Goldenvoice, the promotions company behind Coachella, is looking to bring the enormous festival to the water. Speaking with the LA Times, sources said Goldenvoice “has been quietly organizing a music-themed cruise that would sail out of Florida and further expand the Coachella brand.” An official statement, though, is likely coming at 6PM PDT today.
Festival organizers have reportedly sought out two acts–Cleveland quartet Cloud Nothings and mashup DJ Girl Talk–and others to kick off the new extension of the ever-expanding Coachella. The cruise will reportedly have two legs, one of which ends in Jamaica, and is slated to make its debut in December.
Festival co-founder and Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett told Billboard this earlier: “Generally, I don’t want to use the Coachella name for other events, but I’m open minded. In 13 years nothing has intrigued us yet.”
