Coachella Announces Cruise Festival


Coachella is not landlocked anymore. It has been announced that the festival will take to the sea for two rounds this upcoming December via the S.S. Coachella, 122,000-ton ship that can host 2,800 attendees. The first leg will take place on December 16th-19th and travels to the Bahamas immediately followed by a trip to Jamaica on December 19th-23rd. Pulp, who, in a comeback year, performed at last April’s festival will headline along with Hot Chip, Sleigh Bells, El-P and Killer Mike, among others. Coachella purists need not fret about the need for ground, though, as the ship has a half acre of grass. Says Goldenvoice promoter Paul Tollet, “It wouldn’t be Coachella without grass.”
