Felt emo, might cruise.
The second voyage of the Emo’s Not Dead cruise will depart on 26 February 2024 after last year’s initial run completely sold out in under a day.
The four-day at-sea music festival will be headlined by Yellowcard and features a massive undercard including Story Of The Year, August Burns Red, Mayday Parade, and many more.
Departing from Miami on 26 February, the Norwegian Pearl cruise ship will head to a private location in the Bahamas for the experience of a lifetime.
Emo’s Not Dead founder Matt Cutshall (aka Your Broken Hero) promises “a melancholic summer experience like no other”. In a press release, Cutshall added, “We’ll be moshing all day, screaming all night while we brush shoulders with emo legends on the sea of tears! Trust us when we say, you’ll be down bad if you miss this one!”
You can join the pre-sale for Emo’s Not Dead tickets here. As Blabbermouth reports, organisers offer three different payment options, including Automated Monthly Billing allowing for a $100 deposit per person until 26 June.

Consequence Of Sound said that the 2022 Emo’s Not Dead cruise concluded “it wasn’t just a phase” in its review and photo gallery.
“It was a little depressing, honestly, to be exiting the ship,” the review noted. “Though perfect for the disposition and theme of the cruise in general, most of us moped around the boat longing for coffee and dreading the return to our regular lives.
“For those four days we got to relive our youth — a time less complicated, when acceptance was communicated through black eyeliner, MySpace quizzes, spiky belts and ‘rawr <3’ written on our palms. Like lemmings, the queue of cruisers grew longer and heavier with the baggage we couldn’t cry away during the sets, drifting through the port terminal like our own little black parade.
“And, just like that, chilled currents blew us back into reality, yearning for the next gathering of our scene community.”
