If you follow 70000TONS OF METAL, 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 line up and sale dates. Well, the new ‘SOON’ is 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 10 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.
70000TONS OF METAL has just announced the first 10 of 60 bands as well as pre-sale start dates for 70000TONS OF METAL Survivors (festival goers who have attended the event before) for Round 10, sailing from January 7 to January 11, 2020.
