Holy Ship announces on-board and private island party lineups; reveals official mixtape
Kicking 2014 off right only requires two things this year: a ticket to HARD‘s Holy Ship and your sea legs. The third annual cruise festival has announced party line ups that will keep guests occupied throughout the days and nights of the event as the cruise liner sets sail from Miami and heads through areas of the Bahamas. January 9th marks Holy Ship’s official cast off, and it wouldn’t be a proper celebration without being accompanied by a launch party to match.
The first party theme focuses around Los Angeles-based labels Body High and WeDidIt, featuring Samo Sound Boy, Jerome LOL, Ryan Hemsworth, a DJ set from Shlomo, and unannounced special guests, all aboard the MSC Divina. The following day welcomes the Boysnoize Records party to the Black & White Lounge of the MSC Divina with performances from Strip Steve, Djedjotronic, Destructo and BNR front-man Boys Noize himself. January 10th also rings in the first Holy Ship private island beach party: guests are invited to retire from the cruise liner for an evening with Gorgon City, Destructo, Armand van Helden, Disclosure and Boys Noize on the beach of Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. The party is far from over by January 11th, which features not one, not two, but three separate themed parties. The third annual Fool’s Gold Rap Party returns to the MSC Divina with a line up of signature trap and bass flair DJs: The Boogieman (a Brodinski hip-hop set), Green Lantern, Just Blaze, RL Grime, Baauer and A-Trak. Right around the bend, the Divina will also host the Destructo and Friends Party with French Fries, Jerome LOL, Amine Edge & Dance, Oliver, Alex Metric, Destructo, Brodinski, Skream, a DJ set from Chromeo and a ‘very special secret guest.’ The final beach party lands on the beach of Coco Cay in the Bahamas, closing out Holy Ship with Ryan Hemsworth, Dillon Francis, A-Trak, Diplo, Skrillex, and a guest appearance from producer and singer Pharrell Williams.
