Eighteen…the age of excitement and an adventurous outlook for the future. The Rock Boat, Sixthman’s flagship music festival at sea, will celebrate its 18th birthday January 30 – February 4, 2018 aboard Norwegian Pearl for 5 rockin’ nights.
Barenaked Ladies will make a triumphant return to The Rock Boat XVIII after a three-year hiatus. They’ll be joined at the lead of the lineup by NEEDTOBREATHE, Will Hoge, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, Cowboy Mouth and host Sister Hazel. In addition, Colony House, Wild Adriatic, Welshly Arms, MELODIME, Larkin Poe and more will join for the 18th annual sailing. For the first time, NEEDTOBREATHE, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, Colony House & Welshly Arms will present their popular “Tour De Compadres” in a whole new setting – at sea!
“The Rock Boat is a living manifestation of what life should be about,” says Sister Hazel’s Ken Block. “There is a spirit of community and camaraderie that I’ve never seen anywhere else. Once you’ve been in once, you’re part of the family forever.”
One of the first-ever themed cruises of its kind, The Rock Boat XVIII returns to The Big Easy for the first time since 2012. Famous for its anything-goes atmosphere, spur-of-the moment collaborations and performances that often last from sunset to sunrise, The Rock Boat XVIII will feature more than five stages and offers guests the opportunity to vacation alongside their favorite artists and discover new favorites along the way.
Hitting the seas from January 30 – February 4, 2018, the 18th anniversary sailing will gather more than 2,500 music lovers for an open-water musical odyssey that includes non-stop performances and collaborations from dozens of artists, theme nights, fan-band activities and tropical memory making between New Orleans, Louisiana and Caribbean paradises Progreso and Cozumel, Mexico.
With 13 decks of dining and entertainment, Norwegian Pearl is a destination of her own, offering guests access to 13 bars and lounges, 19 dining experiences, one outdoor pool, hot tubs, and an award-winning spa. Guests can also shoot some hoops on the sports court, bowl a few frames at the onboard bowling alley or try and tempt lady luck at the Pearl Club Casino. Plus, Rock Boaters can enjoy day-long excursions to the Caribbean paradises of Progreso and Cozumel, Mexico, where fantastic fishing, snorkeling and boating opportunities await adventurous travelers.
