Bruise Cruise Festival announces its second year, happening Friday February 10-13, 2012. Tickets on sale here.
After a successful first year, Bruise Cruise Festival is back for round two. This year’s lineup will feature an even crazier spectacle of today’s best rock ‘n’ roll talent, including King Khan & The Shrines, The Soft Pack, The Dirtbombs, and America’s funnyman Neil Hamburger. Coming back for another blast of sun-soaked fun will be Bruise Cruise favorites Thee Oh Sees, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, and New York’s infamous soul DJ, Mr. Jonathan Toubin.
Bruise Cruise offers true music fans a chance to witness their favorite bands in a unique, intimate, rock festival atmosphere while being whisked away to exotic locales on board a cruise ship for three days of tropical mayhem. Only 500 guests will be able to attend BC2.
Amazing goings-on from the first cruise include: One successful marriage proposal during a Ty Segall set, one couple meeting, falling in love, and getting engaged, one Black Lips video being made, and two documentaries being filmed.
Last year’s crew of “Bruisers” featured an interesting array of top music fans, including John Norris (MTV/Noisevox), Terre T (WFMU), Pro-Surfers Alek Parker & Dylan Graves, and Ben Blackwell & Ko Melina of The Dirtbombs.
New York Magazine, NME, Spin, Filter, VBS.tv, Noisevox, Huffington Post, Brooklyn Vegan, Broward Palm Beach New Times, Jalouse (France), Flavorpill, and Grooveshark were all on board to witness the inaugural high-seas spectacle.
Bruise Cruise 2 will include multiple concerts at sea, a party in Nassau, Bahamas, open-bar cocktail hours, a soul dance-off with cash prizes, comedy shows, lectures, workshops, and a puppetry breakfast hour with Miss Pussycat. Amenities featured on board include: A casino, resort-style pools, hot tubs, miniature golf, water parks, fine dining, all-you-can-eat buffets, and more. The price of one ticket will cover all entertainment, lodging, meals, limited-edition vinyl, Bruiser gift bags, and even some drinks.
