WHO WE ARE
The most exclusive and intimate music event you will ever experience!
Sensing the time was right, in 2011 we made a conscious decision to channel resources into creating really cool, totally unique, exclusive experiences.
Perfect Wave’s Global Marketing Manager Ben Horvath and CEO Jamie Gray devised a completely original and unique offering – Music In Paradise.
Music in Paradise fuses a love of the ocean, and music, in one unique offering.
Days are spent playing in tropical crystal clear waters at the best resorts in Australia, Fiji, Maldives or Indonesia, and as the sun sets, music legends perform live with the crashing waves as percussion.
Hang out with your favourite music artist while holidaying in paradise. It doesn’t get any better than this.
What You Loved
Best week ever.
Will forever remember the epic week with #birdsoftokyo in the Maldives
Fantastic relaxing holiday
Thank you so much for giving us an amazing holiday filled in a tropical location with the best musicians, all acts were so memorable and loads of fun.
Wow- what a week
What an incredible week!
My sister had always listened to Delta’s music but I hadn’t. When she suggested it, I had always wanted to visit the Maldives so it was a done deal.
By the end of the week, I was the one convincing my sister to sign up for next year!!
It was the most amazing week. Delta is such a down to earth, lovely person and it was wonderful seeing her going off for her trips and making the most of the incredible island.
Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed.
Pure Heaven and a week of awesomeness
WOW! What a fantastic and special trip. The entire holiday was pure joy, magical and heavenly. From the relaxing massages and daily activities we were able to fit in everything we wanted. The accommodation were superb and so comfortable. The best part of course was the music. How good are The Living End, Tex Perkins and Matt Walker!!!! Rocking on the sands of this beautiful island just made it surreal. Loved every moment. Never need to drink again though. HA HA – cocktails were just the best. Sarooj was the best barman ever. The entire trip was worth every cent.
Best time of my life.
Where to start? Great music, beautiful food and weather. And best of all the incredible staff at Kandooma Maldives. Music in paradise put on the best gig I will probably ever go to.
Music In Paradise Rocks
From the ease of booking to turning up at Kandooma the Music in Paradise crew where always there for help. Such an incredible experience seeing the Living End and Tex Perkins, Matt Walker. My trip is something my partner and I will never forget. If your a music lover and want an intimate experience Music In Paradise will definitely look after you!
Best week ever
Music in Paradise management was well organised, informative and helpful.
Kandooma was awesome place with great adventures, best snorkeling ever, and great stafff that were very friendly and helpful as well as efficient.
Delta was truly amazing performances in perfect settings and was very approachable and friendly throughout resort all week.
Girls' trip 2023
What began as a spontaneous adventure, ended with memories we’ll have forever.
It was truly paradise.
And then all of the stars in the sky aligned and a dream came true.
A Truly Magical Holiday
If you’re even thinking about joining this event and are able to, do it!!!
We had the most enchanting time on an island paradise with the MIP team, Delta, and her incredible band. The Kandooma resort staff are also incredibly friendly and helpful, we LOVED our beach house stay at this resort!
Diving, snorkeling, surfing and lounging ocean or poolside with new friends by day, and fun events each night, made this trip an unforgettable getaway.
Meeting Delta and her bandmates was an absolute dream come true! The live performances felt like something out of a movie, it was hard to believe it was real life! If you’ve ever wanted to experience the magic of the Maldives, and you love Delta’s music, this is IT!!!
Being a huge fan of Delta Goodrem for more than twenty years this week in the Maldives was a dream come true. It truly was a personal and up-close experience, not only with Delta but with fellow fans as well. The organisation by Music in Paradise was perfect.
A week in paradise
Highly recommend doing one of music in paradises events whether it’s in the Maldives or Whitsundays it’s going to be an amazing time! We just spent a whole week in an amazing place with friends and live music! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to go. MIP team were so nice and the resort staff so friendly and they’re always saying hi or good morning. Delta and her band amazing as always and having these very intimate shows was so fun. we can’t wait to experience this all over again next year!!
What a week!!!!!!
I had the most incredible week in the Maldives for the Delta Goodrem event. The Music in Paradise team were very helpful and knowledgeable and answered any questions we had prior to leaving and while on the trip. Holiday Inn Kandooma is a lovely resort island. There are many water based activities to do and the massages/facials at the spa are amazing. An amazing week where you could really switch off for a week and be amongst like minded people who are all there for the same reason – Delta. The musical events were well spread out amongst the week. Delta and her team were incredible and always said “Hi, how are you?” when we saw them around the island. The first two shows of the week were about an hour in length and the third was a bit longer. The resort staff are very friendly and always willing to help out. Can’t wait to come back next year and experience it all over again.
Unbelievably real and memorable
A trip of a lifetime with so many magical moments, photos that look like they are straight off postcards, music meets the sea with The most talented musician songwriter and performer hearing delta’s voice sore in the most magical and unexplainable way.
Thank you for an absolutely fabulous time in the Maldives.
Delta and her team were incredible.
Very big thank you for the most magical week in paradise!
I didn’t really know what to expect, but the past week has been more than I could ever have imagined. See you next year 😱😱
Incredible - trip of a lifetime.
Had the most incredible week in the Maldives. Music in Paradise team were incredible, so helpful and knowledgeable and Delta was more of a legend that I could have imagined.
A trip that should have been once in a lifetime has been re-booked for next year because it was AMAZING.
In June 2014, Perfect Travel Group launched the inaugural Music In Paradise series featuring Donavon Frankenreiter at Kandooma Resort, Maldives.
In June 2015 Pete Murray and Matt Smith performed. That September, Tex Perkins and Murray Patterson played 4 incredible gigs in 7 days, also at Kandooma.
Since then, Music in Paradise expanded to Bali, Fiji and Australia. Ocean Alley and Phil Jamieson at S-Resorts Hidden Valley, Jimmy Barnes at Kandooma as well as Daydream Island in the Whitsundays.
May 2022 was our biggest one yet with Daryl Braithwaite, Richard Clapton, Ian Moss, Troy Cassar Daley, The Living End, Phil Jamieson, Diesel and The Black Sorrows – massive two weeks of amazing music and unforgettable memories for everyone involved.
In 2023 Music in Paradise hosted Xavier Rudd, Delta Goodrem and Birds of Tokyo in Maldives, and Jimmy Barnes with Kate Ceberano, Ian Moss, The Black Sorrows and Mahalia Barnes in Whitsundays.
The question on everyone’s lips after all these MUSIC IN PARADISE gigs always is: How could you ever go to a standard gig ever again?
In 2024, you can look forward to Delta’s return to Maldives, Xavier Rudd in Fiji, The Living End with You Am I in Maldives and Jimmy Barnes, Richard Clapton, The Black Sorrows, Brooke McClymont & Adam Eckersley and Mahalia Barnes & The Soul Mates in beautiful Snowy Mountains, Australia.
Sitting literally metres from the stage on a bean bag, cocktail or beer in hand, partner, friends or family nearby, socializing with the musos and like-minded fans is unbeatable!
The most exclusive and intimate music events you will ever experience!
The feeling of value beyond the actual resort stay or a live music gig is unsurpassed in the marketplace.
Where will Music In Paradise end up?
No doubt, the sky is the limit!
In 2023, we are hosting Delta Goodrem, Xavier Rudd, Birds of Tokyo, Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss and Richard Clapton, among others.
The concept is clearly much loved by both performers and most importantly fans.
We will continue to guarantee that Perfect Travel will continue to cap numbers that come along for the ride, ensuring Music In Paradise remains a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
