‘Deck Selecta’ DJ Competition Launches For ‘It’s The Ship’ Festival



It’s The Ship has launched a Deck Selecta DJ competition for this year’s festival edition, which takes place November 17-20, 2017.


As Asia’s largest festival at sea, It’s The Ship returns this year for another massive installment. This time, the creators are hosting a “Deck Selecta” competition, which gives three lucky winners the opportunity to perform sets aboard the highly anticipated four-day floating event in front of crowds 4,000 strong.



The competition includes travel (no global restrictions), accommodation aboard Dream Cruises’ luxury cruise liner Genting Dream as she sails between Singapore and Phuket, Thailand, and the chance to rub shoulders with a sparkling roster of A-list artists lined up to take part in one of the most unique, high-octane festival settings anywhere in the world.


The grand prize includes:
• Travel to and from Singapore (from anywhere in the world)
• Accommodation on the Genting Dream luxury cruise liner, sailing from Singapore to Phuket, Thailand and back again
• DJ set on board in front of 4,000 people


To enter, participants must upload one original track and one 45-minute mix (including 2 original tracks and an accurate set list) to either SoundCloud or Mixcloud, entitled “Deck Selecta – <ARTIST NAME>”. Then simply head over to the IT’S THE SHIP website, hit the Deck Selecta contest tab and fill in the form accordingly, HERE.


Submissions open today (July 7th) at 8pm GMT+8 and close on July 27th at 11:59pm GMT+8, with the competition open to anyone over the age of 18-years-old.


It’s The Ship also launched the Roommate Match initiative for solo travelers. This new program pairs solo travelers in an effort to reduce costs for single occupancy rates. Over the years, as the number of solo travelers increased, the need for a Roommate Match has grown. Cabins available for ‘Roommate Match’ are INSIDE CABIN (LOWER & UPPER DECK) – for more information or to apply for a pairing, send your inquiry to


This year’s lineup has yet to be announced. Past year’s of It’s The Ship have brought DJ sets from Kaskade, Knife Party, Ferry Corsten, Andrew Rayel, Autograf, Dada Life, Sander van Doorn, and many more.
