Dancing, lots and lots of dancing
Before you take into consideration the fact that you'll be on a cruise ship, yeah, a fucking great big cruise liner, it's a festival first and foremost. As with any festival, the most important factor is the music and the line-up is packing a serious punch. There's a clear focus on stripped back tech, house and techno with a few nice surprises thrown in. There are the big dons on show like Papa Sven, Ben Klock, Dixon and Jamie Jones but they're coupled with a satisfying array of underground artists like Dewalta b2b Mike Shannon, Bill Patrick and Dana Ruh. There's five stages that we're told will roll throughout and there's even a Fuse London showcase on one day, a prospect we're really excited about. As far as line-ups go, it'll keep anyone with an urge to dance as happy as can be.
