Jam Cruise: 2014 Dates, New Ship, New Departure Location
Cloud 9 Adventures has confirmed the initial details for Jam Cruise 12. The annual destination event will sail from January 4-9, 2014. After a few years aboard the MSC Poesia, this year’s Jam Cruise will upgrade to the larger MSC Divina and will depart from Miami, FL instead of Fort Lauderdale. The festival’s initial lineup will be confirmed on May 1. Though the Divina is a larger ship, Jam Cruise’s promoters will limit the boat’s capacity to maintain the festival’s intimacy.
This year’s Jam Cruise featured Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood, moe., Femi Kuti, The funky Meters, Tea Leaf Green, ALO, Nathan Moore, Brock Butler, Steel Pulse, Big Gigantic, Umphrey’s McGee’s Joel Cummins and many others. Galactic and Karl Denson are the only musicians who have performed on every Jam Cruise.
