Blazing a party path across the Caribbean, Holy Ship! has defined and birthed a generation of dance fans and artists, who came of age on the water, and share a common bond that’s spread around the globe.
Following the 2020 debut of resort based Holy Ship! Wrecked in the Dominican Republic, the 2021 edition takes over Hard Rock Riviera Maya Resort on the shores of Mexico for four days of music, activities, and luxe accommodations, December 3-7.
Those who experienced the first Holy Ship! Wrecked, can attest to the party convenience and lavishness of the all-inclusive, full resort takeover. Hard Rock Riviera Maya will bring the concept to new heights with six stage environments including beachfront and club venues, premium 24/7 bars, and a range of activities all within steps of luxury hotel rooms throughout the intimate resort footprint.
The 2021 edition will see Holy Ship! continue to bring artists together across genres and scenes around the globe. Alison Wonderland will make her much anticipated return to the party, celebrated by electronic fans for her unadulterated mixing of styles in high-impact DJ sets. Live improvisation wiz Marc Rebillet will take over the event with his outrageous performance, while Fools Gold boss A-Trak retains his throne as the event’s turntablist extraordinaire. Moody electro-pop icons Madeon and ZHU will also make their return.
All shades of House music will be on display in true Ship fashion, led by global superstar Seth Troxler, fan-favorite and Holy Ship! OG Justin Martin, Repopulate Mars leader Lee Foss, the Desert Hearts crew, deep disco from Folamour and Dirtybird prince Ardalan. Chris Lake is back with a repertoire of classics in tow for his renowned Black Book Records sunrise set.
Bass music will continue its triumph under Carribean skies once again with new-age dubstep king Subtronics, SMOG LA legend 12th Planet, throw-down queen GG Magree, low-end funk lord Boogie T, and beatsmith Charlesthefirst.
As the tides of the global dance sounds ebb and flow, so does Holy Ship!‘s inclusive curation, evident in techno and melodic house’s spotlight at this year’s event. Hard hitting European titan Charlotte De Witte will make her much anticipated debut, leading a welcomed underground invasion. She will be joined in the deep-end by Anjunadeep star Ben Böhmer, Italian Drumcode upstart Enrico Sangiuliano, and forward-thinking tech-house riser Rebuke.
Signature branded parties remain a centerpiece of the Holy Ship! Wrecked experience with blow out soirées from Ardy Pardy, Anjunadeep, Black Book Records, Cyclops Recordings, Desert Hearts, Factory 93 Experience and Repopulate Mars.
The musical journey of Holy Ship! Wrecked will transport fans from sunset to sunrise, flowing between six stage environments from Heaven Beach to the Main Stage, poolside pop ups to the Heaven Club (with a pool in the middle of the dance floor!) and two other late night venues to keep the party going. Plus Shipfam can expect all the extra curricular activities the event is famous for – DJ workshops, beach games, OG Party, and many more surprises captained by fan-favorite artists.
Resort amenities will take their headlining slot too – with nine all-inclusive restaurants, complimentary craft cocktail & tequila bars, twenty-four hour room service, waterpark, zipline, extreme sports and fitness center, making this a truly worry free, action-packed experience. Those looking for R&R can spend the day being pampered at the Spa and Salon or kicking back in their own private hot tub and balcony before getting back out on the dancefloor.
Fans looking to give back can link up with Positive Legacy on humanitarian and environmental efforts. Positive Legacy has made an impact in the Riviera Maya region by providing emergency hunger relief, medical and school supplies, building playgrounds and community gardens, extensive beach cleanups, and improving the infrastructure of the largest turtle sanctuary in the Yucatan.
