70000TONS OF METAL 2020: First 10 Bands and Pre-Sale Start!


The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise 70000TONS OF METAL announces first 10 bands and pre-sale start for Round 10!

If you follow 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, on social media, you may have noticed that they are notorious for using the term 'SOON' when it comes to their festival announcements. This year, they really stretched the meaning of 'SOON', with fans waiting in anticipation for the line up and sale dates. Well, the new 'SOON' is NOW ...

The phrase “coming home” always has some emotional elements attached to it. Since 2011, for thousands of Metalheads, it means joining the 70000TONS OF METAL cruise, sailing out of South Florida, USA. It’s where they meet their Heavy Metal family and make new friends when the United Nations of Heavy Metal reunites every year. In 2020, “coming home” will have another meaning to go with it, as Round 10 of 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise will bring Sailors to Cozumel, Mexico, the original Port of Call back in 2011.

70000TONS OF METAL has just announced the first 10 of 60 bands as well as pre-sale start dates for 70000TONS OF METAL Survivors (festival goers who have attended the event before) for Round 10, sailing from January 7 to January 11, 2020.

Pre-sales for Gold Survivors (those who have attended at least three times before) and Silver Survivors (those who have attended at least once before) have already started. Public Sales start on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 12PM EDT (9AM PDT and 18:00 CEST respectively). Check out 70000tons.com for more information.


The first 10 of 60 bands that have been announced are:

EPICA ("Design Your Universe" Set)
MOONSORROW (will perform their album "Verisäkeet" in its entirety)

Survivors and first-time sailors will headbang their way on board the 154,000+ ton luxury cruise ship, the Independence of the Seas, from Miami / Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to the beautiful island of Cozumel, Mexico and back. Sailors will be joined by 60 world-class Heavy Metal bands, performing 120+ shows over 4 nights. Only 3000 tickets will be sold.
