The 2024 FriendShip music cruise, masterminded by Destructo, was a nautical extravaganza that took over 4000 electronic music enthusiasts on a spectacular journey from Miami to Belize’s Harvest Caye. This year’s edition was a vibrant fusion of music, fun, and unforgettable moments, showcasing an array of talent that left everyone spellbound.
Among the highlights was the much-anticipated reunion of Dog Blood, the dynamic duo of Skrillex and Boys Noize. Their surprise performance on the MainStage, their first official show since 2019, was some serious icing on the cake for this event. The energy of their set was electrifying, with each track resonating with the ecstatic crowd, reminding us of the sheer joy and excitement that music can bring.
The lineup was a delightful mix of electronic music’s best. Destructo, the creative force behind FriendShip, delivered his iconic Sunrise Sermon set for the first time at the festival, offering a magical experience as the first light of day washed over the attendees. The roster also included Justin Martin, Bob Moses, Chris Lake, Chris Lorenzo, and many others, each contributing their unique sounds and creating an unforgettable musical tapestry.
The ‘Last Man Standing’ b2b2b closing set was a marathon of musical brilliance, featuring artists like Destructo, Ardalan, Desert Hearts’ Mikey Lion, J.Phlip, and more. This four-hour session was the perfect finale, highlighting the diverse styles and communal spirit that define FriendShip.

The ‘Dial-A-DJ’ hotline added a personal touch to the experience. Artists like Bob Moses, VTSS, Mersiv, and Nala delivered impromptu cabin room performances, creating intimate moments between artists and fans. This initiative not only showcased the artists’ versatility but also brought a unique level of interaction that’s hard to find at typical music festivals.
Looking forward to FriendShip 2025, the excitement is already building. Set to embark from February 21 to 26, 2025, the next edition promises another unforgettable voyage full of music, culture, and adventure. As FriendShip continues to innovate and evolve, it stands out as a shining example of what a music festival can be, inviting everyone to be part of this extraordinary journey.
