When Coachella announced earlier this week that the festival would be sailing on the high seas, naturally the social universe went into conniptions. Festie fans went ecstatic. Haters hated. And more than a few thought the whole cruise was a hoax. Here’s a sampling of some Twitter reactions.
Oh my, #Coachella is being held at sea?! What if the boat sinks? It will be like the hipster Titanic! #SSCoachella

The problem with being surrounded by 100,000 hipsters on ecstasy is you can always just leave. The Coachella Cruise finally solved that.

We’re confused, if Coachella is on a cruise ship, how are you supposed to get your drugs inside?? bit.ly/O90r3E

The good news for those going on the Coachella cruise is that travelling two days before Christmas is always hassle-free.

Wait Coachella is really going to be on a cruise ship? I thought that was a joke. Where are they going to put the filth and port-o-potties?

I really want to go on the SS Coachella. Do you think they’d just let me sleep in James Murphy’s cabin? I think we should be best friends.
