One of the biggest dance fests ever planned for the high seas kicked off yesterday in Fort Lauderdale, and organizers have promised a lively event. The first of its kind Holy Ship! music cruise, as it’s being called, features more than 20 top DJs who are hyped into making it a whole adventure and not just playing a set and hiding out. Announced in June of 2010, the 3-Day Cruise aboard the MSC Poesia, a 93,000-ton luxury cruise liner, features everything from a DJ-led poker tournament to yoga classes.
Organized by three leading event planners: Richards’ Hard Events, the Bowery Presents and Cloud 9 Adventures. Famous DJs invited to this unusual event are Fatboy Slim and former Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. During the voyage the ship will make a stop at a private island in the Bahamas for a beach party. Other DJs taking part in the event include Laidback Luke, Diplo, Rusko, A-Trak, Steve Aoki and Skrillex. Tommy Lee will be also appearing with DJ Aero.
