With the festival set to attract regional and international music-lovers for its inaugural sail, IT’S THE SHIP embarks from Singapore on 21 November and will return to shores on the 25 of November via the straits of Malacca. International and regional headliners will perform on multiple stages full steam ahead in a first-ever journey of this magnitude in Asia. As a key highlight, the cruise liner will dock in the tropical island of Langkawi for a star-studded day beach party of epic proportions on November 23.
SBCR (The Bloody Beetroots), Chvrches and Lil Jon among the acts set to play at Asia’s largest festival at sea
A registration system, housed at www.itstheship.com, is now in place in order to encourage mixed diasporas on board the cruise. The cabins, for all five days and four nights on board IT’S THE SHIP will range from USD $430 (early bird price) to USD4,000 per person for the wickedly luxurious ‘royal suite’ which boasts a grand piano as part of the amenities. Prices are also inclusive of main meals, selected non-alcoholic beverages and free usage of most of the ship’s facilities.
Response to pre registration, an option that launched just seven days ago, has proved extremely positive with over 10,000 people registering their interest to purchase cabins on board IT’S THE SHIP. The floating music festival is expected to attract over 3,800 fans of which 60% are expected to come from outside of Singapore. Participation is expected from countries including Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Hong Kong, and even from Europe and the USA.
