    "ANTHRAX, OVERKILL, SUPERJOINT, METAL ALLEGIANCE, DEATH ANGEL Set For METAL MAYA Heavy Metal Dest-Fest

    Image

    ASK4 Entertainment — the creator and producer of ShipRocked — has announced the first annual Metal Maya, a four-day all-inclusive heavy metal destination festival vacation from October 29 to November 2 at the luxurious Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun, just south of Cancun in the paradise of Puerto Morelos on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula

    Metal Maya is the perfect place to celebrate Halloween and Dia de los Muertos (also known as Day Of The Dead and "Hanal Pixán" to the Mayans of Yucatan Peninsula) and will feature performances from a dozen bands in a tropical paradise. The initial music lineup includes:

    ANTHRAX
    OVERKILL
    SUPERJOINT
    METAL ALLEGIANCE
    DEATH ANGEL
    OTEP
    TIM "RIPPER" OWENS

    Metal Maya packages start at only $1399 per person and go on sale Wednesday, April 12 at 1:00 p.m. ET at http://www.MetalMaya.com.

    Metal Maya guests will enjoy luxury accommodations, and tickets include gourmet meals, and all beverages (including alcohol). The all-inclusive heavy metal dest-fest vacation will feature bands performing on multiple stages in an intimate environment with only 1,000 guests (with two performances each from ANTHRAX, OVERKILL, SUPERJOINT and heavy metal all-star band METAL ALLEGIANCE), artist-hosted events, onsite activities, excursions and tours (available for additional fees), theme nights and more.

    Guests will enjoy festive celebrations on both Halloween (October 31) and the traditional Mexican Dia de los Muertos (November 1) when guests are encouraged to dress up in calaca (skull) masks and sugar skull makeu

    Ground transportation from Cancun airport is included with all Metal Maya vacation packages. In addition, for those who want to extend their stay at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun, discounted rooms will be available to Metal Maya guests just before and after the event. Please note that single-day passes will not be available as this is a full vacation package

    Wow. I can't imagine 1,000 metalheads at that place for a metalfest.
    I've never actually been to Now Sapphire, but I've come close. It happens to be one place I've researched thoroughly because I stumbled across their webcam one day and got curious about the resort. It doesn't seem quite large enough to accommodate that many people, or more than one stage. I'm still kicking myself for not booking a trip there when they had an astonishing deal (basically $140/day all-inclusive), and they haven't had anything that good since.

    Still, up until 2011 I never thought 3,000 metalheads could successfully take over a cruise ship, either. :lol:

    Wanna bet no one there will end up eating cheese sandwiches out of Styrofoam?

    It's not the kind of line-up I'd shell out serious bucks to attend, though I doubt people going to this are doing it solely to see those bands. Looks pretty nice.

    Now, now, those poor* #DumpsterFyre Festival attendees also got a few pieces of lettuce with those cheese sandwiches. :lol:

    Same here. If there was a wider variety of bands (and some more of them) I might consider it. It DOES look like a nice place...and the attendees will not be staying in FEMA disaster tents with no power, no water, no luggage, etc. :shock:

    Wow.

    I don't know anyone who was booked for it, but it's always sad to see an event like that founder.
    Looks like they're taking a firm, pro-active stance on issuing full refunds and a $100 credit, which is good to see.
