Your Guide To Po-Dunk Paradise
Take a look at your digital program! Since there is free WiFi at the Hard Rock Resort, we’re going paperless for this event! Our digital program has all of the info you need to prepare for your trip, and once you get to the festival, you’ll use our Kid Rock Beach app (more info on that coming soon!) to stay connected! It’ll have the schedule, a map, FAQs, and push notifications if any changes occur. Happy reading and we’ll see you in Po-Dunk Paradise soon!

Smoking is prohibited indoors, in the pools, directly in front of the main stage as well as outdoor dining areas. This includes regular cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, cigars or pipes.

Guests are permitted to smoke on their balconies. However, smoking inside your room is prohibited & may result in a cleaning charge added to your resort account. If cigarette burns on furniture, linens, towels or carpeting are detected; guests will be advised and charged for the damages. Electronic cigarettes cannot be used in public areas where there is a No Smoking policy in force.

You are welcome to bring your own beverages to the resort (including booze*!) 

You are also welcome to bring your own food, you'll just need to fill out a form when checking in at the Hard Rock letting them know what you have. 

*Please remember that you can only bring 1 liter of alcohol into the DR, so if you want anything more than that, you'd need to stop at a store in Punta Cana. 

Fixed lens camera photography is permitted everywhere on the resort, but please refrain from flash photography and use of tablets, iPads, selfie sticks, etc. at Woodstock Plaza. Use of audio recording devices, professional cameras (video or still), or detachable lens cameras will not be permitted at performances.

The Dominican Republic regulates several items that visitors can bring into the country. Up to 200 cigarettes (1 carton), 1 liter of alcohol, and gifts not exceeding $100(USD) can be brought into the country duty-free.

Find a Sixthman staff member and clue them in (we’re in the blue & white uniforms with our company logo on the front), or a member of our security team (they’re in the neon yellow shirts).

If you need medical help, just ask. All medical help provided is confidential.

Resort Tips

Resort Tips

At check-in, all Island Jam guests will recieve red wristbands (shown below) which is what you'll show to gain access to our programming! The only exception are minors under the age of 18. They will not get a red wristband, but rather a green wristband, which allows bartenders to differentiate them.

 

The Hard Rock is a large property, but most of the action takes place in the middle of the resort! Take a look at the map to fimiliarize yourself ahead of time and don't forget that tram runs 24 hours, arriving about every 10 minutes. Pick up locations are all over the property!

The resort has free WiFi that spans the entire property, so staying connected with other guests is easy! If you have an iPhone, you can use iMessage, but in order to keep up with your friends with Androids, we suggest downloading WhatsApp. It's a free WiFi based messaging service that can help keep you connected with all of your fellow Chillers!

No problem! Visit the Hard Rock Guest Services in the main Lobby. They're open 24 hours and can replace your keycard.

Ready to win big? We hope so because the Vegas-style casino at the Hard Rock is open 24/7! Please remember that alcoholic beverages in the Casino are not included as part of your vacation package, except while gambling.

There are a ton of pools at the resort for y'all to enjoy during the day! For your safety, all of the pools will close at 7:00pm except the Eclipse Pool, which will stay open until 10:00pm every night. 

Head to The Boulevard! There are tons of stores in there that have anything you might need!
