It was announced, and highly circulated around the internet, that Coachella and Goldenvoice have put together a steller little concert that’ll take place on a cruise ship (yes, like Holy Ship!), called the S.S. Coachella. The music cruise will be taking place this winter, venturing to the Bahamas December 16-19 and Jamaica December 19-23. The line-up, although a mere fraction of the size of a Day 1 line-up in Indio, still packs a sweet little punch with a an eclectic palette of music including legendary rockers Pulp, disco/dance music guru James Murphy, some dubstep/basshead/hip-hop beats from producer Tokimonsta, the much beloved electronic/industrial musician Grimes, and plenty of beats to keep your bikini’d ass shaking courtesy of Sleigh Bells, !!!, DJ Harvey, Girl Talk and many more. Despite the excitement at the thought of participating in this raucous musical vacation, it’s hard to fathom just how quickly tickets will sell out, let alone how expensive they’ll be. If you happen to pick one up, however, my birthday’s in December so feel free to gift it to me (please/thank you). Tickets go on sale at 10 am PDT this Saturday, July 21, 2012 HERE.
