The 70000TONS OF METAL Festival Invasion
The 70000TONS OF METAL crew visited festivals around the world in Summer 2015, including ROCK AL PARQUE in Bogota, Colombia and HEAVY MONTREAL in Montreal, Canada.
The contest winners – a mix of SURVIVORS and First Time Cruisers – gained exclusive access to the 70000TONS OF METAL VIP Lounge, where they soaked in a backstage hot tub while being served drinks by the 70000TONS OF METAL Pool Girls, the Skipper, and even some of their favorite bands! Check out the video below for a glimpse into the madness:
