There has been four sailings since Asia’s biggest cruise festival IT’S THE SHIP made its debut in 2014, and last year’s unforgettable instalment further reinforced its success. 2017’s IT’S THE SHIP saw 4,000 shipmates from over 88 countries party like never before, and for 2018, the organisers The Livescape Group has just announced something even bigger.

Surprise, surprise – IT’S THE SHIP will be expanding to the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan! What better way to celebrate the brand’s 5th year anniversary than to launch a brand new cruise festival experience? In partnership with J Co. Ltd, this will mark the first time the maiden voyage will be departing from a different destination outside of Singapore.

Its past events have seen some of the world’s biggest international and regional artistes including Yellow Claw, Krewella, Dash Berlin, Chvrches, Higher Brothers, Knife Party, Aly & Fila, Far East Movement and more, and the music cruise festival will continue to set sail from Singapore sometime in November this year.

No other details have been released about IT’S THE SHIP JAPAN just yet, but be sure to access for the latest updates should you be interested. PS: Register now for a chance to win a free cabin onboard! Alternatively, pre-register for IT’S THE SHIP via
