Open only to ShipRocked guests, the Official ShipRocked 2017 Pre-Cruise Party will feature performances by Art of Dying and Stitched Up Heart, plus a surprise headlining performance. The all-ages party takes place January 15, 2017 at The Wynwood Yard in Miami. Doors open at 7pm. Located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District (56 NW 29th Street, Miami, FL 33127) and just minutes from downtown Miami, The Wynwood Yard is one of the coolest spots in town. In addition to live music, there will multiple food trucks on site, beverages, raffle prizes and more. For more information, visit www.ShipRocked.com.

In addition, while every ShipRocked is a magical experience for guests and bands alike, ShipRocked 2017 takes it literally: Street Magician Ryan Shadow will be roaming the Carnival Victory throughout the cruise, dazzling guests, defying reason, and disregarding gravity with a mind-blowing display of wizardry, devilry, sorcery, and sleights of hand.
