The ship is setting sail from June 11th to 18th 2017 and travels to Rome, stopping to party on the way on Greek islands Santorini and Mykonos, as well as in the South of France, before finally returning to Italy.

On top of this, much loved London party people Abode are also involved and will bring the sort of up-front DJs and producers that have made it one of the most talked about names on the scene. Add in to this the colourful carnival crew from Barcelona that is Elrow and their headliner Dela Swing, and Tinie Tempah’s Disturbing London, and between them you have a mix of the hottest parties who are known for their euphoric events as well as special sound tracks and unrivalled production.

Hot Creations associate Patrick Topping plus very special grime star Tinie Tempah and his Disturbing London will also bring a guest that has made it one of the foremost labels, brands, events and agencies in all of grime.
