Wed 19th Dec, 2012 News 2762 viewsin
Chances are, you’re not one of the 2,500 punters counting down the days until Holy Ship! sets sail. With tickets to the second edition of the floating festival selling out in 28 hours and leaving a 10,000 strong wait list in its wake, the one-of-a-kind event doesn’t have any shortage of aspirational attendees. But hey, just because we can’t actually be there doesn’t mean we can’t torture ourselves with the set times, which HARD Events have just released.
Predictably, it’s looking damn good. As well as sets from big names like Knife Party, Boys Noize and Major Lazer, Holy Ship! boasts a scavenger hunt hosted by Diplo, “Professor” A-Trak’s DJ lessons, a Zedd-led poker tournament and the Second Annual Dillon Francis Single Malt Golf Tournament. Then, of course, there’s the stop at a private island in the Bahamas, three days sailing the Caribbean on a luxury liner and tunes ‘til 6am.
Rounding the schedule out is back-to-back sets from some regular partners in crime, Gallic dream team Brodinski and Gesaffelstein and dubstep dons Skream and Benga. Then there’s appearances from Justice, Digitalism and Tommy Trash, a designated artist autograph slot, a couple of big themed bashes, yoga with Gina Turner and twister with Oliver. Sickening, isn’t it?
For the lucky ones, the party kicks off on January 4 from Florida, with the boat docking on January 7 at the aforementioned private island. Check out the set times below and if you really want to kick the crippling jealousy into gear, have a look at last year’s recap video.
