The organisers of Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival
have announced that they will be launching a Coachella Cruise
, which is due to set sail in December.
Headlined by Pulp
, Hot Chip
, the luxury liner, called the S.S. Coachella
, will head to the Bahamas between December 16-19 and then to Jamaica December between 19-23. Prices start at £320 ($500).
Organisers are already touting a series of at-sea activities, including DJ tutorials and wine tastings hosted by former Lcd Soundsystem
frontman James Murphy
Speaking about the event, Yeasayer's
manager Jason Foster
told the LA Times: "It probably seems a little posh, and it's not the most punk rock thing you could probably doThis is a chance to play someplace we've never been. We've never tasted cruise ship food, and we've never played shuffleboard with our fans."
The Coachella voyage is the latest artist-based cruise to set sail after similar trips including Weezer's
Caribbean festival and R Kelly's
Love Letter Cruise.
