While aboard the massive hotel on water, electronic music fans will be entertained day and night by acts that will span throughout several stages within the ship along with on board activities and surprises at every port. With port stop in Coco Cay and the Grand Bahama Island attendees will greet production stages a top a beached pirate ship where artists will be arriving via Helicopter throughout the day. Past performances and surprise guests have included Skrillex, Boys Noize, Zedd, Flume, Knife Party, Fatboy slim, Disclosure, Tiesto and Pharell Williams.
The ship will not only offer 24 hour food (as most cruises do) but activities throughout the party. Past activities have included “Henry Fong Holy Aquatic Olympics”, “Laidback Luke’s Not-So-Laidback Kung-Fu”, “Gina Turner’s Yoga” and “A-Trak’s DJ Lessons w/ Special Guest Boys Noize.” The Shipfam will also be submerged to participate in theme nights where guests are encouraged to dress in their most creative costumes. To not feel like a complete degenerate after four days of party, the ship will also host the Positive Legacy non-profit division which will be collecting funds during silent auctions and hosting donation drives for Bahamas Children’s Emergency Hostel in Nassau.
For the past couple of years, HARD events along with music event producers Cloud 9 Adventures and Bowery, has been hosting this festival vacation since 2012. It has grown tremendously in the past couple of years and has continuously sold out out during pre-booking phases. With a waiting list that spans over months, the demand for more of HolyShip! forced creators to expand into two separate weekends- one sailing January 3-6 ; the other on February 10-13.
What separates this cruise from other Electronic party cruises is its diverse lineup. HARD hosts techno, electro, dubstep, trap and other genres from artist curated by Richard Gary -DESTRUCTO. Compared to neighboring EDM cruises- Groove Cruise that has been known to host too much progressive and minimal and Mad Decent Boat Party that has too much of bootyfull mad decent artist songs- HolyShip! offers fresh new parties each hour. Check out the lineup below.
