SXM Festival announces first acts for 2017

SXM Festival 2017

SXM Festival, a clandestine electronic music getaway, has announced the first acts for its 2017 line up.

Set amongst the iconic shores and picturesque jungles of the Caribbean island of St Martin, SXM Festival will return for its second year between the 15th – 19th March 2017, featuring a wide-reaching array of world-class talent from across the global house and techno community.

Beyond its unparalleled location, SXM Festival has earned its reputation through a firm dedication to the underground and a keen ear towards the sonic trends of tomorrow. Riding on the wake of a much talked about inaugural 2016 soirée, SXM Festival’s 2017 edition will see the event truly step onto the world’s stage with a first-rate assemblage of the best live acts and DJs, representing the leaders of the global house and techno scene.

“After our much talked about inaugural year, we are beyond excited to return to beautiful St. Martin with some of the world’s best DJs and producers. In curating this year’s line up it was our hope to offer a look into the past, present and future of our community. From legendary fixtures of the scene, to up-and-coming stars, to the avant-garde sounds of tomorrow, we have bridged all channels in choosing the soundtrack for SXM Festival 2017. It was our hope to craft a lineup that reflected the talents of both men and women from across all corners of the globe and bring them to the oasis of St. Martin for a totally unique dance music experience”

– Julian Prince, Founder of SXM Festival

Since its inception, SXM Festival has had its sights set on the crafting of an utterly unique destination experience, creating a new home for the nomadic dance music underground. For five sunrises and sunsets, attendees can find themselves barefoot at the secluded white-sand beach main stage, adrift on an iconic Caribbean boat party, at exclusive VIP villa parties, lost down a techno tailspin in a natural jungle venue, or swept up in the local cuisine and rich culture of the half Dutch, half French island paradise. Even with such rich programming, it remains the unmentioned surprises that give SXM Festival its unmatched magic, offering unique pop-ups throughout the 24-hour sonic experience – a treat for the senses and the soul from start to finish.

It is this mix of fine tuned musical curation, an astonishing natural setting, and a quality over quantity model that has come to define the SXM Festival experience. With an already budding community of dance floor devotées and the attention of the globetrotting party elite, 2017 will see the festival rise even closer to its fated ranking amongst the world’s best music events.
