One of the most recent addition to the global calendar is SXM Festival, offering a few days of magnificence in the idyllic Caribbean island of Saint Martin. Having quickly established itself as one f the go-to festivals for electronic nomads, and having previously captured the attention with its initial 2019 announcement, for the festival taking place March 13–17, it has just revealed phase two of the forthcoming gathering.

After a hurricane decimated the region in 2017, SXM returned in 2018, to underline the sense of optimism surrounding the island after the rebuild and to cement its determination to see the destination amongst the very best in the electronic festival world. Using much of the debris from the hurricane, cutting down on the need to import, recycling to create production and installations in harmony with the surroundings, SXM Festival in 2018 was a celebration of life and a rebirth for the island. With the recent announcement of the talent dropping in on Saint Martin between March 13 and 17, it is clearly on the radar of the global top table.

Add these to a list that already included Marco Carola, Apollonia, Guy Gerber, Dubfire, Axel Boman, Enzo Siragusa, Archie Hamilton, Chaim, Audiofly, and Francesca Lombardo and you get an indication of the magnitude of this event. Known for its sense of immersion, adventure and cultural connectivity, SXM Festival offers attendees an adventure they will never forget. With a selection of events across several jaw-dropping locations taking you from day into night, and a large collection of the world’s most innovative artists, it’s hardly surprising that expectation levels for the forthcoming event are soaring.
