The event might be nine months away, but the first batch of bands has just been announced for the 2010 edition of ShipRocked. The floating festival will feature Cinderella, supergroup Hail!, the Letter Black, Lynam, Broken Teeth, the Niki Barr Band and Pianotarium. More bands will be announced soon. Shiprocked will sail Nov. 11-14.

In addition to intimate concerts, passengers can enjoy special meet-and-greet sessions with the bands as well as other activities.

ShipRocked leaves from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and includes two Bahamas ports of call: Nassau and the private island of Coca Cay Bay. Attendees will sail on the MSC Poesia. Booking is not yet open, but cabin pricing begins at $499 per person with varying prices depending on room category selected. The cost includes all concerts, plus room and board on the ship.

Ticketing will be available soon via the festival's official Web site.
