Offshore – A brand new music festival at sea, sails September 2013

A brand new luxury music festival experience, Offshore, will set sail on its inaugural outing in September 2013 with tickets on-sale from 27th July 2012 (exclusive priority booking pre-sale available from 20th July for those who register between 12th to 19th July).

A European first awaits music-lovers next year as the very first festival to set sail on the Mediterranean Sea departs from Venice on 21st September 2013. A week long, sun-soaked party for only 2,500 guests on a luxury ship will be sound-tracked by 18 of the best guitar bands playing across five intimate venues, world-class DJ’s on state of the art sound systems under the stars and top billing comedians.

No mud, no wellies, no tents, no queues, no portaloos, no miserable UK weather – only premium hotel-style accommodation, exceptional customer service and VIP treatment and outstanding entertainment in a unique and intimate setting.

Those heading Offshore in 2013 will get to see artists who can headline shows for tens of thousands of fans up close and personal in a variety of venues with artists hanging out onboard before and after their performances to host exclusive VIP parties and activities for guests. Not to mention the shore excursions where ticket-holders may find themselves roaming the streets of Dubrovnik, whitewashed Athens, ancient Ephesus or Split alongside a band member or ten.

Ticket-holders will have friends begging to stowaway in their suitcases for this seven day trip of a lifetime. Onboard The Norwegian Jade there really is something for everyone and more on offer than any major or boutique festival – an art gallery, a champagne bar, a casino, a spa, 16 dining options, there’s even a gym, running circuit and basketball court for festival goers that want to keep up their fitness programme onboard! Packages include VIP offerings unmatched by any other festival – private balconies, swimming pools and even luxurious suites with butler service. With one crew member for every two guests, Offshore promises an unrivalled festival experience of comfort and relaxation.

For music-lovers who no longer want to experience festivals in wellies and tents, for holiday-goers looking for something different to those who just fancy a new adventure, now there is Offshore.

An unparalleled seven day luxury holiday and festival all-in-one, Offshore will be the live music experience of 2013 and the very first of its kind in Europe. Organised, booked and promoted by a team with years of music industry and events experience, this truly innovative festival set at sea will change the shape of European festivals forever.

The line-up for Offshore will be unveiled in the coming months.
