Holy Ship! is not your childhood’s family cruise. That is unless you’re the offspring of veteran Fat Boy Slim (who happens to be DJing at this year’s edition).

Now, in it’s sixth year and eighth and ninth editions, the electronic music festival on the high seas is back and bigger than ever with back-to-back four-night sailings of Norwegian Cruise Line’s “Epic,” during the first two weeks of 2017.

Holy Ship! 8.0 (January 6-10, 2017) will be headlined by DJ Snake, Duke Dumont, A-Trak and Marshmello. Highlights aboard 8.0 include Emoji and Game Night theme nights, dance parties with Dirtybird Records, Boys Noize Records and Ed Banger.

Holy Ship! 9.0 (January 10-14, 2017) heads out with Fatboy Slim, Griz, Claude VonStroke, and Maya Jane Coles as headliners. Highlights for 9.0 include Studio 54 and Friday, the 13th theme nights, dance parties with Maya Jane Coles and DJ Tennis, plus activities such as Slushii Social, Night Bass Bingo, Fat Boy Slim Smile High Games hosted by Destructo, Bump hosted by Herobust and Frick Pong with Getter.

I don’t speak EDM-ese so I have no idea what all that means, but here’s a recap video of the 2016 to get a taste.
