The sixth rendition of Asia’s Largest Festival at Sea, IT’S THE SHIP, will be setting sail from the 13th to 15th November!
This year delivers the first ever non-stop Shipcation where your only ports of call are the round-the-clock, never-ending experiences across the two nights and three days.
Alongside classics like the ONEsie Party and FOAMO, IT’S THE SHIP will also be throwing the new FYRE Fan Club and the Asian debut of the Heartfeldt Pool Party. Each experience comes with its own stellar lineup with headliners like breakthrough UK tech house duo Solardo and Sam Feldt coming through with tropical beats.
So, music fans and lifestyle enthusiasts, come one, come all to the Shipcation of a lifetime!
- FYRE FAN CLUB
The best re-enactment of the fiery fiasco, FYRE FAN CLUB is ready to host festival goers in “luxury yurts” and serve up the iconic sandwiches that stunned the world. Quite a stark contrast to IT’S THE SHIP’s luxurious venue of the dreamy Genting Dream 5 star accommodation and round-the-clock dining, huh?
The FYRE gets hot as IT’S THE SHIP does not disappoint with the hip hop acts who heat up the party. Amping up the stage will be Singapore’s very own viral rap sensations Fariz Jabba and Yung Raja, who will be spinning a skilful mix of trap, hip hop, and R&B beats. Coming from across the Causeway, Malaysia’s No. 1 rap icon Joe Flizzow also brings the hip hop that put Malaysia hip hip on the map. Dutch duo Irwan + Rico Green will be hyping the crowd with Irwan’s unique turntablist stylings that are legendary in Europe and Rico’s energetic vocals.

3. Sleepless Society
Firstly, who sleeps on IT’S THE SHIP? That would just be weird. Giving the restless night owls somewhere to go, IT’S THE SHIP presents Sleepless Society and it’s about to be “One Hell of A Party”.
Since sticks and stones may break bones but whips and chains excite us, Sleepless Society brings sexy back and awakens Shipmates’ inner goddess and “Mr Grey”. Not for the faint-hearted, the party features just a few cuffs and collars, along with some gear to keep party people “protected”.
Going Fifty Shades Darker this time, the star of the show is the cruise’s very own dominatrix who will charm or punish, depending on the shipmates’ desires. As always, dress to impress! So, pack your garters, fishnets, corsets, suspenders & harnesses (for the men); think lace and leather – there is no such thing as over the top on IT’S THE SHIP!
Bringing the house down will be the techno house of Xu from Kuala Lumpur and progressive house from Farid of Iran.
