“Marking our fifth-year sailing, we have prepared an extraordinary adventure for fans, both experience seekers and festival-goers alike. This is going to be a sailing that people wouldn’t want to miss,” said Cyril Francis, Project Director of IT’S THE SHIP and Managing Director of Livescape Singapore.

Featuring secret parties, elaborately themed costume parties and one-of-a-kind private shows, IT’S THE SHIP will spoil its residents with much awaited Gala Night where guests dress to the nines for a swanky themed evening together.

IT'S THE SHIP has featured a multitude of international artists including Dash Berlin, Yellow Claw, David Hasselhoff, Higher Brothers, Showtek, Sander Van Doorn, Kaskade, Lil Jon, Dada Life, CHVRCHES, Basement Jaxx, Carnage, Knife Party, Ferry Corsten, Andrew Rayel, and Far East Movement in the past.

The festival also includes a range of fitness activities such as morning yoga sessions, 3-on-3 basketball, and football. The residents can also enjoy a wide range of recreational options including a variety of pools with six water slides, ping pong tables, a mini golf course, and rock climbing wall.

Stopping over at the tropical island of Phuket, the residents will be able to enjoy the sandy beaches or kick back and relax with a beach-side massage. The stopover gives people a chance to take a break from the activities on board and recharge for the next chapter of the festival.
