Holy Ship Expands to Two Cruises for 2015

Holy Ship!!!!

During our time aboard the 2014 EDM cruise, we here at Crossfade spoke with Destructo, AKA Gary Richards, the captain of all things Hard, who indicated that his annual high-seas voyage just might attempt to expand with two cruises for 2015.

"I want more people to be able to experience Holy Ship, but the goal is to grow and still keep it dope and special," Richards told us.

And today, Hard Events, Cloud 9 Adventures, and The Bowery Presents all confirmed that Holy Ship "will return next year with not one but two cruises."

After this year's sold-out trip, Holy Ship's expansion was essentially inevitable.

"I was saying to people," Destructo said, "the first night of Holy Ship!!! 2014: 'Of the 20 years I've been doing events, I've never seen people go that crazy. They were fucking having it.'"

In short, it was nearly foretold that Hard would invite "new cruisers to join [next year's] Holy Ship family" and discover "what OGs, also known as #ShipFam, have known from the start."

For 2015, both editions of Holy Ship will sail from Port Miami aboard the MSC Divina and steam out to sea toward the Bahamas.

Of course, Ship Fam and other returning shippers will get dibs on 2015 bookings. But "first timers will be able to book their cabins in early March," insist the Hard crew.

All other details of Holy Ship!!!! remain secret.

But as Destructo says: "You always think, Well, how can I make it better or top it and still keep the vibe? What other interesting things and new artists can you book?"

Holy Ship!!! 2015. Saturday, January 3, to Tuesday, January 6, 2015, and Wednesday, February 25, to Saturday, Feburary 25. MSC Divina, boarding at Port of Miami, 1015 N. America Way, Miami. Visit holyship.com.
