The Yacht Week is a week-long festival experience at sea. You sail and live on a yacht, explore idyllic destinations, and party with people from all over the world.
Over the course of a week, you go to a bunch of themed day and evening parties, hosted at different locations throughout your chosen destination. They feature DJs from around the world, spanning a variety of music genres.
We asked DJ ADRY, who played at The Yacht Week in Croatia this summer, what it's like to DJ at a week-long floating festival.
Adry's first gig was DJing his own birthday party in Cairo, Egypt, where he grew up. The night sold out, and he hasn't stopped performing since.
As a Muslim, Adry doesn't drink. But he thinks performing sober is crucial, regardless. "As a DJ, you need to be fully focused and sharp throughout your set."
The song he gets asked to play the most is, of course, Despacito. “I always say yes, but I never play it.”
The DJs at The Yacht Week stay on a crew boat, which usually throws a few unofficial parties throughout the week.
Adry's favourite thing about The Yacht Week is that you get to meet and party with people from all over the world.
