This year will be Outlook festival’s tenth birthday, and it promises to be as wonderful as usual. The infamously wild boat party bill tends to be this coastal festival’s highlight, giving punters the chance to party to internationally renowned DJs and MCs while soaring over Adriatic waves. So ticket-holders will be thrilled to hear that this year’s stellar line-up has just been announced:

Thursday gets the revelling started with voyages hosted by Congo Natty with Lady Chann and Subdub. Friday’s afternoon maritime trip will be a bassy, D’n’B and hip-hop extravaganza, headlined by Artful Dodger, Mighty Mo, and El-B, and you can party into the sunset and beyond – night boat parties boast bills including Barely Legal, Zed Bias and DJ Spinn.

On Saturday, Noisia & Alix Perez and Deep Medi will be riding the waves, and Kurupt FM’s appearance will get everyone hyped up for the evening Hyperdub x Teklife boat, which will see Kode9, DJ Taye and Ikonika get crowds ecstatic as the sun goes down. And on Sunday, the party closes in style, with some of the biggest names at the festival taking to the sea. Dispatch Recordings, Med School, Hatcha and Friends will be leading the party – some special guests are yet to be announced, but Mad Professor and Earl Gateshead are confirmed to be setting sail on Sunday afternoon.

It's pretty much impossible not to have fun on these crazy, sun-soaked expeditions, so a ticket is totally worth the £17.50 it'll cost you. And boat space is limited, so if you don't want to miss your chance to party in the middle of the ocean then make sure to book quickly - tickets go on sale on Thursday June 2nd.
