Are you a veteran festival goer only now beginning to feel like your time in the trenches is over? You’re a stalwart of the indie stages, but quite frankly mud doesn’t tan.

Say no more, this morning Belle & Sebastian have announced a four day festival cruise around the Mediterranean, sailing to Sardinia from Barcelona and back from August 8th – 12th 2019

The cruise will feature performances across five stages from some of your favourite acts, as well as a specially curated line-up of emerging artists too.

“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. Welcome to The Boaty Weekender: our new take on an old classic, The Bowlie Weekender. Join us August 8–12, 2019 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 and cocktails and club nights and themed balls and crèches and 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. – Belle & Sebastian
