I’ll let you picture yourself chillin’ on the top floor of one of the biggest boats in the world, with the sunlight reflecting on the Mediterranean sea and listening to the world’s finest DJs delivering amazing sets one after each other. Imagine a 96h-long party boat with 7 areas, hosted by the biggest labels & organizers willing to offer you an ultimate experience. Among them, you’ll feel Ibiza vibes, from Pacha to Elrow craziness (see our article about Why you should experience Elrow parties), and the techno overwhelming quality from FACT and the Ministry of Sound. All of them will take care of all the party lovers on the boat ensuring an epic trip. The Ark also collaborates with Belgian clubs Versuz and Kitsch. All of these labels will gather their forces to bring a huge panel of different electronic music influences in order to delight all the purists.
The Ark will take over the Freedom of the Seas cruise ship, one of the jewels from Royal Carribean that was for a long time the biggest boat on the planet. This one will be completely transformed into an enormous club, with pool parties, restaurants, spa and gym installations. You´ll get to spend little holidays in a luxury and comfy frame melted with a brutal line-up.
About the line-up, among the 50 names revealed by the organizers, you’ll get to see Boys Noize, 2manydjs, Claptone, Martin Solveig, Felix da Housecat, Dennis Ferrer, Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed, Sam Feldt, Roger Sanchez and Edu Imbernon but also the finest techno KiNK, Chris Liebing, Matador, Sven Väth, Henrik Schwarz, Stephen Bodzin, Amelie Lens, Gerd Janson, Noir, Andre Buljat or Eagles & Butterflies.
