SXMusic Festival 2016 Banner

SXMusic Festival is a brand spankin’ new event slated for March 9th to the 13th of 2016 on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Martin. This five-day event sets itself apart from the rest by hosting in a dreamlike location that promises a unique experience. Jamie Jones, DJ Tennis, Lee Burridge, Adriatique, Thugfucker, Blond:ish, Francesca Lombardo and Psychemagik complete the first wave of artists that was recently announced!

The term SXMusic derives from St Martin’s three letter airport code SXM. Saint Martin is a small island where temperatures hover in the 80s all year round. A mixture of French and Dutch culture characterises this magical place. Amazing food options include Caribbean street food through to world class fine dining, and accommodations are plentiful.

At SXMusic Festival, the environment is as much of a headliner as any of the artists, so they have taken steps to minimize the carbon footprint of the festival’s sound and lighting power consumption.  Bio-diesel generators will power all outdoor events through the most energy efficient amps in the business, and LED lighting will provide subtle accents designed to augment the natural beauty of our locations.

Each day through to night, parties will take place at several selected venues on the island and DJs will be given complete musical freedom to put the state-of-the-art Void Sound Systems through their paces. The events will be carefully programmed to take into account setting, time and location, and every stage will feature special additional production. Of course, the featured events are only part of the story. Also expect a number of secret after parties back at private villas, boats and beaches to be announced later!

Festival Locations

The Forest

A secluded forest retreat with infinity pools, raised lounge huts and wooden platforms overlooking the tropical splendour. It’s a stunning paradise straight out of the pages of Conde Naste Traveler with palm trees, roaming wildlife and lush waterfalls.

The Beach

With the most spectacular sunsets and views of the ocean, The Beach is famous for it’s location at one end of the SXM runway.  Planes fly in hourly to land just feet above party goers.  Each landing is cheered in, DC10 style.

The Bay

Another stunning beach location nestled in a little cove, backed by lush green hills and cute Caribbean huts, with the tropical seas extending into the blue yonder.
