Those among us with a penchant for high seas partying and hard-hitting bleeps and thuds had to be invigorated by the Holy Ship! initial lineup offering last week. On January 6, 2012, Port Everglades will be overflowing with 2,500 cruisers eager to experience a weekend getaway to a private island in the Bahamas with performances between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. every night
So far, the lineup includes Fatboy Slim, Laidback Luke, Diplo, Rusko, A-Trak, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Tommy Lee & DJ Aero, Brodinski, Buraka Som Sistema, Dillon Francis, Jason Bentley, Destructo, Doorly, Gina Turner, Contra, Mike Deuce, and more.
The key portion, in our opinion, is the whole and more bit. Not
to say that the festival formerly known as the Hard Cruise isn't off to a
decent start, but there's a big hole at the top of the site's artists page. Lots of potential beatsmiths could certainly round out this three-day excursion (with a kickoff party at Revolution on January 5), and we'd like to hear some suggestions from you in the comments.
Which artists should Holy Ship! add to its upcoming cruise?
