Parahoy there! Fancy a trip on the high seas?
GUYS, GUYS, GUYS! We've just discovered the most insane, amazing and mindblowingly cool thing in the history of all things ever (is that enough hyperbole? Probably not...)
Basically, you know that band Paramore? Well Hayley, Jeremy and Taylor have come up with the BEST way to hold a festival.
Gone are the days of camping in the heat, or if you live in the UK the rain, snow, sleet, storms etc. Instead, Paramore have rented a massive f*ck off cruise ship called the Norwegian Pearl and are hosting a festival, titled Parahoy! (get it?), that travels from from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico.
We're a tiny bit late to this party, as in fact the first festival took place in 2014.
However, we've learned that the band plan on bringing the festivities back in 2016 and it sounds absolutely BONKERS. 2,200 Paramore fans? Check. Over FIVE (!) venues of music? Check. Some amazing bands? Check. Amazing activities and what could possibly be the best week ever? Check!!
But, we've got some serious questions about Parahoy! ALL ABOARD!
Will Hayley Williams wear a cute sailor costume?
She did here. We'd be pretty gutted if Paramore rocked up on a boat and didn't partake in some sort of nautical themed dress up, right!?
Can we actually do karaoke with the bands playing?
There's a thing called PARAoke and that sounds amazing. Not only that, but we've heard murmurs of meet and greets and Q&As.
Brb, just brushing up on our rendition of "You're So Vain".
Who exactly will be playing?
The last time that Parahoy! (we're still not over that) took place, Paramore invited Tegan and Sara, New Found Glory, Shiny Toy Guns, mewithoutYou, Bad Rabbits and Reuben Wu of Ladytron! Imagine being on a boat with that lot! IMAGINE. The line-up for this year's festivities is still under wraps and we can't wait to find out who's playing *prays for a surprise Taylor Swift performance*.
Will the rainbow beard guy be back?
We've heard rumours about the magical rainbow beard guy who popped up at 2014's event and who, according to Billboard, won the bellyflop competition on the second day, and got a mention from Hayley while the band were performing. Basically, who is this magical rainbow man and will he be present again?
Can we come?
Well, unfortunately, tickets to 2016's Parahoy have all been snapped up, but there is a waiting list which we've TOTALLY signed up for. *Watches Inbox forever*.
