If you follow 70000TONS OF METAL, the original, the world’s biggest heavy metal cruise on social media, you may have noticed that they are notorious for using the term “soon” when it comes to their festival announcements. This year, they really stretched the meaning of “soon”, with fans waiting in anticipation for the lineup and sale dates. Well, the new “soon” is already now!
The phrase “coming home” always has some emotional elements attached to it. Since 2011, for thousands of metalheads, it means joining the 70000TONS OF METAL cruise, sailing out of South Florida, USA. It’s where they meet their Heavy Metal family and make new friends when the United Nations of Heavy Metal reunites every year. In 2020, “coming home” will have another meaning to go with it, as round X of 70000TONS OF METAL, the original, the world’s biggest heavy metal cruise will bring sailors to Cozumel, Mexico, the original Port of Call back in 2011.
Round X of 70000TONS OF METAL will sail from January 7 to January 11, 2020.
Public Sales start on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at 12PM EDT (9AM PDT and 18:00 CEST respectively).
