From the creators of Groove Cruise, Groove Island is a brand new immersive dance music experience on Santa Catalina Island; just off the west coast of the United States. After creating dance music events at sea for over a decade, this festival will mark the very first land event run by Whet Travel and Groove Cruise. The highly anticipated event will transform the picture-perfect Catalina Island into an all-encompassing celebration of life and dance music.
