SAILING THURS 8- MON 12 AUGUST 2019

Indie heroes Belle and Sebastian are taking to the seas in 2019 on Europe’s first floating festival. ‘The Boaty Weekender’ is a four-day luxury cruise which sails from 8-12 August from Barcelona to Sardinia. Cruise the Med with the band and their handpicked supporting line-up, including Mogwai, Teenage Fanclub, Hinds and Django Django. Cabins on sale now, for more information visit theboatyweekender.com.

Belle and Sebastian’s ‘The Boaty Weekender’ is one of a kind music holiday experience that will feature live performances from the band and their hand-picked supporting line-up, plus Q&As, storyteller and panel sessions, themed parties, group activities, custom event merch and more. Aboard the Norwegian Pearl there will be plenty of chilling out time, breath taking views and a selection of beautiful cabins to make the holiday/festival experience a comfortable and luxurious one.

The Boaty Weekender cruise is a natural continuation of Belle and Sebastian’s special relationship with their fans for over three decades. It is inspired by the band’s legendary Bowlie Weekender, which took place in 1998 and was a landmark in DIY festivals featuring The Flaming Lips, Mogwai, Mecury Rev and Snow Patrol. Bowlie also served as the inspiration for All Tomorrow’s Parties.

“We have got our hands on quite a large boat, and we’re loading it up with some ace groups for a four-day sail round the Med. Join us on the beautiful Norwegian Jade as we depart from Barcelona and make our way to Cagliari, Sardinia to spend some time on dry land with you beautiful groovers. We want to do it right. Let’s have yoga, cocktails, club nights, themed balls, crèches, quizzes and scrabble tournaments – and gigs. Gigs upon gigs from some of our good friends and favourite acts in rock ‘n’ roll across five stages throughout the ship - and instead of stumbling home to a damp tent in a dark field, saunter back to a plush bed in your own stateroom on a luxury liner.” said Belle and Sebastian.
