70000Tons of Metal 201702.02.2017 - 06.02.2017, Labadee, Haiti
70000Tons of Metal, the world's biggest heavy metal cruise!
Sun, hot tubs and the full portion of metal instead of little snow and much cold and rain. It’s not only because of this that the visitors of this year’s 70000Tons Of Metal may right now reminisce last week. This year, the World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise travelled from Fort Lauderdale in Florida to Labadee in Haiti and back – and aboard were 3000 celebrating and headbanging heavy metal sailors and 61 bands that made the world’s biggest open air stage at sea tremble with their 123 shows in four days. Bands like Anthrax, Overkill, Striker or Arch Enemy rocked the sold out luxury cruiser at its seventh round through the Caribbean.
In times of national compartmentalisation and purposefully stirred xenophobia, the big heavy metal family aboard the Independence Of The Seas impresses with its own alternative draft. As every year, the amount of nations who conjointly mosh, romp around or relax in the hot tubs has increased again – to 74 this year!
The organizers thank this “United Nations Of Heavy Metal At Sea” for four unforgettable days – and also utter appreciation for the crew that helped to arrange the concerts and special events like signing sessions or meet and greets.
And after the cruise is before the cruise: The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise will set sail next year from February 1 – 5 – and sails from Fort Lauderdale to Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos and back.
