As you all know, the world was primed to end on December 21, 2012 (an event that thankfully did not transpire). And before the alleged destruction was to go down, DJ Alf Alpha had one goal: To play Coachella — an aim he achieved in spades, including the ultimate in Coachella experiences, the SS Coachella cruise. We caught up with Alf Alpha during the festivities to chat about the experience in general, as well as what he thinks is on the horizon for DJ culture in 2013.
For those of you who opted to remain on dry land this Christmas, the SS Coachella festival took place on an extremely fancy cruise ship over the course of two legs: one that traveled to the Bahamas, another to Jamaica. The event featured performances from bands like Yeasayer, Pulp, Girl Talk and more, as well as off-kilter events like Bingo with Grimes and a Gilligan’s Island-themed pub crawl with the Black Lips. In short, it was a weird, weird, weird event whose success we’re still waiting to gauge (facts and figures forthcoming).
