Gary Richards, aka Destructo, is steadily building on his promise to bring a new ship liner festival experience to fruition. After a modest line-up for his inaugural voyage in 2018, and a year off in 2019, FriendShip returns with an eye-popping 2020 artist billing.
Boys Noize, GRiZ, and Bob Moses are among the bill’s top booked acts. With house veterans AC Slater, Doorly, and Chris Lorenzo on the line-up, along with a stunning showing of bass acts in Charlesthefirst, DUCKY, Lucii, EPROM, and Boogie T, there’s a whole lot of diversity in store for the second annual FriendShip affair. Add to that veteran rappers Busy P and Ty Dolla $ign, along with Billy Kenny, Malaa, Mija, TroyBoi, and Solardo, and fans have a line-up choked full of headlining talent at sea.
FriendShip succeeds Richards’ previous HOLY SHIP! endeavor, which he built from the ground up with his former company, HARD Events, before moving to LiveStyle Entertainment. However, it’s becoming more evident that FriendShip will rival the infamous HOLY SHIP! very soon.
FriendShip’s 2020 edition is set to sail aboard Royal Caribbean’s recently-upgraded Navigator of the Seas, which recently underwent $115 million in renovations. FriendShippers will at sea for four days with land stops at CocoCay in the Bahamas.
FriendShip sets sail January 6 – 10, 2020. View the full lineup below, along with the Friendship 2018 after movie, and purchase tickets online now.
