What better way to stay warm this fall and winter than to hit up one of the world’s first boat dance music festivals, Groove Cruise? This year, for the first time, Groove Cruise will take over the iconic Queen Mary in Long Beach to kick off the adventure on October 5.

The fun ocean-based festival has set the standard for oceanic revelry for over a decade, featuring daytime pool parties, late-night open-air after-hours, peak time moments in the theater and Deep House Yoga on the top deck with 360 degree ocean views. Attendees can take advantage of an onboard waterpark, mini-golf, casino, multiple dining experiences, and spas.

Aside from all the fun activities, the main attraction features the music industry’s top DJs, such as 3LAU, Ferry Corsten, Green Velvet, Andrew Bayer, CJ Jeff, Autograf, Thomas Jack, Anjunabeats, No Requests, Bonnie X Clyde, and many more. These are just a few of the artists that have been announced in the phase one music lineup for Groove Cruise’s 2017 L.A. edition. The lineup features artists from a variety of genres from house and techno to trance.


The three-day cruise will traverse the blue seas of the Pacific, treating its attendees to some of the world’s foremost electronic music artists, while sailing South from L.A. to Ensenada, Mexico. The October sailing will include a live set from Knife Party and a Space Yacht showcase, along with many more.

Groove Cruise will sail with a deep crew of underground talent, including Greek tech-house phenomenon CJ Jeff, who will make his first appearance on the ship, Billy Kenny, Bot, Maximono, and a West Coast house master Doc Martin. There will be a late night Bon Voyage party, and Groove Cruise will deliver a Halloween-themed party on the reportedly haunted Queen Mary.

“Everyone is fascinated by the Queen Mary and its history. It’s going to be a once in a lifetime experience to have the GCFam stay on the ship, party onboard and take part in the Dark Harbor freaky festivities the night before we set sail to Mexico. And it’s conveniently across the parking lot from the cruise terminal we sail from the next day,” said Jason Beukema, CEO of Whet Travel.

Pre-sale tickets for this voyage are sold out. Staterooms open for public bookings on Feb 16th at 11am PST. Visit groovecruise.com for more info.
