How to join Lionel Richie for a musical weekend in the Bahamas

What You Need To Know Lionel Richie

“Hello.” Is it a vacation you’re looking for? If so, you can “Sail On” to the Bahamas at the end of the year and hang out with music icon Lionel Richie and friends.

“Just for You,” Paradise Island at the Atlantis resort is holding Lionel Richie’s Dancing on the Sand music festival, presented by Vibee.

Your “Endless Love” for the “American Idol” judge will be rewarded during your four days and three nights at the resort. In addition parties and concerts, each event package includes a conversation with Richie where he will share stories from his career.

The Cove Platinum package, which is the most expensive, includes the closest seating at the concerts, plus a meet and greet photo opportunity with Richie — “Truly” a once in a lifetime event.

You might not be able to party “All Night Long,” but there will be a wide range of activities and VIP options, from exclusive pool parties to bar crawls to spa packages and more.

The first night of the event, for example, includes a “Sunset Soirée” pool party at the Baths Colonnade, where you can watch the Caribbean sunset and dance the night away. But please, no “Dancing on the Ceiling.”

The first concert of the weekend will feature Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Vanessa Carlton and Jake Wesley Rogers, all picked by Richie for the event, according to the website.

They “Don’t Stop the Music” there, however. On Saturday night, Richie, Sheryl Crow and Megan Moroney will take the stage.

Now, if you’re a “Penny Lover,” you might want to opt for the Coral Jet Setter package, which includes accommodations at the Coral Tower, entrance to parties and both concerts, and the coversation with Richie. With taxes and fees, this package will set you back just $3,883.67.

You can check out all your options on the event’s website.

Dancing on the Sand will be November 30 to December 3 at the Atlantis Bahamas.
