Did you miss Coachella? Didn't get enough? Or better yet, do you want to experience in a non-desert setting? Now, it is your chance to enjoy the music festival on a boat, a cruise ship called the Celebrity Silhouette to be exact. The same folks that put on that huge festival in the middle of a California desert has decided to re-create the experience (in a smaller portion) on the water called the S.S. Coachella.
The S.S. Coachella will set sail on two dates and two destinations. From December 16-19, S.S. Coachella will set sail from Ft. Lauderdale and head to the Bahamas. Then from December 19-23, the ship will set sail to Jamaica from Ft. Lauderdale. Sounds good, but wait who will be performing on these two 4 day cruises?
Healining this voyage will be the UK band Pulp and Hot Chip. Also performing will be Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy (DJ Set), Sleigh Bells, Warpaint, Simbian Mobile Disco, Z-Trip, DJ Harvey, El-P, Killer Mike, Black Lips, The Gaslamp Killer, Grimes, Cloud Nothings, Jason Bentley, The Rapture (DJ Set), Father John Misty, Tokimonsta, and Alf Alpha.
