70000 TONS OF METAL – first bands confirmed, deadline

Dec 16th, 2009

Winter has begun, Christmas is just around the corner and those of you that don’t like the cold, bad weather just may think, this would be the time to escape to the Caribbean. For next winter we have the perfect plan for you: 70000tons of METAL, the worlds first and biggest floating  Heavy Metal Festival. 4 days, 40 of your favorite Heavy Metal Bands and you, with all your friends, aboard a luxury cruise ship sailing the warm waters of the Caribbean! How does that sound? To add to your excitement we’re thrilled to let you in on the first artists who are confirmed for 70000tons of METAL 2011:

Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica, Amon Amarth, Sodom, Trouble, Witchburner

Stay tuned for the second announcement of artists coming soon! 

70000tons of METAL will sail Monday, January 24, 2011 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Majesty of the Seas” from Miami FL to Cozumel, Mexico and will not return you to the real world for four days until Friday, January 28, 2011.

Make no mistake, this is not your regular grandma’s cruise. It’s also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all ship heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of headbangers? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass and you might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done!

Ticket prices start at US$666 plus US$249 taxes and fees per person and include all on-board entertainment, all meals and non-alcoholic and non-carbonated drinks at the on-board restaurants and 24 room service!

Early-registration for cabins will end January 6, 2010. Early registration will give you the possibility to book cabins before they go on public on-sale and also saves you 10% off the cabin price.
