Back for its third edition in 2016, IT’S THE SHIP, Asia’s largest electronic dance music (EDM) festival on board the luxurious Royal Caribbean cruise-liner will set sail for its round trip from Singapore on Nov 4 to Penang, before returning to our shores on Nov 7.
They’ve recently released the full line up—and it’s massive. The four-day floating festival will be captained by American Baywatch actor David Hasselhoff aka The Hoff, and will feature more than 60 international and local acts, including EDM royalties Sander van Doorn, Andrew Rayel and Australian duo Knife Party.
Dutch house duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano will also be presenting their concept show, Sexy by Nature, for the first time in Asia, alongside Asian-American hip-hop group Far East Movement, local music producers Shigga Shay and MYRNE. This year, It’s The Ship will also roll out the first of themed nights on multiple stages, so you can definitely expect to forgo your sleep on this cruise.
Aside from the live performances, there are also 17 bars, club and lounges, as well as 10 pools and whirlpools, for you to chill out with a cold beer in hand. Cabins prices start from US$588 ($792) per person, for a four-person interior cabin.
