Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic -- GrooveFest is not your typical music festival - it's an all inclusive resort getaway featuring some of the best names in electronic music.  

The week-long event will take place this year from September 9-15 in a luxury resort in Puerto Plata - and once you arrive, everything is included with your festival pass.  That means unlimited food, drinks, shows, and a week's worth of boat, beach, and pool parties.  This unique aspect enables festivalgoers to truly let go and enjoy the experience - no bar tabs, no cover charges, and no guestlists to worry about.
