Who's ready to get dressed up like a six-foot Rastafarian puppet, suck down some lukewarm Corona, and absolutely not do any drugs while cruisin' across the Atlantic Ocean aboard the MSC Poesia?
That's right ... We're talking about Jam Cruise, every South Florida hippie music junkie's favorite floating vacation.
This annual jammin' bonanza on a boat and its long-haired, sandal-wearing, hot-tub-loving guests will set sail for Turks & Caicos and the Bahamas on May 7, 2013.
And just today, Jam Cruise 11 announced its five-day, 40-act itinerary, including trippy tuneage by Galactic, Big Gigantic, Femi Kuti, Steel Pulse, and Lettuce. See the cut for the full lineup, dates, and ticket details.
