Andy pioneered the concept of the festival at sea with The Rock Boat in 2001. Focusing on an immersive experience that combines the best of vacation and music, the maiden voyage was a huge success and set the groundwork for developing innovative, community focused events at sea.
This was the start of the company Sixthman, which has been mixing live music with ocean cruises over the last 15 years. They have charted more than 100 cruise ships and hosted guests on more than 1,000,000 days of vacation. Sixthman guest have experienced world class artists and brand partners such as KISS, Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Florida Georgia Line, Paramore, Zac Brown Band, 311, VH1, and Turner Classic Movies.
Levine’s “tear down the walls” philosophy has changed the way bands, brands, and fans interact, and created a fantastical floating paradise where guest’s delight is priority number one. “We’ve made a strategy of taking such good care of our artists and our guests, that they come back and they bring their friends and their peers with them….We spend money on the experience, the caring and the attention to detail. I love it. It’s what I was born to do.”
Inc. Magazine recognized Sixthman as America’s fastest growing travel company and the 87th fastest growing company across all segments on the Inc. 500 List.
