Hey prog junkies.
You might wanna bring out your King Crimson T-shirts, psychedelic "vibes," and sunscreen... We're gonna glide away to the era of Yes, Rush, and Dream Theater aboard the Progressive Nation at Sea cruise.
Setting sail from the Port of Miami on the Norwegian Pearl in February 2014, the four-day floating music fest will be rockin' all the way to the Bahamas with Transatlantic, Beardfish, and other prog legends.
The inaugural cruise marks Progressive Nation's return after a five-year hiatus since its last North American and European tour in 2009 with Dream Theater.
This time around, the rock fest is moving from land to sea as it drifts away to Great Stirrup Cay and Freeport with 14 bands, 40 shows, Q&A sessions, panels, workshops, and other cruise ship shenanigans.
