It’s nice to see something different every now and again, and Ship Rocked definitely falls under the ‘different’ category.
What’s the hype? It is a music festival, taking place on a boat..
The organisers have described the event as ‘apart from being an epic vacation experience, ShipRocked is a celebration of the best live bands in rock music, regardless of generation or sub-genre’. This will be the tenth year for the unique festival experience, and as you can see from the poster, there are some insane bands on the bill.
The route for the ship is Galveston to Cozumel and Yucatán down Mexico way, and it is going to be a five day and night extravaganza. As well as the bands, there are various other things planned, including themed nights, comedians, drinking, gambling, more drinking, and more! (and a shed load more drinking).
Papa Roach are set for the headline spot, followed by bands including Motionless in White, I Prevail, Suicidal Tendencies, Skindred and many more.
