The world’s 2nd largest EDM cruise festival, and Asia’s largest, IT’S THE SHIP (ITS 2016), will be making a return for its third installment this year. The four-day and three-night floating vacation cum music festival is set to depart from the Marina Bay Cruise Centre in Singapore on November 4, crossing international waters on the straits of Malacca to the Pearl of the Orient, Penang, before returning to Singapore shores on Nov 7.
As a UNESCO world cultural heritage site, the island is located on the west coast of Malaysia and is much regarded to be the food paradise of Malaysia and well known for its vibrant arts scene and heritage sites. The organisers are also working to engage with the state’s tourism department to provide guests of ITS 2016 with some exciting surprises to take place in Penang. It is the first time that the festival will set sail for Penang.
