The debut of the annual Shipsomnia, organised by Singapore-based lifestyle and entertainment outfit Mad Fresh Events comprising professionals in the travel and entertainment industry from Asia-Pacific, Europe and the United States, was conceptualised more than a year ago.
The 5 day – 4 night cruise will set off from Singapore on January 2, 2016, to Phuket and Langkawi.
Mad Fresh CEO and Shipsomnia’s co-founder Alessandra Maderni says, “The idea behind Shipsomnia was to create an original music festival cruise concept like no other and is unique to Asia. Many festival cruises follow the same format, and it’s easy to fall into the trap of yet another pirates or sailor theme.
“We want to bring it to a whole new level to the likes of Tomorrowland of the sea in terms of Shipsomnia’s storyline. On of the main objectives is for people to experience it in a fun and creative way.
“anyone can hire a line-up DJs, and while a good music line-up is important, the key is in creating a wow factor that sets it apart from the rest.”
Shipsomnia is organised at a cost of about US$2.5-million, and it is expecting some 2,400 people from around the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
Jay Slangen, Mad Fresh Events’ creative director and Shipsomnia co-founder, adds: “We expect to see a core audience from Singapore, especially professionals aged between 25 and 40, with a penchant for music, partying, travel and are looking for something more sophisticated.
“We also want to bring like-minded people together, or whom we call Shipsomniacs, in a fun family-like community with music and friendship to a positive, magical experience.”
In May, fun-seekers can expect a multi-club tour of Shipsomnia in Asia, as it is collaborating with one of the best clubs, from Singapore/Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong to Jakarta, Bali and Shanghai.
Each club will also host two parties on Shipsomnia and they would be represented by their resident DJs, who would present their unique brand/sound and club culture, alongside global acts that would be announced at a later date.
