days added because after seeing Monday night line up Im not sure I could leave early Tuesday morning. Almost need a day to come down off that line-up. Been a long time Jacket fan so this just makes sense.

I've done the extra day at the end of OBH 2 & 3 and it definitely helps.  But there's a weird vibe being at the resort as everyone leaves.  Seeing how our flight to the west coast gets us in at around 10pm Tuesday night, we already have to take a vacation day on Wednesday just to recover.  We are getting in a day early though this year, and like everyone, we can't wait!!!

I would love to show up a day or 2 early to chill. The friend I'm sharing a room with will be showing up the day of though (they require double occupancy for extra days as well). If anyone else is in a similar situation, and would like to split a room, let me know. I'm a 35 y/o easy going dude. Looking forward to a great trip!

Does any one know about the Dominican Republic Touris Card? Apparently we need one of these ($10) I was wondering if itís best to get it now online or wait until we get there and get it at the airport. Any information appreciated  :thumbsup:

Interesting. Good catch. Looked into it a little and it looks like theyíll issue your tourist card at immigrations when you arrive (cash of course). Would love to hear what others have experienced. Looks like there is typically a departure tax ($20) as well, but they mentioned that it is typically included in your airfare. Check your departing flight information.

been reading reviews of the punta cana airport.  pretty much every one says it's better to buy your $10 tourist card online.  if you wait until you get there, it's just one more line you'll have to wait in.
