THE ARK Announces Two Cruises & Full Lineup with Luciano, Nastia, Nic Fancuilli, and More

As the 2018 edition gets closer, THE ARK has now unveiled its final full lineup, featuring a massive and impressive roster of 111 DJs over four stages hosted by 15 leading dance brands.

The names on the line-up are completely different for both departures (from August 30 to September 3 and September 3 to 7), so guests can choose either one. Each offers a mix of established names and young talents featuring a mix of names such as Booka Shade, Loco Dice, Faithless (DJ set), Nastia, Patrick Topping, Luciano, Nic Fancuilli, Andrea Oliva, Miguel Campbell, Camelphat, Claptone, Yousef and many many more.

This 2018, THE ARK is focusing on a “mature sound”, so a wide selection of electronic music genres are addressed, with extra attention to house and deep-house. These styles perfectly match the intimate club spirit of the four different stages spread across the stunning Vision of the Seas cruise ship, including an impressive open air stage on the upper deck around the pool.

Those who opt for the first sailing on August 30 will have names such as Booka Shade, Camelphat, Claptone, Nic Fanciulli, and Patrick Topping, with a heavy dose of retro from Sister Bliss. There will also be a lot of Belgian DJ stars on board including Buscemi, Sven van Hees and Yves Deruyter and the “young gods” like Curtis Alto and Sem Thomasson.

Passengers who opt for the second sailing on September 1 will be graced by DJs like Adriatique, Art Department, Dada Life, Loco Dice, Luciano, and THE ARK’s very own Henri PFR. These are assisted by the “hit machines” such as Fatman Scoop and Infinity Ink. The Belgian sound will also make its presence felt with John Noseda, Kenn Colt, Mystique, Neon, TLP, and more.

The ARK consists of more than just parties for this sensational 2018 edition: good food and drink, sport and relaxation, beauty and wellness and discovering the ports and islands where the ship will moor are also an integral part of the experience. Our special guest chefs, mixologists and yoga instructors will be announced next week to add even more temptation to the trips.

Ticket prices start from €149 per person for the shortest package of 2 days / 1 night and from €649 per person for the basic package of 5 days / 4 nights. There is also a 4 days, 3 nights package available from €549. More information on tickets and other details can be found at THE ARK website.
