Holy Ship! is one of the most legendary electronic music festivals around today, and not just because it’s the only one to take place on a cruise ship sailing the Caribbean. Every year attendees praise the free-spirited onboard culture that results in spontaneous b2b performances from their favorite artists that they never thought they’d see play together.
These impromptu parties have been known to spring up as late (or early) as 6am and last as long as the DJs can go. Legendary unplanned b2bs from years past include Getter and josh pan’s “DJing On Acid” set, Louis The Child, Big Gigantic, Slander, Ghastly, Jai Wolf and Manila Killa’s epic two-hour set, and the truly insane five-hour b2b from Herobust, Jauz, Kayzo, Ookay, Getter and Slushii.
It seems that Holy Ship 10.0 was just as packed with unexpected performances as we saw tweets from artists and audience members roll in listing artists we never thought would play together. We’ve put together a list of the b2bs below with crowd/artist videos on the ones that were lucky enough to get recorded. Stay tuned for updates as soon as these sets hit SoundCloud. Enjoy!

First day on holy ship is a nutshell— Yultron (@yultron) January 7, 2018
- @KayzoMusic poked me in the right eye cuz it was dark
- during our b2b he does his gorilla spin and karate chopped me in the right ear
- woke up feelin like a stroke survivor blind and deaf on one side
- there’s no sushi on board.
