Elrow pranks fans with fake cruise on Spain’s answer to April Fools’ Day

65 artists over 15 days on a mega cruise liner, it would have been one hell of a party!

Elrow pranks fans with fake cruise on Spain's answer to April Fools' Day

We’ve all been there, the butt of a cleverly planned prank or a momentary lapse in concentration. Either way, there’s no escaping April Fools’ Day sometimes, and there have been some incredible stunts pulled in the electronic music world over the years.

You may ask yourself what relevance this has to the fact that it’s nowhere near April. Well, Spanish event stable elrow have been up to their usual wacky tricks this week – pranking thousands of rave-wanting fans around the globe with a fake party cruise.

Posting across their Facebook and Instagram accounts on 28th December, they dropped a mind-blowing announcement out of nowhere that seemingly confirmed a mega party on the seas in June 2022.

Setting sail from Barcelona and heading to Sardinia via Ibiza, Mykonos and Obonjan, the 15-day party on Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas mega cruise liner boasted more than 65 artists, 22 restaurants, 4 Pools, 20+ parties, 3-story slides, Surf, Golf & more.

Sounds too good to be true, right? Hook, line and sinker.

28th December is also known as Holy Innocent’s Day or Día de los Santos Inocentes. In Span and Spanish-speaking Latin America, it’s very much the equivalent of April Fools’ day.

A day later, elrow took to social media once more to clear up the situation and relish in yet another successful large-scale prank. In 2018, the brand pulled another notorious prank – fooling fans into believing that they could visit the island of Obonjan, or ‘elrow island’ for an immersive festival.

Well played elrow, well played.
