The World's premiere floating music festival, Groove Cruise, returns to set sail out of Los Angeles this Fall - and they're bringing quite the all star cast! Today, they've unveiled their complete music lineup for your listening pleasure as we sail from Catalina Island to Ensenada, Mexico from October 23-26. Get your Trance arms ready, because FERRY CORSTEN has just been unveiled as this year's special guest, while MENNO DE JONG, KYAU & ALBERT, Sandro Silva & Alvaro, and ANTONIO GIACCA have all been added to the lineup.
Highlighted by an eclectic musical lineup and gorgeous party destinations, the Groove Cruise caters to it's dedicated fanbase with a wild weekend you won't soon forget. During the day, hit up a private beach party and enjoy the sunset with your new friends, but don't forget about your ship's stellar after hours lineups and sunrise sessions for the professional party brigade. Legendary mainstage acts like PAUL OAKENFOLD, CAZZETTE, DIRTY SOUTH, SIDNEY SAMSON, and VINAI, plus special guest Ferry Corsten, will be joined by after-hour captains of the deep KEVIN SAUNDERSON, GUY GERBER and DANTIEZ SAUNDERSON, creating a musical crew that spans the electronic spectrum.
In addition to musical programming, Groove Cruise is renowned for its unique themed experiences, which sees the entire ship play dress up. This October will be no different, as events include 50 Shades Of Disney, Naughty Nautical, Neon Candyland, Down to Fiesta, and Halloween On The High Seas.
