Hard's Holy Ship Cruise Announces Final Lineup and Full Music Schedule

Get Hard 'cause it's almost time to cruise.

Nine months ago, Crossfade reported that the Los Angeles party posse, electronic music festival, and touring club event run by Gary Richards (AKA Destructo) was planning to take its electro steez to the high seas aboard the MSC Poesia, sailing out of Port Everglades in early January 2012.

Just 63 days later, we confirmed the cruise's name (Holy Ship); an initial lineup (Fatboy Slim, Laidback Luke, Diplo, Rusko, A-Trak, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, etc.); and the Hard facts about its kickoff party in Fort Lauderdale, a private show in the Bahamas, and luxurious $1499 double suites.

But the Hard cruise only confirmed its absolutely final party-starting passenger list today. See the cut for the full 35-act musical roster, plus its newly released music and activities schedule.
