Hard Cruise Sailing Out of Port Everglades January 2012

Miami, couldn't get enough of Hard's measly one-day event at Grand Central last week? Well, you're in luck! Hard is returning to South Florida in January 2012 with its first-ever Hard Cruise!

We noticed flyers scattered around the city during Miami Music Week promoting the Hard Cruise. But we've received confirmation from organizers that the boat will be sailing out of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale.

No line-up has been announced yet. But considering previous bookings like Simian Mobile Disco, Justice, M.I.A., Crystal Castles, Die Antwoord, Juan Maclean, Busy P, Brondinski, Modeselektor, and more, we know it's going to be an electro-heavy voyage. Also, no word on ticket prices and the like, but you can sign up for updates at

The party at sea will take place aboard the MSC Poesia, which, according to the MSC Cruises site, will be making several seven-night Caribbean trips during the month of January.

We also wouldn't be surprised if Hard makes land-locked appearance at an area venue, much like the Bruise Cruise did last month with its kickoff party.

Hard's organizers have promised to keep us updated. So stay tuned.
