60 Bands, 4 Days, 1 Cruise Ship, and only 3000 Tickets. This is 70000TONS OF METAL™, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise!

On 70000TONS OF METAL™ you get unrestricted festival access to all 120 live shows on board, 70000TONS™ OF KARAOKE until sunrise, Jamming With Waters In International Waters – the Official 70000TONS OF METAL™ All Star Jam which writes Heavy Metal History every year, Clinics and Work-Shops with the musicians, our infamous Belly Flop Contest, Shore Excursions with your favorite artists, and much more!

Everyone on board is a VIP, we don’t have assigned seating (this is a Heavy Metal Cruise after all), and most importantly the bars on our ship never close – you heard us, bars that never close!

On this life changing adventure you will spend five days and four nights at Sea mingling side-by-side with your favorite artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s having an All-Access backstage pass!

Next Departure:




We Will Celebrate…!

70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival, is almost complete. Our American scouts are on their way to Florida. Our European scouts came on board in Hamburg, Germany, but we are still missing one!

Having in mind that we also lost one along the way, The Skipper gave orders to sail through the Kiel Canal, back to the Baltic Sea one more time and call in Stockholm, Sweden to celebrate a CANDLEMASS! Sailors from around the world, please welcome one of the Godfathers of Doom that will perform next to a current set, a very special performance of their legendary Epicus Doomicus Metallicus in it’s entirety with their original singer Johan Längqvis.

40 out of 40 and counting… while we sail full steam ahead to Florida. As a little bonus, like last year, we want to give two more bands the chance to sail with us and bring the final count to 42 out of 40… therefore please also welcome MEGORA from Switzerland and DIAMOND PLATE from Chicago, IL on board a sold out 70000TONS OF METAL 2012, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival!


A MASSACRE On A Cruise Ship!

What are our scouting parties still doing out there? You guys in Germany pack up all that beer and get to the next port for embarkation! And what about the ones last heard from when they were in California? You better make your way to Florida because there will be a big MASSACRE on a cruise ship!

70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival, is now counting 39 out of 40… you will know the last one… …soon!



70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival, is sold out! We only have a very few Single Tickets in shared cabins left. Don’t wait! Grab them now here. If you still hope for a private cabin, please join the Waiting List.
