The world’s longest-running EDM festival cruise has announced its lineup for this year’s LA excursion, and it’s frighteningly exciting. As always, Groove Cruise rounds up the biggest and best in house, techno, and trance for one of the most nautical experiences of the year.

Returning acts include Arty, Ferry Corsten, and Autograf, while plenty of new names will make this Groove Cruise super special. I might be biased, hailing from LA myself, but seeing Space Yacht’s name on the lineup has me feeling extra excited.

This year for the first time, Groove Cruise will take over the iconic Queen Mary in Long Beach to kick off the nautical adventure on Oct 5. The Bon Voyage party will be a late night excursion like no other: Groove Cruise will deliver a devilishly-themed Halloween party on the famously haunted Queen Mary. Groove Cruise Founder and CEO of Whet Travel Jason Beukema stated, “Everyone is fascinated by the Queen Mary and its history. It’s going to be a once in a lifetime experience to have the GCFam stay on the ship, party onboard and take part in all the Dark Harbor freaky festivities the night before we set sail to Mexico. And it’s conveniently across the parking lot from the cruise terminal we sail from the next day.”
