Friendship Lineup Sails To The Top For Inaugural Voyage!

When news broke last year that Holy Ship captain and pioneer Gary Richards, aka Destructo, would be leaving Live Nation, and subsequently ending his tenure with the cruise ship party that he made a household name, the fans were a bit perplexed and very up in arms. Some pondered if the magnate could fine a new port to dock his skills, and it was soon revealed that yes, yes he could. The Friendship voyage sails December 11th-17th 2018 and we’re shivering with anticipation!

Friendship launched to a massive fanfare, and seeing the lineup, it’s clear that we’re about to sail away to good times once again! From the dreamy vibes of Rüfüs du Sol to techno giants Boys Noize, the frenetic energy of Felix da Housecat, plus the soulful, deep grooves of Claptone, this lineup brings together some of the most storied names in EDM, while still paying homage to the new sound that’s paving the way.

With sets from Drezo, Golf Clap, J.Phlip, Shiba San, and YehMe2, with their raw talent and incredible tracks, round out just some of the absolutely incredible bunch of artists. Not to mention, there is a performance from living legend of burlesque Dita von Teese and an exclusive set from a true electronic music pioneer and rave granddad extraordinaire Giorgio Moroder. This cruise really has something for everyone!

Hopefully our lord and saviour Destructo will be back to hit a sunrise sermon! If anyone’s attended one of those in the past, you know they can be the most fun part of a festival.

Tickets are sold out, but keep your eye on the site for announcements about next year!
