The sold-out Groove Cruise sailing January 9-13, 2020 is not only the most fabulous way to dance to world-class sounds from internationally acclaimed artists like Above & Beyond, but fans can also get the chance to win a free cruise plus a meet-and-greet with the legendary Anjunabeats curators, as well as the chance to participate in many more activities with headliners–all for a great cause, too!

The nonprofit Whet Foundation 501c3 is a way for Groove Cruise and it’s parent company Whet Travel to give back and use their visibility to connect, assist, and educate communities they sail to through hands-on campaigns. Initiatives such as beach clean-ups and supply drives for local children’s charities wouldn’t be possible without the efforts and enthusiasm of the Whet Foundation volunteers. As part of Groove Cruise, attendees, also known as “Captains,” will be asked to bring school supplies, unused clothing, and other items to donate.

This year’s activity sign-ups are also a fundraiser to benefit the Whet Foundation and include a meet-and-greet with Above & Beyond, plus basketball with Markus Schulz, Gene Farris, Mariana BO, and Cocodrills, as well as cocktails with Nora En Pure, tequila tasting with Roger Sanchez, Black Jack with Anthony Attalla, soccer with Caleb Calloway and Offiah, a bar crawl with Danny Howard, “Fortnite” tournament with Fatum, wine tasting with Factor B and Solarstone, meditation with Emma Hewitt, kickboxing with Yaya, and many more unique offerings. To be entered to win a spot at one of the 19 Artist-Fan activities, sailing #GCFam just need to sign-up and make a donation to the Whet Foundation of any amount at

But wait, there’s more! Groove Cruise is also offering a special Grand Prize option for anyone who may have missed the ticket sales. Since the floating festival is now sold out, contest entrants can donate-to-sign-up for a chance to win a trip to meet Above & Beyond during Groove Cruise Miami 2020. This includes flight credit to Miami for two, a balcony stateroom for two, and access to all of the Tier 1 headliner’s Artist-Fan Activities (Note: If a sailing Captain wins, their stateroom costs will be reimbursed). Interested fans simply need to visit

For Groove Cruise Miami 2020, anyone sailing on the trip from Miami to Costa Maya and looking to take part in the Whet Foundation’s relief project will be visiting Casa de la Cultura, a local school in the village of Mahahual, Costa Maya. During this excursion, volunteers will help facilitate upgrades such as clearing an area for a playground, a new coat of paint for the school, supplying a new air conditioner, and treating 450 locals to a hearty meal, as well as bringing the donated school supplies and clothing to the students and staff. Many volunteers rate their Whet Foundation experience as the highlight of Groove Cruise! To learn more about the Whet Foundation, visit and follow on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
