CARIBBEAN: The debut edition of SXMusic, set to take place on the Caribbean island of St. Martin from March 9 – 13, has announced its third wave of acts and brand partners. The festival prides itself on its carefully curated line-up – featuring the world’s best DJs – playing extended sets in special locations.
Rebolledo, DJ W!ld, The Mekanism, Gab Rhome, Gardens Of God, Oceanvs, Orientalis, Mia Lucci, Chaim, Demi, Greg Piddock, Jade, Vanjee, Sleepy & Boo are now set to join the inaugural event, joining artists from key labels and collectives like Diynamic, Life And Death and Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream.
These new arrivals will join existing SXMusic talent including Visionquest stars Shaun Reeves and Ryan Crosson, Canadian synth specialists My Favourite Robot, Dynamic’s main man H.O.S.H., Behrouz, Brooklyn based duo Bedouin, Ibiza favourites AudioFly, tech house giants M.A.N.D.Y. and No.19 artists Maher Daniel and Nitin. Kenny Glasgow, Odd Parents, Shall Ochin and Lauren Lane also play with the initial headliners including Jamie Jones, Dubfire, DJ Tennis, Lee Burridge, Adriatique, Thugfucker, Blond:ish, Francesca Lombardo and Psychemagik.
Jamie Jones, the king of modern house music, will also be in session with his famous Paradise brand—and all the associated DJs and producers – best known for throwing mega parties at DC-10 in Ibiza. While leading labels like Get Physical will host special showcases with their key artists on the Wednesday, as will Maceo Plex’s Ellum Audio label, which will put on a unique 17 hour showcase on the Friday. Then there is a special treat on Techno Sunday with the one and only Dubfire and guests. French trio Apollonia will also host a special party with an extended set.
Many artists will be staying on Saint Martin for a few extra days before they head off to the WMC, meaning that there will be plenty of scope for special unannounced sets, secret parties and more besides.
On top of the musical highlights, attendees can expect secret retreats, infinity pools, VOID Acoustic sound, fine local cuisine, afterparties on the beach and pool parties surrounded by local wild life, palm trees and the clear blue sea.
