Groove Cruise Miami is partnering with LP Giobbi’s FEMME HOUSE to launch a DJ contest with fantastic prizes, including an opening set and more.
As the sun sets on 2023, Groove Cruise is already preparing to make waves in the new year. 2024 will see the iconic floating electronic music festival commemorate its 20th year sailing the high seas, from January 24-28, departing from Miami to the serene Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. This year, in a bid to amplify the voices of marginalized communities in the music industry, they’ve partnered with LP Giobbi‘s groundbreaking initiative, FEMME HOUSE, and Whet Foundation for an amazing opportunity to DJ on board the Norwegian Encore.
The contest winner is in for a treat beyond their wildest dreams. They’ll kick off the festivities with an opening slot on the FEMME HOUSE stage while also enjoying accommodations for two aboard the ship. Additionally, a $600 travel stipend, features on both FEMME HOUSE and Groove Cruise radio shows, and a bespoke artist promotional package courtesy of EDM.com will be at their disposal. With a prize pool soaring over $4,000 and room packages sold out, this contest may be your last chance to attend. All you need to do is create a 30-minute video mix of yourself performing!
FEMME HOUSE, co-founded by LP Giobbi and Hermixalot, seeks to challenge and transform the music industry’s status quo. Their mission is to provide education, scholarships, and visibility for women, gender-expansive, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ individuals. The duo explains their ethos, “FEMME HOUSE’s impact happens at the magical intersection of community support, shared resources, and the abundant opportunity that results from combining the two. We’re deeply honored to have allies like Groove Cruise that echo our commitment to education, visual representation, and ultimately, equity in music.“
As the first-ever FEMME HOUSE stage at Groove Cruise Miami 2024 prepares to set sail, it’s not just about the music. It’s about making a statement, fostering inclusivity, and celebrating two decades of Groove Cruise’s undying spirit. This voyage promises more than melodies; it promises a brighter, more inclusive future for the world of music.
