HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKEDRukes III

While HOLY SHIP! won’t be setting sail in 2020, it’ll sure still be getting down. The revered HARD Events maritime festival will anchor itself in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana next year, January 22-26 with a whole new name: HOLY SHIP! WRECKED.

Casting a wide and prominent net, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED has secured Diplo, Lane 8, Claude VonStroke, and Madeon to top its astounding 2020 roster, while Chris Lake, NGHTMRE & Slander, and Jai Wolf comprise what one could hardly call an undercard. Distinguished names from across the house and bass-abundant spectrum speckle the robust roster, from 12th Planet to TOKiMONSTA, Whethan to What So Not, the agenda seems to extend something irrefutable for every electronic taste preference. Up-and-coming contenders like Dom Dolla, Sonny Fodera, and ODESZA-championed MEMBA offer the lineup a fresh-faced appeal as well.

Not only is the lineup set to be one of the most in-depth throughout the HOLY SHIP! timeline, but the shift in format will offer #Shipfam an event that is both excitingly new and refreshingly familiar. Cloud 9 Adventures,the lead company behind the ship experience, has been producing events in concert with the Punta Cana resort for many years already and will bring that expertise to HOLY SHIP! WRECKED .

Just as on HOLY SHIP!, the resort will only be open to attendees throughout the festival. Seasoned Shipfam will still receive their robes as well as their OG party as fans and artists live together for a weekend in paradise:

We are shipfam for life, so we couldn’t miss out on this! – Gorgon City

Time to start the search for buried treasure. We be shipwrecked this year me maties! – Claude VonStroke  

When it comes time for the artists to perform, there will be nine different areas for music spread throughout the resort. With the increased amount of space, the overall production will be at a much higher level and each area will maintain a specific sonic identity. From daily pool parties to a 1,000 person-capacity club to a sunrise set on the beach, artists will be spinning multiple sets in a variety of environments to satisfy the astute tastes of Shipfam.

Plus, the extensive amenities provided both on-site and in the immediate area will allow for a much broader range of artist involved activities which will be announced soon.

Attendees of HOLY SHIP! WRECKED will have 24-hour access to the resort’s private beach. Every room includes its own balcony, hot tub, free Wi-Fi, and is roughly three times the size of rooms on the boat. There are nine restaurants around the resort offering everything from sushi to pizza, and just like on ship, food and drinks (including alcohol) are all-inclusive.

In terms of recreation outside of music, there is mini-golf, a lazy river, a waterslide, and much more on property. For an extra charge, attendees can take their experience to the next level with a full 18-hole golf course, excursions on dune buggies and ATV’s, a 65,000 square-foot spa, scuba diving, and various other activities that only a world-class island resort can offer.

Pre-sale for HOLY SHIP! WRECKED starts next Monday, July 29, and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday, July 31 at 11 am PT, available here, along with general festival information.

Good Morning Mix: Take a face-melting stroll through Wax Motif’s House of Wax #026Wa Motif

In recent years, Australia has proven a bottomless breeding ground for inventive electronic artistry. Flume, Alison Wonderland, What So Not, and Anna Lunoe are just a fun-sized chunk of the abundant Aussie eminence molding and maestroing the electronic space from global vantage points. Wax Motif, however, has flown relatively under the radar until recently, despite wide-reaching support from his counterparts and releases on upper-echelon imprints like Tchami’s CONFESSION, AC Slater’s Night Bass, Tiësto’s Musical Freedom, and Destructo’s All My Friends.

Motif’s House Of Wax SoundCloud mix series sees the “Kush Groove” artist, known for his disco-driven, G-House-drenched strain of four on the floor, compile his quixotic tastes in hour-long segments. In the 26th installment, Motif summons the songs of the hour, with piping hot new offerings from Dog Blood, Fisher, Black Caviar, Chris Lake, UMEK, Eli Brown, Matroda, and Sonny Fodera. Now you know: When the wax starts drippin’, it’s time to wake up and shake it.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Alesso links with TINI for a mellow summer tune, “Sad Song,” and Botnek ramps up the intensity on “Jiffy.” Haywyre takes on Martin Garrix’s “Summer Days” in a delightful, piano-infused remix, and DJ Snake taps J. Balvin and Tyga for the feel-good “Loco Contigo.” Sonny Fodera’s crafted a remix of Dom Dolla’s “Take It,” and Merk & Kremont bring the heat on “KIDS.” Conro takes to Monstercat for a new original, “All I Want,” and Uproot Andy offers a spicy remix of Sofi Tukker and Bomba Estero’s “Playa Grande.” SYN brings the bass on “Danger,” and Pleasurekraft doesn’t hold back on a rework of Adam Beyer, Layton Giordani, and Green Velvet’s “Space Date.” Ephixa and Heartful have delivered some synthwave goodness on “Sundance,” and Justin Caruso continues his slew of edits with a new combo of Brohug vs. Valentino Khan, “DatDatDat.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

An annual highlight at California’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival, Do LaB‘s carefully curated musical stage coalesces expert electronic acts, for a high caliber lineup within the festival’s larger billing. A cornerstone of the Coachella experience, Do LaB will present its themed stage at the 2019 edition of the multi-weekend affair for the 15th year. The longevity of the Do LaB stage at Coachella evidences Do LaB’s consistent ability to wow Coachella crowds with its collection of artists, and judging by the newly unveiled lineup, 2019 will be no exception.

Do LaB’s lineup joins noteworthy up-and-comers with established industry greats, for a balanced mix of novel and veteran acts. The lineup accordingly touts Dom Dolla, Dombresky, Escapade (a duo comprised of Dirtybird Collective label mates, Walker & Royce and Ardalan), The Floozies, Mr. Carmack, Sonny Fodera, Dance SpiritPete Tong performing with a yet-to-be-named guest, and more.

While the 2019 lineup touts a wealth of stellar electronic entities, those familiar with Do LaB’s history of production know the expression “expect the unexpected” to be salient advice. Do LaB routinely surprises attendees with unannounced sets from dance favorites, in past years bringing the likes of Skrillex, Major Lazer, and Richie Hawtin to the stage without much advance notice.
