After six years since the last West Coast sailing, Groove Cruise prepares to make a colossal comeback with ‘The Ascension’ sailing from Los Angeles to Cabo San Lucas on Wednesday, October 19 – Monday, October 24.
Hosted upon the newly-renovated Norwegian Jewel, Groove Cruise Cabo will offer a truly immersive festival experience featuring five days filled with various themes, activities, and some of the finest acts in electronic music.
Groove Cruise veteran Green Velvet has just been announced as an additional headliner to join the likes of Dirtybird wizard Claude Vonstroke, underground tastemakers Desert Hearts, British trance icon Gareth Emery, and melodic bass maverick Said The Sky. Rounding out the roster, Groove Cruise has also enlisted ACRAZE, Blond:ish, Joel Corry, and MiTiS for direct support on the upcoming Cabo sailing.
Providing an all-encompassing experience for attendees, Groove Cruise has revealed the daily themes for the upcoming sailing to Cabo. The sailing will host both day and night themes daily, offering ten curated costume parties across the 120 hours on board to kick off the Halloween season.
Some of the 2022 themes will include a formal-themed ‘Burlesque & Bowties’ affair, fairytale and sci-fi inspired ‘Mythology & Moonlight’, a nod to Halloween and Day of the Dead with ‘Rave to the Grave’, and more.
In addition to the daily themes, fans can also expect a plethora of scheduled activities aboard the Norwegian Jewel. Catering to a vast audience, Groove Cruise will have an activity suited for everybody and all of the activities will feature a special appearance from one of the artists on the lineup. From artist-hosted panels and master classes to spicy food challenges and whiskey tastings, the activity programming is another reason Groove Cruise has created such a loyal fanbase over the years.
Groove Cruise’s 2022 programming will also feature an exclusive destination event on Friday, October 21 at the Taboo Beach Club and Confessions Skybar in Cabo San Lucas. Attendees will divulge into the beachside location as they enjoy two stages of music and performers from 12:00pm to 9:00pm. The epic adventure in Cabo San Lucas will allow fans to enjoy the idyllic paradise while still enjoying the ethos of Groove Cruise.
In an effort to connect with the communities in Cabo, Whet Travel will be launching one of their biggest initiatives to date with the Whet Foundation. The foundation will visit two facilities in Cabo San Lucas, Solmar Foundation and Heart4Cabo, to serve breakfast and interact with the children through live art, games, music and costumes.
Whet Foundation will raise money and collect donations for this initiative to give back to the communities of Cabo. Additional outreach initiatives will include teaming up with When The Music Stops and Ninobuni to host various mental health awareness panels.
Curating a festival experience that remains truly unmatched, Groove Cruise’s impressive 34 sailings and dedicated fan base continue to make the festival a highly-sought-after event year after year. Groove Cruise’s return to the West Coast after six years promises to further evolve the legacy with the carefully curated lineup and programming.
