CANCUN, Quintana Roo, Mexico, January 12, 2016 — Grand Oasis Cancun, the leading all-inclusive vacation resort brand in the Mexican Caribbean, hosted one of the most talked-about New Year’s celebrations on the beach of the Grand Oasis Cancun complex. World-renowned electronic music superstars Empire of the Sun and Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia took the beachfront stage for nearly nine hours (from 9 PM Dec 31st until 6 AM Jan 1st) in front of a record audience of more than 9,000 attendees.


The Australian duo Empire of the Sun have been international electronic megastars since their 2008 debut album, Walking on a Dream, which reached double platinum in Australia and gold in England. The title song and “We Are the People” are crowd favorites on the global dance circuit. The duo followed up their success with 2013’s Ice on the Dune and its top single, “Alive.”


Cementing their place as the leading all-inclusive brand in entertainment and gastronomy, Oasis Hotels & Resorts offers nightly cirque-style shows at The Pyramid at Grand Oasis, complimentary for all hotel guests, and also hosts several music festivals throughout the year. 2016’s line up kicks off January 16 with Dance U, a series of weekend concerts featuring some of the most popular acts in the electronic dance music world, which runs through March 26. Oasis’ annual Jazz, Electro Latin Beat and Country Festivals will all feature a unique line up of artists from the genre.
