Final line-up for the October edition of Close-up cruise announced. Tickets still available.

Metal, booze and lots of great bands on a Viking ship! What is it? Where? When? Do NOT calm down, do not sit back and relax, do not waste more time, but check all the information about the upcoming metal cruise organized by the Swedish Close-up magazine.

And don’t be quick screaming at us: ”We are poor metalheads, we are not (tattooed) millionaires!” This cruise isn’t like the others. This one will not cost you a fortune like Full Metal Cruise of Wacken or 70 000 Tons of Metal. You can get in Close-up cruise as cheap as for 60 euro per person. The price includes bed in cabin for 4 people and access to all the live shows on board. Is that affordable now or what?
