HARD Events, the producers of HARD SUMMER and HOLY SHIP!, have released the official video of HOLY SHIP! The video is a breathtaking visual recap of the inaugural HOLY SHIP!—the world’s largest electronic music cruise presented by HARD Events, Cloud 9 Adventures and The Bowery Presents. HOLY SHIP! completed its maiden voyage January 6-9, 2012, with almost 3,000 fans aboard the MSC Poesia, a 93,000-ton world-class cruise liner equipped with modern amenities to delight every passenger. HOLY SHIP!! will return in 2013. HARD enthusiasts can pre-book for next year’s cruise by placing a $250 deposit per cabin starting today on www.holyship.com. The video opens with the original track “LA Funky” by DESTRUCTO (Gary Richards, the mastermind behind HARD) which is set for release on Boys Noize’s BNR TRAX label later this year.
The three-day tour, from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, to Port Lucaya and a private island in the Bahamas, is considered a life-changing experience by both artists and fans. Artists who appeared on the maiden voyage of HOLY SHIP! included Fatboy Slim, Laidback Luke, Rusko, Diplo, A-Trak, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Tommy Lee & DJ Aero, Brodinski, Buraka Som Sistema, Gesaffelstein, Justin Martin, Zedd, DJ Craze, Dillon Francis, Destructo, Danny Brown, Dave Nada, Egyptrixx, Rory Phillips, Club Cheval, Jason Bentley, Posso, Doorly, Oliver, Gina Turner, Nick Catchdubs, Arthur Baker, Contra and Mike Deuce. There were special themed parties with the likes of Fools Gold, Dance Right and Paris Social Club.
