Holy Ship's Gary Richards: Kurt Cobain Might've Gone Electronic Today

Event producer and DJ Gary Richards is in the throes of a busy time. He was sought out by Trent Reznor to put on a string of events across the world to celebrate his latest film composition project, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and he his the mastermind behind the HARD electronic music festivals. The HARD series hits the high seas January 6-9 for the inaugural Holy Ship! festival.

The ship in question is the 2,550-passenger MSC Poesia and the event is a three-night electronic dance party taking place on the floating party vessel. The cruise departs from Fort Lauderdale and makes a stop at a private island in the Bahamas for a beach party. The whole event features artists such as Fatboy Slim, Diplo, Skrillex, Rusko, Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke among many others.
