First year attendees called Bruise Cruise “ATP on water,” “Rock ’n’ roll summer camp,” and “The best vacation I’ve ever taken.” In only 72 hours at sea, garage rockers went wild, ten thousand cocktails flowed, one bass guitar launched into the Atlantic, and everyone became family. Countless other memories sailed into oblivion…
The inaugural Bruise Cruise featured the who’s-who of today’s rock ’n’ roll scene: The Black Lips, Vivian Girls, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Surfer Blood, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Jacuzzi Boys, Turbo Fruits, Ian Svenonius, and DJ Mr. Jonathan Toubin.
Life On Board
In between concerts, Bruisers could mingle on the Lido Deck while soaking in the sun and enjoying their favorite cocktail. Whether it was a quick dip in the hot tub, cannonball in the pool, a game of put-put on the green, a hand of cards in the casino, or a leisurely stroll down the Imagination Promenade, there was fun [...]
A big “Thank you!” to all of the Bruise Cruise Crew. The festival would not have been possible without this awesome staff. We can’t wait until next year.
