Groove Cruise is back and better than ever with a star-studded lineup that will kick off 2023. Headed by Whet Travel, the sea-bound dance music festival is ready to make its 35th sailing out of Miami to the private island of Labadee, Haiti. The flagship event will take place aboard the award-winning Celebrity Summit from Thursday, January 19, to Monday, January 23.
Attendees, also known as “Captains”, will have the opportunity to see German trance veteran Markus Schulz and BITE THIS label head Jauz perform live. Additionally, Swiss-South African deep house sensation Nora En Pure will be joined by the mystifying Claptone for two headlining sets that will be etched in music history.
Besides Nora En Pure, Groove Cruise puts a spotlight on other gifted female acts like Nostalgix, Speaker Honey, Gioli & Assia, and Casmalia. Further fortifying the Groove Cruise Miami’s headliners is a strong cast of artists from an array of genres. Debut appearances are to be made by BIJOU, Cloonee, Hasbstrakt, Kaivon, Matroda, William Black, and many more. Returning for memorable sets are house legends Ship Wrek and EDX.
For Groove Cruise first-timers, the festival is much more than an event filled with unbelievable music and people. Ticket holders will get to take part in thrilling activities such as boat and island tours, riding the world’s biggest zip line, jet skis, the island’s Dragon’s Tail rollercoaster, and other engaging options. Not to mention that the island consists of a scenic paradise that most can only see in pictures and movies.
As we get closer to 2023, the anticipation for January’s Groove Cruise continues to build. Strap in and prepare yourself for 96 hours of nonstop music from this extensive showcasing of global superstars!
