(Newser) – Perhaps you've always wanted to go to Coachella, but the idea of spending a weekend in a tent in the desert just didn't appeal to you. Well, good news, luxury lovers: Soon you can enjoy Coachella in the much swankier digs of a cruise ship. The music festival is going to sea, with the SS Coachella launching two trips in December featuring musical acts like Pulp, Girl Talk, Yeasayer, and Sleigh Bells. Expect to shell out at least $500 per person, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The short cruises, one to the Bahamas and the other to Jamaica, leave from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and feature more than 20 acts between them. It's the first time promoter Goldenvoice has branded any event other than the annual California festival with the Coachella name, and it suggests Coachella will become more of a national—not to mention year-round—name.
