From the incredible performances to the people that you run into on board, The Groove Cruise holds a special place in festival goers hearts. If you’re thinking about taking to the seas for your next festival adventure, The Groove Cruise L.A. is most definitely one of the most memorable events you can attend as a dance music fan.

The history of Groove Cruise goes back more than a decade, but the GC vibes are still as fresh as day 1.

Starting several years ago as an extension of the annual Miami voyage, Groove Cruise L.A. gives west coast EDM fans an opportunity to partake in the fun without being forced to trek coast to coast to attend Groove Cruise Miami. Leaving out of the Port of Long Beach and traveling down the coast to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico, The Groove Cruise L.A.’s 2015 happenings are already legendary.

The promotion company responsible for Groove Cruise is Whet Travel, and they excel fans were treated with the utmost respect throughout the voyage. There was a desire created by the fans and staff on board the cruise to create lasting relationships with attendees.

Even when relationships didn’t exist before, fans returned home with a deeper appreciation for life on this magical getaway.

The music was just an added bonus. Performers such as Darude, EDX, Vicetone, Paul Oakenfold, Boehm, Guy Gerber, Dirty South, and more put on epic performances both on and off the ship. But more than that, they were also just there to have fun with everyone else.
