The Resorts and Upstart Entertainment unveiled today its punk n roll-inspired music festival, “Destination Chaos” at the Senator Puerto Plata Resort and Spa in the bohemian North Coast of the Dominican Republic that kicks off January 28, 2023.

The all-inclusive party spotlights more than 15 bands, some of which will be performing multiple times. The lineup includes the godfather of n roll, Iggy Pop, SoCal’s classic from the Descendents, NY’s Parquet Courts, gypsys Gogol Bordello, Peter Hook from Joy Division (performing the classic ‘Unknown Pleasures’ in its entirety), Aussie sensation Amyl and the Sniffers, murder folk artist Amigo the and East Coast favorites Bouncing Souls, (to name a few!) who will be performing on three state of the stages throughout the beachfront resort.

Tickets for this intimate event of no more than 5,000 guests include round-trip ground transportation, accommodation, entertainment and unlimited meals, tapas and top-shelf cocktails (and mocktails!) as part of The Resort’s “All You Can Everything” program. Guests can choose from room packages that appeal to budget conscious attendees or if preferred, a 1,000 square foot villa with a private swimming pool overlooking a panoramic sea and the resort’s kilometer- front.

Mark Stern, the event’s producer who formerly spent 22 years as a co-producer/booker and curator of Las Vegas’ legendary Punk Bowling festival, has parted ways with the organization to launch entertainment brand Upstart Entertainment and DESTINATION CHAOS with his partner, and visual creator, Chris Wicke.

“I am looking forward to exploring new and creative ideas I have for throwing events, as well as, working with The Resorts crew. I always strive to give the audience and the bands an amazing that transcends the typical when putting on an event,” said Stern. “Developing has been a long-time vision that’s finally coming to fruition and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way it all came together.” Adding, “ is so much more than just a music festival, it’s a party in paradise, offering everything you could want to do, taste and without a single bill once you arrive.”

“By providing such an intimate venue for these big artists, we feel like ‘Destination Chaos’ is a true 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 Resorts.
