Diplo's Mad Decent Boat Party Announces 2014 Dates, 35-Act Lineup, Sailing from Miami

"'Sup, best boat party of your life?"

That's just a supercasual invite from prominent party boy Diplo to go cruisin' aboard the Norwegian Pearl this November with Mad Decent family and friends.

Sailing outta Miami for the Bahamas' Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay, Mr. Dip and crew's ocean-faring, ass-shaking ship will hump across the high seas for five straight days of shows, Q&As, and autograph seshes with famous faces such as Diplo himself, the Major Lazer homies, Borgore, Riff Raff, Dillon Francis, Nadastrom, Flosstradamus, Kill the Noise, and even Miami's own GTA.

Now, the Mad Decent Boat Party won't be cheap: a cabin costs at least five c-notes plus another couple hundred bucks in fees.

But pay up during the pre-sale and you'll get perks like a production panel with bass behemoth and Slow Roast Records co-founder Kill the Noise.

Early buy-in will also earn you a shot at having "Dillon Francis clean your room" or "Nadastrom give you a haircut," enjoying a "coffee break with Zeds Dead," or throwing balls for a "Diplo vs. Flosstradamus bowling match."

Mad Decent Boat Party 2014. Wednesday, November 12, to Sunday, November 16. Norwegian Pearl, boarding at Port of Miami, 1015 N. America Way, Miami. Cabin reservations cost $475 and up plus fees. Visit
