MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2013) - Korn will headline an all-star lineup aboard the first ever Rockaholica, a new four-night music festival cruise departing from Miami in the fall of 2014. Korn will be joined by Hoobastank and Fuel, with more bands to be announced. Rockaholica will feature more than ten bands and 30 performances throughout the cruise.
"We are excited to be headlining the first Rockaholica and look forward to spending quality time with our fans while cruising," said Jonathan Davis, lead singer of Korn.
The cruise sets sail on September 29, 2014 from Miami to Key West and Cozumel aboard the newly upgraded Carnival Ecstasy. Guests will enjoy all the luxuries and amenities the ship has to offer, including two resort-style poolside bars, eight lounges, a casino, an after-hours nightclub, a mini golf course, waterslides, 24-hour complimentary room service and more.
"Rockaholica is going to be a one-of-kind experience for fans unlike anything they've been a part of," said Steve Fischer, vice president of cruise development at Travel Holdings, Inc. "Onboard they will be fully immersed in the music and rock culture on an entire ship filled with only bands and fans. Not only will bands be performing, but also hosting multiple fan experiences throughout the cruise."
Cruise vacationers will not only get to see the performances, but have photo opportunities with their favorite bands and other exclusive events unheard of at a traditional concert venue. Fans can even let their inner rock star shine with a twist on traditional karaoke that lets fans sing alongside a live band.
Rockaholic's Anonymous, a worldwide band contest through Facebook, gives fans the ultimate control of the concert experience by voting the final acts onboard. Up-and-coming bands are encouraged to upload their best single to win an all-expense paid trip aboard and the chance of a lifetime to play in front of the entire ship.
