Fatboy Slim, Laidback Luke, Rusko, Steve Aoki Setting Sail Aboard Hard Cruise 2012

There is finally a lineup for the upcoming Hard Cruise -- now cleverly named Holy Ship! -- departing from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on January 6, 2012 and returning on January 9. The four-day cruise will travel Port Lucaya in the Bahamas and a private island.

Official lineup includes Fatboy Slim, Laidback Luke, Diplo, Rusko, A-Trak, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Tommy Lee & DJ Aero, Brondinski, Buraka Som Sistema, Dillon Francis, Doorly, Jason Bentley, Destructo, Gina Turner, Contra, and Mike Deuce. More acts are scheduled to be announced.

The party will start the night before with the official cruise kick-off happening at Revolution Live on January 5. Safe to say some of the acts aboard the cruise will probably be making appearances. No word yet on ticket prices.

There will also be a show on the private island in Bahamas January 8 with Fatboy Slim, Diplo, Buraka Som Sistema, and Dillon Francis. Unfortunately, you've got to be a Holy Ship! attendee in order to take part of it.

Cabin registration starts on June 15 with a required $250 deposit. Cabins start at $449 for a quad and go as high as $1,499 for double suite with balcony. There is also an additional $125 in fees. Hey, nobody said partying on the high seas was going to be cheap. Also, you've got to be 21 and over to take part of the voyage.
