AVALON—Make way for a new festival on Catalina Island: Groove Island, described as “an immersive dance music experience,” is coming on Sept. 27-30. In its first year, Groove Island blends a celebration of life, positivity and dance music in one of SoCal’s most spectacular settings.
While music is certainly one of the centers of this event, there will be a variety of activities in addition to dancing. Whet Travel, the sponsor and curator, advertises many of the major outdoor recreational activities Catalina is known for including zip lines, eco-tours, golf, hiking, fishing, parasailing and much more. Comics will also be performing in addition to live dance music performances.
Six themed parties will be taking place with homage to the Wrigley Centennial – Avalon’s Casino will host a 1920s-themed party in the ballroom as well as other themed day/night festivities.
Ticket packages, ranging from $199 without accommodation for a three-day pass, are available with a focus on hotel offers, camping and yachting. Passes with accommodation included are on sale now for as low as $497. The three-day festival begins at noon on Friday and ends late on Sunday.
A full itinerary is available on the official website.
