Asia’s largest festival at sea has just seen its 4th and most successful edition to date!
The festival hosted 4,000 shipmates for energetic performances by over 80 artists on board, as well as a host of fun side activities including everything from morning yoga sessions with Tigerlily to sporting games of soccer with the Playboy Thailand Bunnies. It’s The Ship 2017 also saw standout performances by headliners Yellow Claw and Krewella.
The 2017 edition of It’s The Ship took place over 4 days, upon the newly made Genting Dream cruise ship, captained by none other than Tyson Beckford. This year’s ticket sales reached record highs, with festival goers traveling not only from Asia, but from over 88 countries across the world, with Australia, USA, and Germany scoring in the highest ticket sales, alongside the local markets of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and Japan.
Since its inception, It’s The Ship has been evolving with every passing year, with organizers Livescape Group consistently providing one eclectic lineup after another, the likes of which have never been seen before in Asia. This year’s festival raised the bar even higher in terms of selectively curated topflight talent from around the world.
The Crown Stage witnessed headline performances by EDM power duos Krewella and Yellow Claw on Friday and Saturday nights, with other crowd favorites like Peking Duk, DJ Craze, Third Party, and Tigerlily keeping the party going until sunrise. In accordance with their agenda of promoting South East Asian artists, Livescape represented regional talent with acts like Bangkok Invaders, Joe Flizzow, and Shigga Shay hoisting the flag for Thai, Malaysia, and Singapore.
It’s The Ship has always been more than just a music festival, with various fun side activities for patrons to enjoy in their downtime- and this year was no exception! From mini golf to rope course, and two shows from legendary male strip troupe The Chippendales, It’s The Ship truly was the cruise ship of dreams! It wasn’t all partying on the sea, however. With a stop off in Phuket, Thailand, shipmates had a chance to take the party onto dry land at the Kudo Beach club, and try their hand at beer yoga before getting back onboard for the return voyage to Singapore.
As if the idyllic scene was lacking in romance, the incredible weekend at sea also saw a couple get engaged on Saturday night! There were also six shipmates who got their very own It’s The Ship logo tattoos, securing their place at the 2018 edition of the festival.
Pre-registrations for next year’s party are open now at the festival’s Official Website. Book yours now!
