“One of the key talking points from the fans who attended last year’s festival was the fact that they not only got to see their favourite acts perform live but they also got to interact with the artistes in person over the five-day period. One key consideration we take when booking acts for It’s The Ship is we tend to book acts that are more outgoing and sociable because we want them to interact with the fans not just through their music but through the other activities onboard the cruise as well, and because of the laidback, vacation-like atmosphere, it was very possible”, Muhammad Iqbal, Group Chief Executive Officer of The Livescape Group said.
The phase one artiste lineup for It’s The Ship 2015 will be revealed in May.
It’s The Ship 2014 featured acts including Dash Berlin, Lil Jon, Chvrches, Sasha Grey, Basement Jaxx, and over 30 other international and regional acts perform over 5 days and 4 nights of the cruise’s duration.
