Skrillex and Knife Party will headline the Holy Ship! festival, which voyages around Florida and the Bahamas in January and February in 2015.

The first journey, between Miami and Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas on January 3-6, features Knife Party, Armand Van Helden, A-Trak, Boys Noize, Pretty Lights and Flume. The second, which goes from Miami to Nassau and onto Coco Cay in the Bahamas on February 18-21, stars Skrillex, Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, Baauer and Araabmuzik.

Skrillex and Fatboy Slim also played the first Holy Ship! in 2012, while this year's event starred Pharrell Williams, Disclosure and Tiesto.

Holy Ship! is part of a growing trend of live events on the open seas. Weezer began their own cruise ship festival in 2012, which in 2014 also featured Cat Power, The Cribs and Palma Violets.
