I came home from Groove Cruise, as I have the past few times, tired and wanting to go back for more. The biannual cruise, the longest running of its kind, sailed from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas over Halloween weekend, hardly your typical Halloween EDM festival. And yet in spite of all the major festivals across the nation hoarding their own selection of exquisite artists, Groove Cruise – a venue which literally prevents artists from leaving – managed to attract its own cadre of impressive performers.Read full article
Groove Cruise. Where do I begin!? If you’ve been on this wondrous floating adult playground before then you understand that question. If you’re reading this as a potential new captain, or purchased your ticket already and about to sail the seas of pure paradise for the first time I have advice for you. When you come back you classify people as one of two things: Groove Cruise Virgin or Veteran. Know now that no matter what amount of partying you think you’ve done in your life or festivals you’ve gone to, this coming from a self-proclaimed professional who has attended over 35 music festivals in the last 3 years alone, you’re most likely not prepared for about 96 hours of what awaits.Read full article
Two Wednesdays ago, I set sail out of Miami for the 11th anniversary of a floating, 96-hour non-stop dance music festival cultural experience called Groove Cruise, and where EDC, Coachella, years of WMC and hundreds of local dance events before held loving memories, my idea of “music festival” has forever been transformed. (Forget my idea of cruises.)Read full article
While its sold-out spin-off to Cabo San Lucas just came to an end, Groove Cruise isn’t wasting anytime preparing for its flagship edition in Miami.

The sold-out, floating music festival, Groove Cruise has become a hugely successful and EDM fan favorite. Combining the luxury and travel of a cruise ship with the pulsating, all-night party of an electronic music festival, it is no wonder that this event sold out so quickly. Setting sail from Long Beach on October 23rd and returning on October 26th, the cruise will make stops at Catalina Island and Mexico, offering a spring break party in the heart of autumn.

When the sold-out Groove Cruise sets sail from Los Angeles to Mexico Oct. 23 to 26, it will mark Whet Travel founder Jason Beukema's 11th dance-music-themed excursion. It also is his biggest yet, accommodating nearly 3,000 fans, each of whom paid a minimum of $1,000 and as much as $25,000 for four days of nonstop beats (by such artists as Paul Oakenfold, Cazzette and Dirty South) on the wide open sea. The upshot? Everyone feels like a VIP, says Beukema, 39, who in 2004 began carving out a sector that now includes competitors like Diplo's Mad Decent Boat Party and HARD Events' Holy Ship.Read full article
