The FriendShip Music Festival Cruise, which is set to sail from Miami to Belize in January 2024, has announced its lineup of artists, comedians, skaters, and performers. Among them is the queen of burlesque, Dita Von Teese, who will present a special cabaret show called “Shipteese” on the cruise.
The FriendShip Music Festival Cruise is a four-day, three-night floating celebration of music and art, organized by DJ and producer Destructo and his friends. The cruise will feature a variety of genres and styles, from electronic dance music to hip-hop, disco, house, techno, and more. Some of the headliners include Skrillex, Chris Lake, Boys Noize, Bob Moses, Chris Lorenzo, Todd Edwards, Nina Las Vegas, and Nitepunk.
The cruise will also offer a 24-hour party on Harvest Caye, a private island in Belize owned by Norwegian Cruise Line. There, Skrillex will perform an exclusive DJ set, and Destructo will deliver one of his signature “Sunrise Sermon” sets. The island will also host activities such as zip-lining, kayaking, snorkeling, and wildlife viewing.
The cruise will take place on the Norwegian Joy, the largest vessel in the festival’s history. The ship has a capacity of 3,800 guests and features amenities such as a casino, a spa, a water park, a race track, a laser tag arena, and a virtual reality arcade. The ship will also have multiple stages and venues for the festival, such as a theater, a pool deck, a club, and a lounge.
