SXM Festival is back with a bang as they’ve announced their 2019 return to their Caribbean home at St. Martin on March 13-17, 2019. The event is historically known for its impressive gathering of musical talent from the worlds of house and techno and obviously stunning views – and we have no doubt this year’s lineup will be just as fantastic.
The festival’s last edition took place in 2017, with an insane lineup that featured the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Black Coffee, Ame, Jamie Jones, Francesca Lombardo, Audiofly, Martin Buttrich, The Martinez Brothers, and many more. It takes places across various venues across the island, from boats and villas to jungle parties, clubs and creative spots you won’t want to miss.
This return in 2019 is a huge step for SXM and the local tourism sector of St. Martin after facing significant damage after numerous 2017 hurricanes. When discussing the comeback, SXM’s founder Julian Prince said:
‘It is very hard to put in words how excited we are to be back to work on producing SXM Festival 2019. This has been an incredibly emotional time for the local community and the partners that make this event happen. But through these adversities I believe the island and our team have emerged stronger than ever with an unbreakable bond that is destined to produce something incredibly special. We have the intention and ability to design the ultimate party – SXM style….
Like every precious moment in life, SXM Festival is not to be taken for granted as it was almost taken away from us right before our eyes. It is with this thought that we have taken more steps to ensure that our event is giving direct aid and support to the people of St Martin without whom the event would not be possible.’
SXM has also released a limited amount of SXM Aficionado passes for dedicated music lovers that will provide first access to various parties on the island as well as pre-release lineup details and more.
