The historic Queen Mary is about to transform from an ocean liner into the epicenter of an ear-shattering, bass-thumping, post-apocalyptic rave. This weekend, the grand dame hosts the Apocalypse Festival, a two-day electronic dance music extravaganza with a zombie twist as reported by the Long Beach Post. Starting at 2 p.m. tomorrow, those eager to escape from their turkey-induced stupors will have the chance to instead headbang to the likes of Excision, Dack Janiels, Zeds Dead, and others.

According to the official City of Long Beach Facebook page, festivalgoers should be ready to fully embrace the "basspocalypse" and can find all the necessary details, such as the full lineup, venue map, parking information, and shuttle service schedules, on the festival's website. Additionally, they've indicated that Long Beach Transit will adapt their Passport route to roughly make accommodations for the pulsing crowds from 11:00 a.m. to midnight on the days of the event.

Ticket prices for this musical melee have been set to start at $219.99 for two-day general admission and $109.99 for a single day, with VIP passes running slightly higher.

The venue will be closed to general sightseers tomorrow until it reopens at 1:00 p.m. on the 26th per the official announcement from the City of Long Beach.
