“We could not be more proud to partner with the Rolling Out team on Radiant Waves. They have produced highly curated national and local events, content, and conferences for more than twenty years that has entertained, informed and inspired the communities they know and serve so well,” said Anthony Diaz, CEO of Sixthman. “Our mission in launching Radiant Waves is to highlight both legends and contemporary artists on the same stage for fans on vacation. To do so with Charlie Wilson and Ari Lennox is a dream come true. We could not be more excited to welcome them both and the entire line-up of talented artists aboard, along with their most passionate fans.”

RADIANT WAVES will feature multiple onboard performances by an array of rising Neo-Soul stars and legendary icons, including Charlie Wilson, Ari Lennox, Musiq Soulchild, Cory Henry, BJ The Chicago Kid, VanJess, Baby Rose, Marzz, Jac Ross, and Lady Bri. Along with four days of nonstop music, the RADIANT WAVES experience will feature special collaborations, exclusive activities with artists from the lineup, the Radiant Family Happy Hour, movie screenings, late-night parties, autograph sessions, and a special mixology class and cocktail tasting (limited space available; nominal fee applies). All guests will have access to an immersive culinary experience complete with gourmet food, craft cocktails, and more. Guests traveling on RADIANT WAVES can also look forward to exclusive panels where the stars on board will take questions and share their particular insights into the music industry, wellness, and other subjects.

“Travel, tourism, and entertainment for multicultural audiences is a key passion point, consumers want more choices in experiences reflective of their culture and interests,” said Munson Steed, CEO, and founder, Rolling Out. “We are excited to partner with the Sixthman team who has the proven expertise to create immersive magical music and lifestyle events across the world as well as fully integrate our marketing partners into the experience to deliver an awesome voyage for our audiences. This partnership is an open call for fans, bands, and brands to bring their voices to shape the movement.”
