Electronic dance music cruise, the GROOVE CRUISE, has chosen viral website, Outstage.com, to give amateur and professional electronic dance music DJs/producers the “gig of a lifetime” featuring Grammy Award winner BENNY BENASSI and twelve other DJs. Sailing from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau Bahamas from January 29th – February 1st, 2010, the GROOVE CRUISE combines the best in nightlife and travel in a series of surreal settings. Submissions for DJ sets are open to the public and the finalists are chosen based on fan voting. In addition to the warm-up slot aboard the cruise, the grand prize also includes round-trip airfare for two (domestic U.S.), a free oceanview cabin aboard the Norwegian Sky cruise ship, meals and entertainment aboard the ship (not including alcohol), admission to the International DJ Expo (Atlantic City, NJ) in August, a one-year complimentary subscription to DJ Times Magazine, and a $100 gift card from Beatport.com.

Voting is now open. The deadline for DJs’ track submissions is Tuesday, December 22nd at 5:00PM EST.

Now entering its sixth year, the GROOVE CRUISE (Whet Travel) is a testament to company CEO, JASON BEUKEMA’s, vision. Recent GROOVE CRUISE headliners have included international DJs/producers: DEADMAU5, ROBBIE RIVERA, SHARAM (DEEP DISH), BAD BOY BILL, LEE BURRIDGE, DJ DAN, DONALD GLAUDE and others. Said Beukema, “My mission when starting the GROOVE CRUISE was to create an unforgettable adventure for young professionals who love dance music. Being onboard a luxury cruise liner in the middle of the ocean, with your favorite DJs spinning your favorite tunes alongside like-minded people dancing ecstatically…is a rush. Add to that our spectacular beach parties and sunsets on the horizon and there’s nothing else like it!” Added The Opium Group’s CARLOS CORREAL, head of talent for the Miami GROOVE CRUISE, “This is an exciting opportunity to present DJs in a new environment outside of nightclubs. It also gives fans the opportunity to enjoy a more intimate show and allows them to feel more connected with the artists.”
