In 2020, Holy Ship is officially Wrecked, and when it comes to headline performances from across the DJ spectrum, the Insomniac-run organization went way overboard.
In the case of this party, these are all positive adjectives. After eight years at sea, the beloved festival leaves the ship behind and takes over the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. It’s Holy Ship’s way of keeping things fresh and intersting, and when the team brought the idea to artists, the DJs jumped at the oppprtunity.
Holy Ship Wrecked 2020 promises sets from recent Grammy-winner Diplo, modern house hero Chris Lake, French magic maker Madeon, deep house visionary Lane 8, dance-pop prodigy Whethan, dubstep-innovator turned house hero Skream and more. Shipfam favorites Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, A-Trak and 2 Cents will be on the island. Jai Wolf and Big Wild will bring the melodies. Nghtmre and Slander will bring the bass.
Plus, more Billboard Dance favorites, including Tokimonsta, Yung Bae, Whipped Cream, and GG Magree. Stage takeovers include Walker & Royce: Rules Don’t Apply, Snails & 12th Planet Present: The Royal Rumble, Gorgon City: Realm, Fool’s Gold Rap Party, Desert Hearts, Dirtybird Pool Party and more.
If you’re wondering what Holy Ship on an island resort will be like, take a look at Holy Ship partner Cloud9’s other resort events. The new location offers attendees all kinds of expanded ammenities, like bigger rooms (all of which include a personal hot tub), all-inclusive open bar, and daily beach and pool parties, regardless of weather conditions. Food will be served free of charge in many on-site restaurants, as well as offered at pop-up stations around dance floors while waiters brings trays of snacks and cocktails to dancers throughout the party.
Holy Ship organizers promise the communal feel of wandering the ship all hours of the night alongside your best friends and favorite DJs will remain intact. It’s just a bigger space within which to party, no sea-sickness required. While the resort is expansive, capacity is limited to ensure proper room for all aboard, about the same as the former ship.
Tickets for Holy Ship Wrecked 2020 are on sale now. It all goes down Wednesday to Sunday, Jan. 22 to 26.
