Electro music will be echoing across the most beautiful landscapes of the island, and fans of the underground music scene will enjoy this unique musical event, with one-of-a-kind set design. Over five days, the SXM Festival will welcome over a hundred international artists. They will take it in turns on the decks, producing a show-stopping musical marathon. This festival only began in 2016, but it has already made a name for itself and is one of the must-see festivals of the calendar.
A unique atmosphere at this St. Martin Festival
A one-of-a-kind and varied lineup with some great surprises in the cards, so that festival-goers from all over the world can come and discover this world of freedom and togetherness.
The craziest of parties will be held across several venues, on beaches, in nightclubs. All the most incredible places on the island of St. Martin will open up like treasure chests to show you the very best they have to offer. The countless venues include beaches, lagoons, boats, nightclubs, Happy Bay, Terres Basses, Loterie Farm, Roxxy Beach, Le Lotus, and even luxury villas.
Sound progression is the main theme behind this international musical event. From sunrise to sunset, eighty DJs will be taking turns on the decks, their sounds echoing across the island for this immersive experience.
The carefully thought-out and eco-friendly set design is an invitation to respect the environment. The jaw-dropping sets are made using natural materials found on the island. This contributes to the identity of the event and creates a recognizable brand, thanks to the previous editions of St. Martin/St. Maarten Festivals.
The decoration creates a unique atmosphere that blends the music and the magic of the venues to move bodies and hearts in unison. The coherence of the venues, the atmospheres and musical styles is what SXM Festival is all about. Fans of house or techno will experience all the rhythms and passions of their favorite musical styles.
Atypical and bewitching
The organizers invite dynamic, multicultural artists from around the world. Every year, between 5,000 and 6,000 people from 60 different countries come to the island to dance and party. Since the very beginning, some great international artists have performed here on the decks, including Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Guy Gerber, Adriatique, Apollonia, DJ Tennis, Audiofly, Lee Burridge, Dubfire, Marco Carola, Ricardo Villalobos, Blond:ish, Jennifer Cardini and many more prestigious names.
With its high-quality musical line-up, the SXM Festival is an extraordinary event that has become a tourist attraction and contributes to the island’s growth. This event is made even more special thanks to the superb natural setting, with white sand, turquoise-blue sea and incredible sunsets.
