Holy Ship!, EDM's most in-demand floating festival, has announced its 2017 dates and ticket information. As usual, there is plenty of fanfare for the HARD Events-organized cruise, but this year they have made a few changes, extending the voyage and moving the dates closer together.
In classic DJ fashion, the Holy Ship! voyages will go back-to-back, which will be a challenge to clean and get ready from the first to the second sailing after everything that goes down at sea.
The first Holy Ship! expedition will set sail on Jan 6 from Port Canaveral next to Orlando and return on Jan. 10. In between it will make stops at a privately owned island on Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas, with a day at sea. The extra day added to Holy Ship! will allow for an extra day at sea.
The next voyage will follow the same itinerary, but set sail the day the ship returns on Jan. 10 and then makes it way back to port on Jan. 14. Holy Ship! also nabbed a new vessel for 2017, finding its home on the Norwegian Epic.
As has been customary in the past, the returning attendees titled "shipfam" will receive a pre-sale password for early access booking on April 19 or 20. Once shipfam has had their chance at filling up the ship, first-timers will have a chance to get onto Epic on April 21, pending availability of cabins. All of the ticket information can be found on Holy Ships's website.
This will sell out very quickly well before the lineup is announced this summer. The 2016 lineup included the likes of Kaskade, Porter Robinson, DJ Snake, Chromeo, Boys Noize, Odesza, Dillon Francis, Rustie and Gorgon City.
We are excited to announce the NCL Epic as our new home with b2b sailings in 2017 and an additional night on board! pic.twitter.com/vy8ud5ow55
