MDRNTY announces first 100% underground electronic music cruise

MDRNTY Cruise is the first of its kind to be devoted to underground electronic music. It takes place on board the MSC Magnifica and sails from 16th-20th September 2017.

Setting off from Genoa, this wild four night Mediterranean voyage makes stopovers at Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza and Barcelona, and is a truly exclusive setting for an unforgettable party experience.

Since its creation in 2008, MDRNTY has constantly looked for exclusive and unusual venues to stage the cream of electronic music. Having already installed a dance floor in the middle of a forest of fir trees, in a mountainside hotel, on a terrace located at an altitude of 2,200m, in a big air balloon and in a cable car above a sea of ice, the MDRNTY team knows what it takes to make a one of a kind rave. As such they now put all their know how into transforming an MSC cruise liner into a giant club.

“Our goal has always been to present electronic music in an exclusive setting, where nobody would expect to hear the avant-garde of electronic music”, explains Maxime Léonard, Director of MDRNTY. “We want to share a musical, sensory experience with a wider audience made up of groove aficionados who follow the DJs from stage to stage, or of enlightened enthusiasts, who are sure to discover new sounds thanks to MDRNTY. We want to push open the club doors, to increase the outreach of electronic music, and bring it to a broader public. This is our vision at MDRNTY. And for the 2017 version, this will take the form of MDRNTY Cruise.”

MDRNTY Cruise, setting off and arriving in Genoa (Italy), is an exclusive four-night music experience for 3,200 people on the Mediterranean Sea. The stopovers include some of the major homes of electronic music: Ibiza and Barcelona, not forgetting Palma de Mallorca, so this will be a cruise with a great programme featuring big names in the scene, regulars at MDRNTY events and at Caprices Festival.

In terms of accommodation, catering and leisure, the MSC Magnifica, a 294m-long cruise liner with a 1000-man crew, offers sumptuous facilities and amenities. The MSC Magnifica is not only equipped with three swimming pools, 11 bars and five restaurants, but also boasts a spa centre and numerous leisure opportunities: tennis, bowling, sports club and 4D cinema, ideal for a relaxing break, or enjoying the cruise, that is, when you are not on one of the five dance floors—including the main one which is located above deck, next to the pool.

Each club organised by the MDRNTY teams will have its own unique atmosphere and a lineups and the DJs—spread across the five floors—will be behind their turntables 24hrs a day to bring clubbers an unbroken musical offering designed to let them enjoy their favourite sound at any hour of the day or night.

MDRNTY Cruise, a unique concept for this musical genre—usually only found in city clubs—is the result of several years of intensive work for MDRNTY but it will all pay off once the ship finally sets sail.
