If you set sail on the maiden voyage of HARD’s HOLY SHIP! you were part of an unforgettable, monumental experience. In a few short days the presale slots sold out almost a year in advance, as old and new sailors yearn for more in 2013. What’s better than a festival at sea?
The ship will set sail to Nassau, the Bahamas, ending with the climactic annual beach party. Today marked the release of the full lineup. Somehow outdoing last year, the bill reflects the superstar sets that Destructo (who will also be in Australia for Stereosonic 2012) has been booking for HARD over the past few years.
This year though a special treat will grace the decks as Justice takes to the seas for the first time. Additionally, hit acts such a Knife Party, Skream & Benga, and Boys Noize (who missed joining in 2012 due to illness) will be virgin pirates aboard the rave ship. And everyone’s favorite West Coast Dirtybirder Justin Martin is returning, this time with his colleague in tow, the Big Birdman himself Claude VonStroke. Two names we don’t see (yet) are Skrillex and Steve Aoki, who’s signature sounds seem at home with the current lineup. In an experience like no other, the glamourous MSC Poesia will be making big waves, leaving a trail of brilliance, booze and bass as the ship heads for the private island rave.

If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet you might be out of luck, but plunder and pillage your way onto this boat if you can, it’s a journey you can’t miss.
