In case you missed it, the world’s 2nd largest EDM cruise festival, and Asia’s largest, It’s The Ship, will be making a return for its 3rd instalment this year.
The 4-day and 3-night floating vacation cum music festival is set to depart from the Marina Bay Cruise Centre in Singapore on 4th November, crossing international waters on the straits of Malacca to the Pearl of the Orient, Penang, before returning to Singapore shores on 7th November.
It is the first time that the festival will set sail for Penang.
Last year’s festival saw some of the world’s biggest EDM headliners perform, with the likes of Kaskade, Showtek, Ferry Corsten, Carnage, Headhunterz, Will Sparks, and Peking Duk joining over 50 other international and regional acts on the line-up. The sold-out event also saw 3,800 fans from across 50 countries rub shoulders with some of EDM’s most recognisable faces.
So the golden question is, “Who will be playing on It’s The Ship this year?”
The 3rd and 2016 instalment of the highly-anticipated festival-cruise,is set to be bigger, splashier with more than 60 acts from around the world, covering multi music genres, with new shows and acts. You’re looking at the likes of Andrew Rayel, Joel Fletcher, David Gravell, MaRLo, Sander van Doorn, Dada Life, Ben Gold, Far East Movement, KhoMha, Knife Party, and more!
