Boaty Weekender festival to launch next summer

This new sea-based festival, never before seen in Europe, is to launch next summer.

Sixthman, a company that lead the line of festivals at sea, have hosted similar events out in the States, but they are now coming to shores near you (don’ rock the boat, baby!)

It sounds to us like the perfect blend of summer holiday and festival, offered by European big-hitters such as Benicassim and Outlook….yet this time, you will actually be out on the waves.

The thought of sipping an ice cold beer whilst watching the sun tuck itself under the horizon sounds nothing sort of dreamy.

The best thing is this first festival style cruise is to be headed up by none other than Belle & Sebastian, with their brilliantly named ‘Boaty Weekender’, a play on their legendary 90s Bowlie Weekender.

The trip takes in some of Europe’s best spots, from beaut Barcelona down to Sardinia in August 2019. The four day trip will take in performances from the legendary band as well as Q&A sessions.

Other names are soon to be announced on the bill, as well as themed shindigs, group activities and much, much more.

Sixthman have sent many a luxury-seeking festival fan home happy out in the US already with KISS, Kid Rock, John Mayer, Paramore, Joe Bonamassa, Lynyrd Skynyrd some of the acts they have invited to take to the seas.

The Belle & Sebastian cruise is the first European cruise by the company; stay tuned for further news on what promises to be an unforgettable summer treat, full of sunburn, COLD beer and unreal setting.

Perhaps you have that one friend you have always wanted to share the festival experience with, but hey opt for surround sound and a sofa to hear the music for fear of mud?

This could be the one to break them in to the festival spirit!
