Soundcheck Submission

The Melissa Etheridge Cruise Soundcheck

Sixthman Soundcheck is the chance of a lifetime. We’re looking for 3 awesome acts to join us on the Melissa Etheridge Cruise sailing October 20-26, 2020! Do you have what it takes?

How It Works

Round 1

The Top 10 semi-finalists will be voted on by guests booked on The Melissa Etheridge Cruise IV, as well as your fans, to determine the Top 5 acts. Voting will take place in March and will be hosted here on this page. Our booked guest votes will be weighted during the first round decisions, regardless of the overall total number of voters.

Round 2

The Top 5 acts will be narrowed down to 3 Soundcheck winners by our booked guests in April.


Sunday, February 23rd at 11:59pm ET: Artist deadline to complete the submission form below.

Early March: 10 semi-finalists, chosen by a panel of Melissa Etheridge Cruise experts at Sixthman, will be notified to move on to the voting round. Public announcement will be coordinated soon thereafter.

End of March:  5 finalists, chosen by your fans and our booked guests, will be notified and move to the next round of voting where booked guests will select the final 3 winners.

Early April: The 3 Soundcheck winners will be notified and secured. Public announcement will be coordinated soon thereafter.

The Fine Print

Each Soundcheck winner will perform three (3) 45 - 60 min sets on board Norwegian Pearl. Set times and location TBD. Each Soundcheck winner will receive stateroom accommodations (up to 2 cabins) provided with $500 guarantee payable on board. Travel to and from the Port of Miami NOT included.
