Holy Ship! is notorious for selling out in a matter of minutes, and the Norwegian Cruise Lines’ ship turned floating EDM festival is set to do the same with the unveiling of the 2019 lineup.
The two-weekend festival is set to take place with a four night sailing January 5-9, 2019 for the festival’s 12th sailing. It is immediately followed by the three night trip January 9-12, 2019 for its 13th rendition.
Each of the Holy Ship! 2019 sailings will depart from Port Canaveral and chart a course to the Bahamas, with official pre-parties to be scheduled. The itinerary for 12.0 includes two days at Great Stirrup Cay, giving attendees two chances to experience the famed private island parties, followed by a day at sea, before heading home. 13.0 will feature a full day of sailing upon the open seas and a day long party stop at Great Stirrup Cay before heading home.
Vancouver-bred emotive dance auteurs, Tom Howie and Jimmy Valance, better known as Bob Moses, made waves with their debut album, Days Gone By.
Considering the LP’s accessibility, blurring of genres, and the worldwide hit “Tearing Me Up,” it seemed like Days Gone By was next to impossible to one-up. Many were left wondering where the two possibly could go from there.
This seemed like the peak of accessible post-club music, but now Bob Moses is back off their two-year hiatus, and their latest tune is an incendiary slow-burner. The boys kept the coals hot and”Heaven Only Knows” has just re-ignited the flame.
In terms of craft, “Heaven Only Knows” possesses the same mellowness fans have come to love over the years. Cooing vocals are met with brooding, effervescent synths, but this time, they deviate from the formula more than ever before. The track erupts a little past the midway point into an unopposing club-friendly hitter.
Fortunately for fans, it seems “Heaven Only Knows” is just the beginning of what the duo has in store. The track coincides with a full tour announce of which they’ve said they’re taking”loads of new music” on. While a new album is yet to be announced, it might just be what the boys have planned.
Tickets to the North American tour, which are on sale beginning June 8, and more information can be found here.
Costa Rica’s rising tropical festival, Envision, is just weeks away. In its eighth year, the festival continues its mission to awaken human potential with art, spirituality, yoga, music, dance, performance, education, sustainability and fundamental connection with nature.
From Feb. 21-25, thousands will flock to Uvita to experience a stellar lineup of music, which has been announced in full. In addition to headliners Xavier Rudd, Bob Moses, DJ Tennis and more who were announced in August, Envision has revealed the addition of acts like TroyBoi and The Russ Liquid Test to the lineup.
“We really wanted to bring in best in breed artists from every corner of the globe,” says festival co-founder and music director Josh Wendel. “But we also wanted to create a platform for some of the best emerging talent in Costa Rica and its neighbors. In addition to being our most intentional lineup yet, the artists we’ve got coming for Envision 2018 are both world famous and driven to achieve the same impact we want to make in the world. Through language and culture we’re united by the dream we share, and that just makes the experience of coming together on the same dancefloor so much more special.”
Though Envision 2018 is already 70 percent sold out, four-day general admission tickets can still be purchased here.
With four different stages and a lineup that spans across all music tastes, the festival is an internationally acclaimed event that aims to draw in music lovers of all genres. Aside from the music, attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy world-class yoga classes and workshops led by astrologers, activists and more.
Tickets to the festival are on sale now and start at around $300. Learn more at the festival’s website, envisionfestival.com.
International events brand Circoloco got its start hosting a modest Monday morning party at iconic Ibiza club DC-10. Seventeen years later, the brand has become a house and techno mecca, spreading its revered underground spirit and unconventional parties to dance music fans around the world. On top of maintaining its strong presence on the White Isle, Circoloco now hosts residencies all over the globe and, within the last few months, has put on shows everywhere from Los Angeles to NYC to Amsterdam.
While Circoloco can now be considered a globetrotting enterprise, the legendary brand has yet to bring its iconic party to the Dominican Republic – until now. Circoloco will be returning to its beachside roots this December, hosting a stage at Electric Paradise in Punta Cana. As apprehensive thoughts of winter near and festival season comes to an end, the one-day festival represents a final hurray of sorts for avid dance music fans.
Circoloco has enlisted six of its regulars, all of whom embody the essence of today’s underground scene, to play at Punta Cana’s opulent Cap Cana Resort. Festival-goers can expect to see the likes of Jamie Jones, Adriatique, Damian Lazarus, and Martin Buttrich, among others, at what is sure to be another wild and eccentric Circoloco party that showcases the best of underground house and techno.
Taking place in the midst of what could literally be considered paradise, the highly versatile Electric Paradise is a celebration of art, food, technology, and, of course, music. This year’s event will take place on December 17 and will feature artists such as Armin Van Buuren, The Chainsmokers, Bob Moses (Live), and DJ Snake.
