Flume
The Australian EDM scene repped aboard Holy Ship!!! 2014 with plenty of up-and-coming stars, but one of the clear favorites was Skrillex's latest collaborator, Flume. He didn't wimp out and just do a "DJ Set." He brought his whole set up for a full live performance. The Sydney native's first set in the lounge had the boat abuzz, and his performance on the main deck (though it didn't draw the largest crowd) was surely one of the cruise's most impressive. Massive props to the Aussie beatmaker for bringing it hard. We can't wait for a chance to catch him again. This is definitely his year.

Tiƫsto Shutting Down the Discoteque
So we already gave it up for Mr. Tijs Michiel Verwest, but we're going to have to do it again. The Dutch master reprised his role as special guest for a dark and sexy set at the Discoteque, and the vibes were so massive that he shut down the whole floor. Hundreds of sweaty bodies piled into the intimate space, forcing guards to stand at the entrances and the elevator, pushing back hordes of music fans who were desperate to sneak in and get down. The next scheduled act, Oliver, almost didn't make it through the Discoteque crowd in time to take over DJ-ing duties. We've never seen such a frenzied rush on one stage. Ever.

Meeting Your Favorite DJs
Without a doubt, the most epic thing about being aboard Holy Ship is the opportunity to score an impromptu meet-and-greet with your favorite artists. We saw one fan get his Disclosure vinyl signed. We personally shared a lil' moment with Skrillex, catching Shlohmo rocking it out on the pool deck. Our buddy got to give Zedd a high five. And throughout the cruise, Hard's Gary "Destructo" Richards was approached by tons of fans who stopped by to sing his praises.

For a true EDMer, Holy Ship is an unparalleled paradise. Even in the customs line on the way home, there is ample opportunity to get that photo with your fave DJ. We're all on this boat together. Who will you meet next year?
