Update: All aboard the S.S. Coachella. Coachella will be running two cruises this December: to the Bahamas on December 16-19 and Jamaica on December 19-23. Acts include Pulp, Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy, Sleigh Bells, and more (full line-up below).

Sources say that Coachella will be getting into the cruise ship game.

While Coachella will be staying in Indio, that might not be the only place to share in the experience. According to the LA Times, Coachella’s forthcoming announcement will be a Coachella-branded cruise ship. While details are not available, the cruise could set sail from Florida as soon as December.

Last year’s two-weekend festival earned $47.3 million, the largest ever for a single concert event. Coachella 2013 is set for the weekends of April 12 and 19. A Coachella cruise would follow similar efforts by EDM promoter HARD Events and Weezer, along with hosts of jam, garage, and hair metal bands.
