After a tease about something coming today, Coachella announced their S.S. Coachella music cruise featuring the recently reunited Pulp as the headliners, with Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, and James Murphy doing a DJ set. Some of the other bands playing are the Black Lips, !!!, and most importantly, 2 of my not-so-secret band crushes…the excellent Warpaint as well as the excellent Grimes!
Leaving from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, there will be 2 trips, one to the Bahamas that runs from 12/16/12-12/19/12 and one to Jamaica from 12/19/12-12/23/12. Although tickets are fairly pricey at $500 – $700 per person for the cheapest option if you have 3 other people who want to share a room with you, and depending on if you want to go to the Bahamas or Jamaica. I would guess the average is going to be closer to $750-$1200 per person for a 2 person room if you want a window.
There is a payment plan where you can pay off the trip in 4 installments. Also, factor in the airfare from wherever you live to Florida too. As for me, since I recently got a passport, I’d love to go, but can’t seem to find anyone who would actually be interested in doing this trip, and that makes me a sad panda.
