S.S. Coachella LEAD

Like the idea of Coachella but not a fan of all that dry, dusty land? Great news (as long as you aren’t prone to seasickness): Goldenvoice, producers of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, have announced the inaugural voyage of S.S. Coachella — two separate sea voyages with the same great line up!

Passengers on the S.S. Coachella can choose from two itineraries on the luxury cruise ship Celebrity Silhouette:

– Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas, December 16-19, 2012
– Fort Lauderdale to Jamaica, December 19-23, 2012

Pulp will headline with performances by Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy (DJ Set), Sleigh Bells, Simian Mobile Disco, Z-Trip, !!!, Warpaint, DJ Harvey, El-P, Killer Mike, and more. Additional planned activities and surprises are promised to unfold during the journey, including live DJ tutorials (with *hint hint* “highly trained professionals”), wine tastings, D.I.Y. arts n’ crafts workshops, bar crawls, and more. Hey, as long as those “surprises” don’t include any see-if-you-can-hold-your-breath-underwater-longer-than-this-next-DJ-breakdown nonsense, it sounds like a great time to me!

The Celebrity Silhouette is the newest ship in the world-renowned Solstice class, offering 12 dining venues, 9 bars, multiple live music settings, spa and an impressive pool deck. Reservations for S.S. Coachella can be made beginning this Saturday, July 21st, at 10:00am PDT with prices starting at $500 per person. Payment plans are also available with only $250 due at time of purchase.
