STS9, Maceo Parker, Zappa Plays Zappa, and the John Medeski/Robert Randolph/North Mississippi Allstars vehicle The Word are some of the top acts scheduled to play. The five night concert voyage leaves from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and makes stops in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.

Other acts scheduled include the new-funk groups Galactic and Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, psych bluegrass act Railroad Earth, Grateful Dead cover act Dark Star Orchestra, as well as members of The String Cheese Incident, Soulive, and The Meters playing in various projects.
