Paramore to Set Sail Again on Parahoy! Festival at Sea in 2016
Paramore will once again lift anchors when they embark on their second Parahoy! Festival at Sea next year. The floating concert will take place March 5th – 9th and travel round-trip from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico. Paramore will perform twice during the fest, which has yet to announce the rest of its lineup.
The festival, which will take place on a boat called the Norwegian Pearl, will also feature meet and greets, a Q&A and “Paraoke” with the band and other activities which have yet to be announced. It will also include DJ sets, theme nights, sets by stand-up comedians and “much, much more,” according to the fest’s website. The fest is currently running a presale that includes a photo with the group and a Parahoy sailor’s cap.
The group will hand-pick the artists who perform on the fest. Last year’s Parahoy festival featured sets by Tegan and Sara and New Found Glory.
But before the festival, Paramore still have plenty of tour dates to play this year. Earlier this year, frontwoman Hayley Williams told Rolling Stone that she viewed the tour as a victory lap, since the group recently won the Best Rock Song Grammy for their Paramore tune “Ain’t It Fun,” an LP that hit Number One.
“We never in a million years thought we would win a Grammy, or any of the other crazy things that happened along the way,” she said. “So we’re thinking of each show as an event, as a way to celebrate our relationship with fans, to celebrate the album and to celebrate the past two years of this band.”
