70000 Tons Of Jamming for a cause’ supports poverty and disaster relief in Mexico

70000 Tons of Metal

For the tenth year in a row, 70000 Tons Of Metal, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, took Heavy Metal fans on their dream vacation. Round X took place from January 7th-11th, 2020, and hosted 3000 Metalheads headbanging their way back to the place where it all began in 2011: the beautiful island of Cozumel, Mexico.

With a strong connection to the International Heavy Metal community, the organizers proudly call themselves the “United Nations of Heavy Metal at Sea”, and for good reason – Headbangers hailing from an astonishing 71 different nations were welcomed on board for Round X!

Although this “homecoming” sailing was a sentimental celebration of the tenth voyage of this Headbangers’ dream vacation, the organizers remain conscient that relief and awareness of poverty and emergencies in Mexico is needed. As they did back in 2017 with full proceeds going to relief efforts in Haiti, the 70000 Tons Of Metal Skipper and his crew have organized another signed guitar auction. This time, a signed Dean Michael Schenker Standard electric guitar will be auctioned, and full proceeds of the guitar auction will be donated to poverty and disaster relief efforts in Mexico (via Direct Relief Mexico, a non-profit humanitarian aid organization).
