Today, Groove Cruise, the World’s First and Foremost Floating Dance Music Festival, has announced their phase 1 music lineup for its 2017 LA edition. For three days Groove Cruise will traverse the blue seas of the Pacific, treating it’s GCFam to some of the world’s foremost electronic music artists, while sailing South from LA to Ensenada, Mexico.

For over a decade Groove Cruise has set the standard for oceanic revelry, and the forthcoming California sailing will deliver private cliff top estate parties, sun-soaked daytime pool parties, late-night open-air after-hours, peak time moments in the theater and Deep House Yoga on the top deck with 360 ocean views. Attendees can lavish in the amenities that the Inspiration offers with an onboard waterpark, mini-golf, casino, multiple dining experiences, and spas.

Groove Cruise has curated a lineup that focuses on grooves, from house and techno to trance, the October sailing will include the iconic, globally ranked Ferry Corsten, a live set from Knife Party, an Anjunabeats and Space Yacht showcase, and much much more. Groove Cruise will sail with a deep crew of underground talent with Greek tech-house phenom CJ Jeff making his first appearance on the ship, dark funk House icon Green Velvet, to Billy Kenny, Bot, Maximono, and the West Coast house master Doc Martin.

This year for the first time, Groove Cruise will take over the iconic Queen Mary in Long Beach to kick off the nautical adventure on Oct 5. The Bon Voyage party will be a late night excursion like no other, Groove Cruise will deliver a devilishly themed Halloween party on the famously haunted Queen Mary. Groove Cruise Founder and CEO of Whet Travel Jason Beukema stated  'Everyone is fascinated by the Queen Mary and its history. It's going to be a once in a lifetime experience to have the GCFam stay on the ship, party onboard and take part in all the Dark Harbor freaky festivities the night before we set sail to Mexico. And it’s conveniently across the parking lot from the cruise terminal we sail from the next day’.

Rightfully crowned as the original electronic music festival cruise, Groove Cruise has successfully sailed 23 voyages since 2004 and is the only musical cruise to sail from both East and West Coasts.
