If you are a fan of prog rock and not a fan of February snow storms, buy your tickets for Cruise to the Edge, the genre’s biggest, wildest festival, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas. The cruise takes place February 7th – 11th, leaving from Tampa, Florida and sailing to Cozumel, Mexico. The festival includes performances by YES, Kansas, Steve Hackett, John Wetton, Mike Portnoy and many more.
Along with a wide range of cruise activities and music performances, guests will also be able to partake in music-themed events. Famous YES album design artist Roger Dean will be aboard to talk about the backstory of his unique designs. Artist/Cruiser Photo Experience, Q&A Sessions and Late-Night Surprise Performances will take place throughout the event. YES expert and UK journalist Jon Kirkman will be hosting the cruise.
Guests will have the opportunity to showcase their own musical talents at CTTE Late Night Live, get a chance to play with Prog legends at both the Pro Jam, where guests are invited to play with a headlining act, and Artist’s Choice, which features a number of fans and Prog legends performing together.
