      You can book now for this extraordinary festival, but they can't tell you who it features?

      It's a bit of a gamble. It could feature Jane McDonald or the Worzels!

            I love Clean Bandit

            I'm on the maiden, so highly unlikely to do this one too. It sounds quite different and I'm sure it will be very popular with a lot of people.

            Of course some people had already booked it, for a lot less than they are charging now. I wonder if they are happy with the announcement of it being a festival at sea ..........................................Carol

              Result if they want it
              They should be able to sell their booking through a name change.

                  Not heard of most of the acts/DJ's. I'm obviously TOO OLD for the Fjords now!

                    You jest! Think Radio 2 (maybe P&O's target market??)

                    Strange date - 4 July - Independence Day in USA ; middle Saturday at Wimbledon; middle of the Euros (football)

                      Having done music cruises the main concern would be the "free for all" approach, the well organised ones make sure the headline act are available to everyone with allocated performances.

                        Hi JC

                        Yep got that EMail a few days ago, we get off Iona on 4th July, do you think if I am a good boy they will let me stay on an extra day for the naming ceremony

                        Hope they have not saved it all for the 4-11th and our cruise the week before, will still have some decent entertainment

                        Although since booking have found out our cruise is a Strictly Come Dancing cruise, but that only takes place in one venue. 🕺🏾💃😄😎

                          Thirteen hundred quid to watch a group of miniscule talented nobodies, stick records on a gramophone and press the play button.

                          I would want a lot more for my money than that lot...............Wilba

                            Clean Bandit are fabulous, first heard them on the BBC Christmas advert 2017 with 'Symphony'. I bet you would recognise their songs if you heard them...Carol

                              I notice you have to pre book to see the acts as many are on simultaneously

                              It's all included

                              “What’s more, all acts and Ionafest events are included in the price for Ionafest 2020! As many events are taking place simultaneously across the entire ship, you’ll need to decide which performances and celebrations you wish to attend. Entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis. While we cannot guarantee you will see every chosen act and event, we can promise a once-in-a-lifetime festival experience.“
