Shipsomnia – The Search For Lost Rhythms


Shipsomnia – a music & arts festival meets high seas mythical adventure – has arrived. The one-of-its-kind, experiential 5-day festival vacation will cruise to the hottest destinations in Asia. The experience features one of the world’s finest musical sommeliers on the grandiose Costa Victoria. The cruise will be propped out with a magical aquatic theme with a steampunk twist, where legends of the sea come to life.

The 5 day – 4 night cruise will set off from Singapore on January 2, 2016, to Phuket and Langkawi.

“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.” says Jay Slangen, Mad Fresh Events’ creative director and Shipsomnia’s co-founder.


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. 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. While plans are in the pipeline to expand to other regions such as Hong Kong,Shanghai, Dubai, Bali and Sydney, Singapore will always have the fresh new production and storyline every year.

Fun-seekers can expect a multi-club tour of Shipsomnia in Asia, as it is collaborating with the best clubs, from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Bali and Shanghai. Each club will also host two parties on Shipsomnia and they will be represented by their resident DJs, who will present their unique brand/sound and club culture, alongside global acts that are to be announced at a later date.
