Event Details

We're back to celebrate five funkin' years of good times and soulful sounds at sea... Every year we get bigger and this one is no exception with a bigger band, a crazier theme and even more super funky DJs to rock the boat. After witnessing our wild crowd get loose for many years now, it's clear we're all a bunch of world class, dancing party animals! So this year's theme is 'FUNKY ANIMALS'...

Think animal prints, animal suits, Animal from The Muppets, Animal House and ship loads of animalistic behaviour. Whether you were born in the year of the Tiger or your spirit animal is a Unicorn, we want you to release your inner animal aboard the good ship Victoria Star for two amazing causes. As usual we've got a nice mix of funky sounds headlined by the legendary 10 piece funk juggernaut 'The Cactus Channel' who'll be doing their thang live on the top deck. Our dedication to live funky sounds continue on the lower deck with Tom Showtime jamming on sax over some sweet funk tunes...

As usual we have a killer bunch of seafaring DJs such as Chris Gill (RRR, Northside Records), Tom Showtime (Ghetto Funk), Mz. Rizk (KISS FM), DJ Ayna and The Soul City Soundsystem, all aboard to drop some dancefloor goodness. We've also enlisted some new crew members this year with DJs Lob & Obliveus teaming up as the Black Caesar DJs to get the boat rocking. This is definitely the funkiest boat on the goddamn planet. We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank you, the funky folks who have supported this event for 5 years... Let's make it 10 years. See you at sea people! All funds raised at this charity funk-tion will be donated to The Happy School and Happy Football Cambodia programs.
