Next month, festival-vacation cruise Shipsomnia will launch its 6-city tour in Asia-Pacific, collaborating with one of the best clubs in Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Bali and Shanghai.
In case you missed it, Shipsomnia is a one-of-its kind, experiential 5-day festival vacation cruise to the hottest destinations in Asia with one of the world’s finest musical sommeliers on the grandiose Costa Victoria that would be propped out with a magical aquatic theme with a steampunk twist, where legends of the sea come to life.
Touted as the “Tomorrowland of the Sea”, the 5D4N cruise will set off from Singapore on 2nd January 2016 to Phuket and Langkawi. Shipsomnia is organised at a cost of about US$2.5 million, and it is expecting some 2,400 people from around the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Shipsomnia will also see a world-class stage production of its 2016 theme – The Search For Lost Rhythms – collaborating with some of the best artistes and stage production teams from Belgium and South Africa.
A prequel to Shipsomnia, the week-long club tour will kick off on 15th May in Hong Kong at Fly; 16th May in Jakarta at Blowfish; 20th May in Bali at VH (Velvet & Hypnotized); 22nd May in Singapore at kyo; 23rd May in Bangkok at Ku De Ta.
Note: The gig in June at M2 in Shanghai will feature another artiste. To be announced soon.
Performing at these Shipsomnia-club collab gigs is Stanton Warriors (UK), one of the hottest music producers today, famed for their edits/remixes of cutting edge sounds from underground house to abstract hip hop and everything in-between, into a melting pot of low-down booty electro punkishness.
Psst. Also, guests to each Shipsomnia’s club tour gig stand to win a Double Occupancy Interior Class Cabin (worth US$1,778) for two. All you need to do is register at the door on event night at the club ;)
Each club will also host 2 parties at Shipsomnia (2nd – 6th January 2016 on the Costa Victoria) and would be represented by their resident DJs, who would present their unique brand/sound and club culture, alongside global acts that would be announced at a later date.
UPDATE (18th May, 7am):
Festival-vacation cruise Shipsomnia will host the finale of its 2015 6-city Asian Club Tour in Shanghai on 11th June at the iconic M2 club, featuring Australian phenomenon NERVO. Currently ranked #21 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs global poll, NERVO is one of the world’s most sought-after songwriters and artistes who have performed across the globe.
You may remember the NERVO girls from our exclusive interview with them here ;)
