Coachella in the Caribbean

ss-coachella-cruise-2012-feature

Grab your bikinis and boardies because Coachella is going out to sea. That’s right, just when you thought the music festival couldn’t get any better, along comes the S.S. Coachella – a Caribbean-bound cruise ship that’s heading to the Bahamas and Jamaica.

Setting sail just before Christmas, the floating music festival features a pretty killer line-up of bands with what looks like a baby version of this year’s Coachella. Pulp, Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy, Sleigh Bells and Grimes will all be onboard when the S.S. Coachella sets sail on its maiden voyage.

The cruise ship itself looks pretty rad. With room for almost 3,000 festival-goers, the S.S. Coachella has cabana-style alcoves for more intimate gatherings and all your usual necessities like restaurants, bars, lounges and pools. Prices start at $500 a person and climb all the way up to $9,000 a person for a luxurious cabin with a deck.

Cabins go on sale this Saturday at 10am in the states (very early Sunday morning if you’re in Australia) and can be reserved with a $250 deposit.

eSSentials: striped shirt, white shorts, boat shoes, captains hat or douche alternative.

Follow the S.S. Coachella on Facebook for updates.
