HARD founder Gary Richards A.K.A. Destructo has hinted at plans to expand the three-night cruise festival Holy Ship! into three sailings. The first Holy Ship! took place as a single voyage three years ago from Miami to the Bahamas, but ticket demand was so high that Richards decided to supplelement the cruise by adding a second trip, making it a bi-annual event. The demand for the rowdiest party on the high seas keeps escalating and Richards has mentioned that a third sailing will take place somewhere in the Mediterranean.
“It’d be pretty similar to what we do now; obviously there’d be a lot more European artists on the boat,” Richards stated in an interview with Revolt TV. “There’s some artists we’ve wanted to have that, scheduling and things, they just can’t make it, so over they’re a lot closer. We haven’t announced it, but we’re working on getting the logistics together to have a third ship go out of there.”
This year’s first Holy Ship! sailing featured such seminal EDM headliners as Flume, Knife Party and Pretty Lights, and artists like Skrillex, Fatboy Slim and DJ Snake top February's bill.
There have been no offical dates for Holy Ship!'s Mediterranean expansion, but EDM.com will provide them as they surface.
