Sven Väth, Ben Klock, Guy Gerber, DJ Tennis, Blond:ish, Martin Buttrich, tINI and Alex Niggemann are among the selectors locked in for sets at at the debut edition of the festival, with more names still TBA. All up, 50 artists will play across five dancefloors over four nights at sea.

Promoters are promising “24-hours nonstop cutting edge electronic music” as well as extra trimmings like art performances, sporting events, swimming pools, tennis courts, a bowling alley and a 4D cinema on top of the tunes.

MDRNTY Cruise sails from Port Genoa on September 16 and stops at Barcelona, Mallorca and Ibiza along the way. If that’s you sold, you can pick up an all-inclusive package on the website now.
