Holy Ship 2014

We're on a boat with the highest-paid men in EDM. Madness has already ensued!

 

Follow SPIN's adventures on the high seas as we selflessly embed ourselves at Holy Ship!!! The third annual electronic music cruise thrown by the curatorial wizards at HARD. We embarked from the Port of Miami on Thursday, January 9, and return on Sunday, January 11. In between we stop at two private islands for genuine Bahamian beach parties, plus see the likes of Skrillex, Diplo, Pharrell Williams, Duck Sauce, and Disclosure perform from within the hull of a mega-ship hauling ass through international waters. There are 4,000 revelers, a never-ending buffet, and the music goes until 6 a.m. It's a pirate's life for us.

Day First

Also, Holy Ship guests have one thing your standard EDM festivallers do not: their very own rave cave. And everybody started to decorate their own entrance. But best in show goes to Andy and Chris for illustrating the weekend's inevitable arc using pix of Britney Spears ranging from coquettish (Thursday) to carefree (Friday) to "rageface" (Saturday) to pouty (Sunday).

Diplo is the cruise's first performer, it's his job to aurally propel the ship from its mooring, and people at that time are crowding the bars, clamoring for booze.

Skrillex is playing that awesome "Oh my gosh!", then effective plating Flume. The Dutch mega-DJ Tiësto is revealed to be the surprise secret guest, and what a surprise he is — the living symbol of what HARD events have never been.

Day Second

Of the myriad ways one could choose to deal with Friday morning's party hangover — the most popular being "rage further" —a small group gets it oh-so-right. Rise, shine, hit the buffet for some bacon and eggs, and then ferry out to today's private island for a solid set of sun salutations. Our instructor is New York DJ Gina who by the way is a certified Vinyāsa teacher. She opens with a call to calmness: "Really try to find your inner peace, because there's a lot of noise going on.

Also, at that day everybody admired Disclosure, Chromeo, Dillon Francis and GRiZ.

Day Third

The Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth gently dominates his environment over the beautiful island landscape. Pharrell Williams is very late to the beach party for nearly three hours. Also in that day played Shlohmo, Baauer B2B RL Grime.

Featuring a roster of artists from across the electronic spectrum, the music was spread across four stages and two days, and performed for some 70,000 people. Somewhere between a high school rave and a state fair that you really wouldn’t want to bring your parents to, there were many things in abundance. Among them: syncopated hi-hats, undergarments disguised as clothing, and young people absolutely on one. Or two.
