Yes, you read it correctly, there will in fact be a Coachella at Sea. Two cruises are scheduled to sail across the ocean with a lineup of bands/DJs to accompany this voyage, one to The Bahamas (3 days), and the other to Jamaica (4 days). With an eclectic lineup that all will enjoy, this is due to be one of the most epic concerts known to man. Some people say “cruises aren’t for them”, or “cruises are so boring”, well if you can afford this party of all parties, I would reconsider these assumptions, because this could and may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yes, I believe (unless this becomes an annual event), that seeing such an amazing concert out on the open ocean would be a once in a lifetime experience. They’ve got Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, Hot Chip, and James Murphy, as well as El-P and Killer Mike, who just released R.A.P. Music (Killer Mike‘s new album, produced by El-P), one of the best albums this year… so you know you’re in for a treat once the S.S. Coachella sets sail… and my guess, but since you will be on a boat, you’re bound to see some of the artists in person, because they don’t have anywhere else to go before and after they play their set… just sayin’. See above poster for more artists that will be on the ship, and keep an eye out for more surprises to be added to the lineup in the near future.
S.S. Coachella Dates:
Great performance by John Fogerty and The Black Keys from this past weekend at Coachella, as they cover The Bands’, “The Weight”… it’s a must check out video. The video quality isn’t great, but the sound is… and don’t worry, the chick filming, rotates the camera in time for the song to start. Oh, and catch The Black Keys at Lollapalooza this summer, as well as Dan Auerbach‘s newest projects. Enjoy!

So we were all expecting to see a hologram of Nate Dogg during last night’s most anticipated set with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at Coachella 2012, however the two California hip-hop legends exceeded fans expectations by 1 million. For those of you who weren’t watching the live stream last night, you surely missed out on more than a few surprises.
Dre and Snoop- Final Set of the night Coachella 2012
For some collaborated songs, Dre and Snoop brought to the stage Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Warren G, Tony Yayo, 50 Cent, Eminem, and the biggest surprise of the night, Tupac (in hologram form). It was a great set, and I don’t think fans could’ve asked for more, and am sure that nobody was upset about not seeing a hologram of Nate Dogg. Watch most the video footage from the set here…
