Island Exodus 8 Announced

Gov’t Mule is proud to announce Island Exodus 8, taking place January 14-18, 2017 (4 nights) returning to The Jewel Paradise Cove Resort in Runaway Bay, Jamaica. Spend your days in the sun and your nights in the sand with epic, intimate beachfront concerts each night. Gov't Mule will play 3 2-set shows and Warren Haynes will perform "solo" one night. In addition, Soulive will play 3 sets and special guests Nicki Bluhm, Marcus King & Ron Holloway will be joining in throughout the event.

Traditionally, many Island Exodus Attendees like to add a day to the front of their trip and come in a day early to ease in to their adventure. Here's another reason to do so: The Marcus King Band will be performing an "Exodus Eve" show at the resort on Friday January 13th.

For those of you who want to delay your inevitable return to 'the real world,' this year there will be the option to add one extra day on the back end, checking out on January 19th. Those sticking around will be treated to another night of music with a truly incredible band, who will be announced shortly.

PRE-SALE & ON-SALE INFO:
Island Exodus 7 Attendee Pre-Sale: Mon. March 21 @ 10a EDT
All Other Previous Island Exodus Attendees: Tue. March 22 @ 10a EDT

Island Exodus 8

Wow...Island Exodus 7. We really can't put into words how much fun that was...guess you really had to be there.

We hope everyone liked our new home at The Jewel Paradise Coveā€¦ our goal was to give you "the same ol' Island Exodus but in a nicer resort, along with better sound and production." It certainly felt like that to us. We hope you agree.

We're proud to announce that ISLAND EXODUS 8 will be returning to Jewel Paradise Cove over Martin Luther King holiday weekend in January 2017. We'll be in touch shortly with further details including the exact event dates and Pre-Sale info for returning guests.

We can't wait to see you all again.

Island Exodus 7: Save The Date

Gov't Mule's Island Exodus returns January 15-19, 2016. After 6 incredible years in Negril, Island Exodus 7 will move to The Jewel Paradise Cove Resort in Runaway Bay, Jamaica - ranked by Trip Advisor as the #1 resort in Runaway Bay.

Stay tuned for more information, including what other bands and artists will be joining Gov't Mule in Jamaica and on-sale information.

Hello Island Exodus-ers!

We wanted to reach out to you, the "Repeat Mule-fenders," who have been a huge part of Island Exodus since it started, and let you guys be the first to know that Island Exodus 7 will take place January 15 -19, 2016 at The Jewel Paradise Cove in Runaway Bay, Jamaica.

As may of you know, The Grand Lido Resort in Negril, our home for the first 6 Island Exoduses, recently announced that it would be closing to undertake a long-needed renovation. This project will take close to 2 years and when its finished, its possible that the new resort will choose not to have concert events like ours. While we were sad to find out that we would not be able to return, we also welcomed the opportunity to move Island Exodus to a new home.

We've talked to many of you over the years and asked your opinion on moving and many of you welcomed the idea of going to a new place, while some of you liked the familiarity of the Grand Lido and had an "if its not broke, why fix it" attitude. Now, we welcome the opportunity to do both...We're moving to a new, nicer resort which will give us the chance to present the Island Exodus event we all know and love but in a better fashion!

We will be working to improve the Island Exodus experience, but we aren't looking to change or reinvent it. The location may be different but the things we all love about IE will stay the same. The stage will still be on the beach, there will still be late-nite bonfires with delicious local food, the new resort also has a Japanese Habachi restaurant... And, yes, Bigga will be there. As far as the new, improved experience at JPC, we're looking forward to a resort with 3 big pools, a water slide, swim up bars and pool concierge service in addition to its nice stretch of beach, new restaurant options and renovated rooms!

We hope you'll join us on the next phase of the Island Exodus adventure this coming January in Runaway Bay. Stay tuned for more info, which we'll have to you real soon!

Respect,
Gov't Mule, Hard Head Management & Island Gigs
