Better than: All my pre-Holy Ship!

expectations -- this was pretty special...

Arriving at Port

Everglades on Friday afternoon for embarkation and only the most very

churlish could not have felt a sense of event excitement. Maybe there

was still a sense of kinetic from the previous night's feel-good Mad

Decent pre-party -- which featured somewhat of a coming-of-age

performance from Dillon Francis, a brutal DJ Craze set and a stripped

down Diplo-lead Major Lazer party. Alternatively it's just the

combination of a sense of the unknown and pure expectation of seeing an

impressive array of key electronic artists, private island parties and

the beauty of the Bahamas.
