Coachella Cruise

The people behind Coachella have some sort of big announcement planned for this evening, and word around the virtual campfire is that they’re going to announce a Coachella-themed cruise.

According to the Los Angeles Times, sources say that the cruise will start out in Florida, and that it could very well launch as soon as December. If that’s true, the cruise in question would join an increasing number of music-themed cruises, some of which look seriously fun. There’s no word on prices yet, though it’s probably safe to assume that this will be an expensive ticket. There’s also no news on a lineup, which raises the question: Who would you pay serious amounts of money to see on a Coachella cruise?

UPDATE: It’s on! Here’s the lineup.

  1. Just going to sit here with a cup of coffee and watch this comments section unfold.

  2. Cruisechella seems like a good way to break the inevitable staleness of major destination festivals after about a solid decade of them being a regular thing. I’m down.

  4. Hmm. This raises a question which would be a bit of an elephant in the room no one will mention: HOW will people get their “candy” onto a cruise ship that travels in international waters? Never been on a cruise, but my understanding is that they have security measures not that different from the TSA.

    Of course, I am sure everyone here is too mature and responsible to worry about these sort of things…..

  5. I guess the only tickets available for this cruise would be for… COACH-ella?

  6. Great, except cruise ships produce tons of waste to the oceans and the air and their anchors damage coral reefs.

  7. WHY THE CORPORATE FAT CATS GOTTA STEAL 311′S CRUISE THUNDER LIKE THIS

  8. Coachella Music & Arts Festival, names after the beautiful Coachella valley in Indio, CA.

    Coachella Cruise, named after the… Post in Florida? Where we will be leaving? To go on the Coachella Ocean? And party on the Coachella islands?

    You know whatever. Maybe a Cruise Festival will finally awaken David Bowie from hibernation? I mean, we are flinging rumors, correct?

  9. THIS JUST IN:

    BOWIE TO HEADLINE COACHELLA CRUISE, PERFORM ALL OF EVERY ALBUM FRONT TO BACK, IN ORDER, WHILE THROWING HUNDRED DOLLAR BILLS INTO THE AUDIENCE

  10. While aboard the Coachella Cruise I would want to hear Gordon Lightfoot’s “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” Celine Dion’s “My Heart WIll Go On,” and basically any other song about a boat sinking.

  11. hmmm.. could it possibly have something to do about the rumor that there would also be a coachella in Brazil?

  12. This is clearly being done in the interest of getting more Kickball Katy boobage.

    …which I fully support.

  13. Celine Dion. lol

  14. hmmm. I have a hard time believing any cruise company will pack their decks with people who think they can fly… seems like fun rumor though!

  15. Because nothing spells fun like being overcrowded in a small tin capsule in the middle of the ocean, hours away from any sort of land!

  16. I’d be interested if it was styld.by Mayer Hawthorne!

  17. Frank oc-

    Ahh nevermind, that ones a given.

  18. As cool as this sounds, being stuck on a boat for a week with the Coachella crowd would be tough.

  19. Tom and Katie are back together?? And they’re having a kid named Coachella?!?!
