Let’s talk about music. It’s not just the wind and the waves that keep The Yacht Week moving. At the heart of The Yacht Week experience are the beats that float your boat and we’ve got them all, from disco to dancehall. Only The Yacht Week can call upon the Buzz Boat - our fully kitted-out, floating DJ booth, so even out at sea you’re ready to dance.

The Yacht Week DJs are experts at what they do. They know exactly what tune to play and when to play it to deliver that perfect soundtrack to a moment you’ll never forget. You might even get a chance to see the next superstar DJ in an intimate setting before they blow up. The Yacht Week runs an annual DJ competition to discover the freshest, most exciting new talent, who then join the fun and get a chance to show you what they can do.

The Winners

This year, our competition winners were DJ Nix and DJ Senses who will be joining The Yacht Week on weeks 32 and 32 to get the parties jumping. DJ Nix and DJ Senses impressed our judges with their ability to select just the right tunes and vibes for The Yacht Week crowds, as well as their energy, and top-class technical DJ skills. These DJs won the chance to tear up our dancefloors and could potentially become regular fixtures on The Yacht Week resident DJ lineups across the world, including gigs in Croatia, Greece, British Virgin Islands, Tahiti, Turkey, and more.

The competition even drew two hugely respected brands as prize providers, Pioneer DJ and UDG (Ultimate DJ Gear). Pioneer DJ is the world’s leading name in DJ equipment and has heavily influenced the way DJing has evolved with innovations such as the CDJ turntable and the DDJ portable DJ controller. UDG is the world’s leading creator of DJ luggage, producing a huge range of bags and products to protect precious DJ equipment, counting everyone from Carl Cox to Fatboy Slim as fans!

Other Music Collaborations

With our new DJs alongside our proven residents, The Yacht Week has been carefully redefining what a festival can be, creating bespoke travel experiences with music at their heart. We’ve collaborated with the likes of Drumcode, Hot Creations, Ultra Festival, Hideout Festival,, and Applebum, with a WAVES takeover also lined up for this summer, making DJs and music an integral part of our experience.

You can choose the soundtrack to dance your way through your Yacht Week adventure, whether it’s techno, house, tech house, EDM, disco, hip hop, reggaeton, soca, dancehall, afrobeats - you’ll find the groove you’re looking for.
