The much-anticipated 8th edition sails from Miami/Fort Lauderdale, FL to Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands and back on February 1-5, 2018.

The first 16 bands announced are: AETERNAM, CANNIBAL CORPSE, DARK TRANQUILLITY, ENSLAVED, GOATWHORE, IN EXTREMO, INSOMNIUM, KORPIKLAANI, MESHUGGAH, NECROPHOBIC, OBSCURA, OCTOBER TIDE, RHAPSODY, SEPTICFLESH, SEPULTURA and SONATA ARCTICA.

SILVER Survivors (festival goers who have attended one or two times) will be able to purchase tickets starting Monday July 17, 2017 at 12PM EDT (9AM PDT, 18:00 CEST and respectively 17:00 GMT+1).

The Public Sales date will be announced in the coming weeks across all @70000tons social media pages and on the official 70000TONS OF METAL website.

Ticket prices for the 2018 cruise start at USD 766.00 plus Taxes and Fees per person and include on board accommodation, access to all shows, meals, room service as well as port and service charges.

"Every year I book a very diverse line-up trying to cover all sub-genres of Heavy Metal," says Andy Piller, The Skipper of 70000TONS OF METAL. "The only thing that's even more diverse are our Survivors. Last year we welcomed Metalheads from 74 (seventy-four!) different Nations on board, making 70000TONS OF METAL truly feel like the United Nations of Heavy Metal... at Sea! Just imagine having people from all over the Globe on the same ship. Origin, race, language, religion, lifestyle, all of that does not matter anymore. You can feel the vibe on board that everyone is equal. That's what makes me most proud about 70000TONS OF METAL."

70000TONS OF METAL is The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, which features 60 Heavy Metal bands on board a luxury cruise ship performing across four stages, including The World’s Biggest Open Air Stage Structure to Sail the Seas.

The Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas, one of the biggest cruise ships in the World, offers guests complimentary fine dining, 22 bars and lounges, 24 hour room service, and a host of activities and on board amenities.

With seven consecutive sellouts since the first voyage in 2011, this five-day, four-night Heavy Metal Music Festival and Caribbean vacation offers 3,000 Metalheads a once in a lifetime opportunity to mingle side-by-side with 60 world class Heavy Metal bands.

Every band plays twice and you get unrestricted festival access to 120+ live performances, including the Jamming with Waters in International Waters All-Star Jam, Meet & Greets with every band, intimate Artist Clinics & Workshops, exclusive Album Premiere Listening Sessions and much more. All of this with no VIP areas on board makes it feel like everyone has a Backstage Pass. If that's not enough, festival goers even get a chance to explore their Caribbean dream destination with Artist escorted shore excursions.
