Search Underway As Woman Goes Overboard At Mad Decent Boat Party

Written by Michael Carr on November 13, 2015

Festivities have been temporarily shut down on the Mad Decent Boat Party after a female attendee has reportedly gone overboard.

A source quoted by Complex has confirmed that an attendee went overboard, with all stages closed and attendees asked to return to their rooms as the search is conducted in the dark and the festival’s cruise ship venue The Norwegian Pearl has come to a halt.

Details remain unclear, however party-goers have posted images of lifeboats searching in the dark. While there has been no word from organisers or rescuers, the prevailing posts on social media indicate that the woman has not been found. It is believed the ship is roughly 35kms off the coast of Cuba.

In its second year this year, the Mad Decent Boat Party boasted the likes of Sydney’s Alison Wonderland, trap stars Flosstradamus and high lord of EDM Skrillex alongside Mad Decent head honcho Diplo. Setting sail from Miami on November 11 and set to dock on Novemeber 15 in Cozumel, there is no word yet on the rescue or on whether the festival will continue.
