Voragos is the creative partnership of Danny Wimmer Presents and Sixthman.
“Although we’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a ‘rock cruise,’ there are others in the space that already do it really well. For DWP to do a cruise, we had to have something that would make our voyage uniquely ours,” said Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents. “The opportunity to work with Sixthman and add a festival on a private island in Belize gave us the twist we were looking for and the comfort of working with a best-in-class partner like the Sixthman team. When else will you ever have the chance to see Rob Zombie and Chevelle on a private island with 3,000 of your closest friends? This is exactly the once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience that DWP likes to create for our amazing fans.”
Anthony Diaz, CEO of Sixthman, said: “Today’s announcement of the high octane lineup and highly immersive vacation experience showcases the commitment of Danny Wimmer Presents and Sixthman to curate the ultimate vacation for rock fans that includes days and nights of music and more at sea plus a full festival day on a decked out private island. The inaugural Voragos event will be a truly mind-blowing festival next February and for years to come!”
The Norwegian Pearl will serve as the floating venue for this rock adventure. Guests will be able to enjoy Norwegian Cruise Line’s signature freedom and flexibility to enjoy 11 onboard bars and lounges, 15 dining experiences, a casino, one outdoor pool, hot tubs and a full menu of spa treatments.
Harvest Caye in Southern Belize is the Caribbean’s premier private island destination featuring an expansive pool with a swim-up bar, salt-water lagoon for water sports, exclusive 7-acre beach and shore excursions ranging from zip lining across the island to snorkeling the world’s second largest barrier reef.
Over the coming months, Danny Wimmer Presents and Sixthman will work with Norwegian officials to assure the destination event conforms to then-current social distancing protocols.
