Go-karting at sea? Check. Playing laser-tag 16 decks above the ocean? Also, check. How about 96 hours of non-stop music from more than 70 DJs while you travel from Miami to an exclusive private island in the Bahamas only accessible to cruise guests? All of this, and more, is possible on the 2024 Groove Cruise, that is if you have the money to shell out on what, for some EDM heads, could be the experience of a lifetime.
For the rave’s 20th anniversary, organizers pulled out all the stops: Tiesto, Diplo and John Summit will headline, and joining them are an entourage of well-experienced electronic dance sailors who have even dropped anchor in Tomorrowland, including Gabriel & Dresden, LP Giobbi and Joel Corry. Disco Lines is also playing, bringing a pop-like vibe, best showcased by his upbeat, groovy mixing chops in “Baby Girl” and “MDMA”.
The Groove Cruise is not for those with weak stomachs — or weak wardrobes. Every day and night, Wednesday to Saturday, has a tailored theme. This year’s Wednesday day theme, for instance, tells revelers to wear “something that represents” their country. Virgins, having apparently formed their own state government, are meant to wear white. Friday night, on the other hand, is “50 Shades of Nintendo.” In other words, it’s ComicCon for the rich. If you’re stressed about what to wear, there’s a handy Pinterest board linked for sexy inspo.
While this year’s bacchanal sold out a whole nine months before the ship will set sail, you can still get on the waitlist for this year and start plotting to get next year’s tickets.
