Ash, Diiv, Bleached and The Orwells will also play the boat-based bash
Cat Power, The Cribs and Palma Violets have all been confirmed to play the second ever Weezer Cruise, which is set to take place next year.
The festival will take place from February 13-17, 2014 and sail from Jacksonville in Florida to the Bahamas. Weezer themselves will headline the event, and there will also be performances from Ash, Diiv, Bleached, Holy Fuck, The Orwells and Toro Y Moi.
Weezer will play three sets during the cruise – including a “private island beach party and concert” – and the band will take part in a Q&A session onboard as well as an “interactive Weezer game show” and photo sessions with fans. For more information, visit: theweezercruise.com.
On the inaugural Weezer Cruise in 2012, Weezer renewed couples’ wedding vows. The band showcased their albums ‘Pinkerton’ and ‘The Blue Album’ in their entirety on the nautical jaunt, which sailed from Miami to Mexico and also featured Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh, Yuck, Wavves. Other activities on the first cruise included drummer Pat Wilson holding a shuffleboard tournament and a midnight movie party hosted by guitarist Brian Bell.
Weezer’s last album, ‘Death To False Metal’, was released in 2010. It was the ninth studio album of their career so far.
