All Aboard The Barge To Hell
A whole bunch of metal dudes sipping daiquiris and working on their tans? Oh you better believe this is happening. The world’s most extreeeeme metal cruise, Barge To Hell, will set sail on Monday 3rd December from Miami, Florida and float on down to the crystal blue waters of Nassau, Bahamas before returning you back to civilisation on Friday 7th December. Not only will you be joined by 2,000 other metalheads, but you’ll be mingling with 40 killer bands and trying your hardest not to fanboy.
Each band will play two lives shows over two days, giving you 80 shows with unrestricted festival access. Considering you’ll be able to cool off in the Carribbean, we’re thinking this trumps the sweatfest that is the Aussie summer festival circuit.
With some of the cabin accommodation categories already sold out, you should get on this faster than a fat kid to a buffet. Ticket prices start at US$666 (like they’d be any other price) plus US$289 taxes and fees per person and include everything you could ever need: all on-board entertainment, non-alcoholic beverages, all meals at the dining room and 24-hour room service (jackpot!). It’s worth it for the feasts you could order at 3am alone. For more information, head on over to www.bargetohell.com and get in quick to secure your spot in the spa between Behemoth and Napalm Death.
Don’t forget to pack your favourite memorabilia alongside your sunnies and boardshorts as the bands will be doing organised meet & greets and signing everything you have to offer. Even your skin.
With Municipal Waste being the latest act to join the proceedings, they’ll settle in alongside Holy Moses and Paradise Lost with 15 more acts still to to be announced! Check out the line-up so far:
