Hed Kandi has been delivering flirty sounds with a sense of humour to grown-up clubbers since their first club residency in London in 2002. Word soon spread about the most lavish and opulently produced events that the UK had seen, resulting in road-blocks and huge demand for Hed Kandi parties nationwide.

Hed Kandi now defines the sound and vision of the international party scene.

Other top Hed Kandi DJs who will be announced at a later stage will be joining Cannon to Rock The Boat...
How much are tickets?
Ticket prices vary based on how many people share the cabin (cabins can accommodate between one and four people), as well as whether the cabin is an inside cabin (i.e. no window) or an outside cabin (with a window overlooking the sea) or a VIP Suite (with a private balcony). Prices are per cabin, not per person - therefore cabin prices will be the same if two or four people share the cabin (however the more people sharing the cabin, the cheaper the overall cost-per-person sharing becomes). So depending on your budget and just who you want to share this amazing experience with, you can find a ticket that suits your needs.
VIP Balcony Suite: Outside cabin with balcony includes VIP boarding. 2 berth: R3,500.00 per person per night sharing/R21,000.00 for the cabin. 3 berth: R2,333.00 per person per night sharing/R21,000.00 for the cabin.
