SXMusic Festival Launches In The Caribbean, First Acts Announced
>SXMusic is a brand new, boutique electronic music festival set to unfold in March 2016 on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Martin.
In a crowded global festival market, this carefully conceived, five-day event in a dreamlike location promises a unique, unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to enjoy it. Jamie Jones, Dubfire, DJ Tennis, Lee Burridge, Adriatique, Thugfucker, Blond:ish, Francesca Lombardo and Psychemagik complete the first wave of artists.
Saint Martin is a small island where temperatures hover in the 80s all year round. This dual territory paradise features rolling green hills, endless white sandy beaches, clear blue skies and crisp tropical seas. A mixture of French and Dutch culture characterises this magical place, giving it a bohemian, European vibe that echoes the White Isle. Amazing food options include Caribbean street food through to world class fine dining. Accommodation is wide-ranging and plentiful – from small hotels to grand villas with swimming pools, palm trees, tennis courts and private beaches. The stuff of dreams indeed.
The term SXMusic derives from St Martin’s three letter airport code SXM. A destination for aviation aficionados, the airport is renowned for insane landings and take-offs – and during the festival, planes will thunder towards touch-down just meters above revellers’ heads.
The talent is encouraged to stay for the whole week, creating a friendly, community vibe where DJs mix with fans in a holiday atmosphere. And as we are spending a week in paradise, who better to lead this roster than Hot Creations and Paradise main man, Jamie Jones. He will be joined by SCI+TEC boss Dubire and Life And Death chief DJ Tennis and one of the key label acts, Thugfucker, will bring a noir edge to proceedings, while acclaimed selector and producer Lee Burridge will provide some ethereal All Day I Dream magic with one of his infamous extended sets.
