Yes to Headline Cruise to the Edge
Yes, Marillion, Steve Hackett-Genesis Revisited, UK, Queensryche and more will anchor the lineup for the second annual Cruise to the Edge, a kind of Jam Cruise for prog-rock fans. The all-inclusive boat festival will depart from Miami on April 7, 2014 for five days and nights of music from more than 25 acts, as well as stops in the ports of Isla de Roatan, Honduras and Cozumel, Mexico.
Cruise to the Edge will feature multiple sets by Yes, who helmed the first incarnation of the event earlier this year. Other artists on the bill include Tangerine Dream, Renaissance, Saga, Three Friends (former members of Gentle Giant), Patrick Moraz, PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi), Lifesigns and more.
Event organizers will be building the biggest-ever deck-side stage aboard the charter ship MSC Divina specifically for Cruise to the Edge. In addition, the event will include special “Storytellers” style concerts by many bands, complete with behind-the-scenes stories. There will also be an acoustic lounge and prog-jam stage that will keep the music going into the late hours.
Tickets to next year’s Cruise to the Edge currently on sale, with cabins starting at $799 per person.
