|No more of this desert shit! We're going on a cruise!|
There will be a three-day cruise leaving for the Bahamas on December 16 and a four-day voyage setting sail on December 19 to Jamaica. Miami New Times first reported on the S.S. Coachella, and word from the NY Times is that acts including Pulp, Hot Chip, Girl Talk, Yeasayer, Sleigh Bells, and James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem will be providing onboard entertainment, as will Sleigh Bells and Black Lips, among others (see after the jump).
Further, the Times notes:
Paul Tollett, [Coachella promoter Goldenvoice's] president, described as the perfect vessel: the Celebrity Silhouette, a 1,000-foot, 122,000-ton ship with room for 2,800 fans, cabana-style alcoves and a small theater that Mr. Tollett called a "mini-Royal Albert Hall."That's quite a claim! We'll keep you updated on all the fancy details.
