The Outlaw Country Cruise is back on the high seas in 2018, celebrating its third annual Caribbean voyage after boasting sold-out festivals its first two years. Presented by Sixthman and Steven Van Zandt’s Renegade Circus, the party sets sail January 22 – 26, 2018 hosting over 2,500 fans of Outlaw Country, Southern rock, honky-tonk and Americana music in the lap of luxury between New Orleans and Costa Maya, Mexico. It is sure to be one helluva boat ride with over four nights of rebels, renegades, and rabble-rousers making lifelong music memories aboard Norwegian Pearl. For those who want to start the party a night early, guests are invited to join the Official Outlaw Country Cruise Pre-Party aboard Norwegian Pearl. It’ll be an extra night of great music, raucous activities, and the chance to relax at the bars and restaurants on board while it stays docked in New Orleans until the cruise kicks off the following day.
The stacked lineup for 2018 leads with Blackberry Smoke, The Mavericks, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle & The Dukes, and Rodney Crowell all bringing their sounds to the high seas. If that weren’t enough to wet your whistle, support comes from a wide array of living legends and burgeoning acts including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Nikki Lane, and Junior Brown along with Dale Watson And His Lone Stars, Kinky Friedman, Jason & The Scorchers, and Elizabeth Cook — with many more still to come!
