If the music festival at sea is as popular the music festival is in the desert, the tickets will go fast. Tickets for the 2013 Coachella desert music festival sold out the day they went on sale last May.
In order to make sure you get tickets, Los Angeles-based promoter Goldenvoice recommends creating a ticket purchase account ahead of the 10 a.m. on-sale time.
You should also decide ahead of time if you’d like to go on the three-day trip to the Bahamas or the four-day trip to Jamaica. Both voyages have the same line-up.
The hardest part is deciding how much dough you’re willing to spend. The cheapest rooms — which are for four guests — are $500 per person for the entire cruise. And the prices go up from there, all the way to $9,000 a person for a “Sky Suite.”
Prices include lodging, food and, of course, rock ‘n roll. The cost of alcohol is not included, even though the ship has been dubbed the “Booze Cruise.”
The bands booked for S.S. Coachella are:
Pulp, Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy (DJ Set), Sleigh Bells, Simian Mobile Disco, Z Trip, !!!, Warpaint, 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.
