As the departure date for the inaugural voyage fast approaches, Axes & Anchors Music Cruise is announcing that they have become a sponsor of the Guitar Gods Festival, which is to take place in Miami on February 19th, 2016. The Guitar Gods Festival will be held at the North Beach Bandshell and will feature performances by Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai and Nicko McBrain of IRON MAIDEN, with more performers to be announced. The centerpiece of the Guitar Gods Festival is the online competition, where budding artists compete to determine the next Guitar God. Artists will submit their best work to the Guitar Gods website. There will be a $25.00 submission fee for entrants, with a portion of that fee going to benefit the April Malmsteen Foundation; a foundation that works to protect endangered species and their habitats around the globe. The contest is open to all acoustic and electric guitar players of any age, whether they be soloists, duos, or full bands – anything goes as long as there’s a guitarist. The submissions will be voted on by fans and an all-star panel of judges, with eight performers being selected to perform at the event on February 19th, and one lucky performer at the Festival winning an all-expenses paid cabin and a performance slot on the Axes & Anchors Music Cruise. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be the next Guitar God, head over to www.GuitarGodsFestival.com for more information.

Axes & Anchors features the most diverse list of performances and clinics the high seas has ever experienced. Concerts and instructional sessions will be presented by the likes of Breaking Benjamin, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker, Motionless In White, Flyleaf, Thousand Foot Krutch, Marty Friedman, Alex Skolnick, Tony MacAlpine, Tracii Guns, Rudy Sarzo, Mike Orlando, Adelitas Way, Demon Hunter, Randy Rhoads Remembered, Act Of Defiance, Chris Broderick, Shawn Drover, Gilby Clarke, Dario Lorina, Aranda, Black Knight’s Castle featuring guitarist Joe Stump, Johnny Monaco, “Metal Mike” Chlasciak, Pamela Moore, Falling Through April, Gabriel Ayala and Headstrum. The 5 day/4 night journey that leaves out of Miami on February 20th aboard the luxurious Carnival Victory, will make stops in Key West and Nassau, Bahamas before returning to Miami on February 24th.

The cruise guarantees fans plenty of opportunities for meeting and hanging with their favorite bands on board, including free workshops on topics ranging from guitar and vocals, to concert photography, to stage clothing construction. Passengers are encouraged to bring their guitars on board for workshops and jam sessions. All reservations include 4-nights lodging and taxes, all meals, all concerts, all open workshops, a professional photo opportunity with every artist, and more. Cabins can be reserved for a minimum payment of $250 and can be reserved at www.AxesAndAnchors.com or by calling 775-600-AXES (2937).
