Get ready to set sail on Year 11 for the ShipRocked Cruise. Organizers have announced the lineup and key details for the 2020 event, which will take place Feb. 1-6 next year. The Carnival Valor will depart from New Orleans, with stops in Key West and Cozumel along the way.

The lineup has been revealed, with Halestorm and Alter Bridge sitting atop the bill. Asking Alexandria, Badflower, Beartooth, Black Stone Cherry, Cane Hill, Dead Posey, Dead Sara, Ded, Goodbye June, Hands Like Houses, Hyro the Hero, Ice Nine Kills, Living Colour, Of Mice & Men, Royal Tusk, Shvpes, Vein, We Are Band Nerds and more set to play. Plus, as in recent years, there will be an appearance by the all-star band The Stowaways. In addition, Clint Lowery will play solo, Wilson's Chad Nicefield will be doing DJ sets and Andy Wood and more will take part. Look for more talent to be announced soon.

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale says, “The last time we were castaways on ShipRocked it was a blast! I don’t know what was more fun, the epic non-stop rock shows or just being able to party one on one with all of our super fans! We out-ran a storm, Arejay gave interviews with a rubber chicken in an elevator, we handed out free drinks to anyone who wanted them, I even got lucky...playing roulette! I can’t wait to make new memories with all of you!”

Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti adds, “I always look forward to hanging with all of our friends on ShipRocked. It is definitely one of the highlights of our tour; see you all soon!”

Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop jokes, “As a man who has performed on ShipRocked before, and regularly blacks out on boats, I am looking forward to doing both again in February. If you see a guy who looks like me but is almost definitely an inflatable tube man from outside a car dealership...it’s me and I probably need more tequila (no cheap sh*t).”

“It’s the 11th voyage of ShipRocked, so naturally we are gonna crank it up one louder! SR20 promises to deliver one of the most incredible and diverse lineups we’ve ever hosted aboard, and we couldn’t be more excited for our guests to ‘Rock Hard and Vacation Harder’ with all of our performers next February!” says ShipRocked creator and producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment. “We’re also stoked to be sailing for the first time from the Big Easy – a city which is ready made for our ShipRocker Krewe – and to throw a proper week long Carnivàle! We’ll have dat boat brimmin' with plenty of booze, beads and beaucoup bands, ready to Laissez les bon temps Roche…Let the good times ROCK!”
