Some of the biggest names in hip hop -- Post Malone, City Girls, Da Baby, Little Nas X, Waka Flocka and the incomparable Cardi B -- show up at DJ Khaled's Days of Summer Cruise Fest. The iconic producer and multi-hyphenate personality hosted his first sailing in 2017.

General Info

The three-night full-charter 2020 cruise was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 four-day Days of Summer Hip-Hop Cruise and Music Festival has been scheduled for July 1, 2021. The itinerary and ship have not yet been announced.

Lineup and Highlights

On his cruises, DJ Khaled does his best to draw both well-known rappers and hip hop artists -- Cardi B. has a Grammy, after all, and Post Malone has 17 nominations for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards -- as well as up-and-comers. Past artists have included Pardison Fontaine, Tay Money, DEJ Loaf, Murda Beatz, Tyla Yaweh and Kent Jones.

Most of the artists will play at least one set onboard, and there could be a beach concert.

In addition to the concerts, DJ Khaled promises meet and greets with the artists, fashion pop-ups, panels, presentations and more.

Party! The Days of Summer Cruise Fest has a lot of high-octane acts, packed into a very short time period. Expect a diverse group of millennials and gen Zers to make the most of their cruise with equally energetic partying. Note: Passengers have to be 18 to sail and 21 to have a room on their own. Anyone younger than 21 must travel with someone 25 or older.
