The organisers of Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival have announced that they will be launching a Coachella cruise, which is due to set sail in December.

Headlined by Pulp, Hot Chip, Warpaint and Grimes, the floating festival, named the SS Coachella, will head to the Bahamas between December 16-19 and then to Jamaica December between 19-23. Prices start at £320 ($500).

Organisers are already touting a series of at-sea activities, including DJ tutorials and wine tastings hosted by former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy.

Speaking about the event, Yeasayer’s manager Jason Foster told the LA Times "It probably seems a little posh, and it's not the most punk rock thing you could probably do… This is a chance to play someplace we've never been. We've never tasted cruise ship food, and we've never played shuffleboard with our fans."

The Coachella voyage is the latest artist-based cruise to set sail after similar trips including Weezer’s Caribbean festival and R Kelly’s Love Letter Cruise.

Hot Chip ?
