The International Boatbuilders' Exhibition & Conference teamed up with the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville to bring conference participants a special concert to celebrate the 25th IBEX show.

The "Rock the Yacht" concert lineup will consist of popular rock bands from the 1980s, including the Little River Band, Ambrosia, Player, Stephen Bishop and Robbie Dupree playing nothing but hits from that decade.

The concert will take place at Freedom Hall on Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. after the exhibit hall closes at 6 p.m.

Those who attend IBEX will be able to pre-order tickets for the concert on June 9 and 10 before they go on sale to the general public.

"What better way to celebrate IBEX's 25th show than with a concert with classic rock bands from that era," IBEX show director Anne Dunbar said in a statement. "In addition to gaining access to the ‘Rock the Yacht’ concert, tickets will also provide access to an IBEX-only pre-party before the concert, which will include a DJ, food trucks and cash bars."

The concert event will follow the Bourbon and Brew Happy Hour on the IBEX show floor.

The schedule for Sept. 16 is:

  • IBEX show hours: 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Kentucky Exposition Center
  • Bourbon & Brew Happy Hour: 5-6 p.m. at the exposition center
  • Pre-Concert Party: 6-7 p.m. at the exposition center
  • Rock the Yacht Concert: 7 p.m. at Freedom Hall
