The Ark announces Patrick Topping, Luciano, Nastia, more

111 DJs, 4 stage hosts, 2 voyages…

After its successful maiden voyage last summer, The Ark is set to return this summer with not one but two cruises and two suitably epic line-ups including Booka Shade, Loco Dice, Faithless, Nastia, Patrick Topping and more.

If you’ve never heard of The Ark, it’s a floating festival aboard a luxury cruise ship, Royal Caribbean International’s Vision of the Seas, which will set sail from Barcelona with stops in Sète, Ibiza, Mallorca and then back to Barcelona.

Other welcome changes for this year include extra stops in Mallorca & Séte, and also a longer stopover in Ibiza for extra party time on the island.

Interestingly, each cruise will feature different line-ups, with the first voyage featuring the likes of Booka Shade, Loco Dice, Faithless (DJ set), Nastia, Patrick Topping, Luciano, Nic Fanciulli, Andrea Oliva, Miguel Campbell, Camelphat, Claptone, Yousef and many more.

The second cruise — which sets sail a week later, 3rd September to 7th September — will feature Adriatique, Art Department, Dada Life, Loco Dice, Luciano, Fatman Scoop, Infinity Ink, John Noseda, Kenn Colt, Mystique, Neon, TLP and more.

The Ark is so much more than just amazing parties, though, passengers will also be able to indulge in world-class food and drink, sport and relaxation, beauty and wellness and so much more.

Then there’s discovering the ports and islands where the ship will moor which is also a massive draw for those want to experience the best of what Barcelona and Ibiza have to offer.

The festival’s organisers will be announcing this year’s special guest chefs, mixologists and yoga instructors in the coming weeks, too.

Ticket prices start from €149 per person for the shortest package of two days / one night and from €649 per person for the basic package of five days / four nights. There is also a four days, three nights package available from €549.
