SXM Festival Announces Phase One Lineup for its 2022 Iteration
Destination event SXM Festival returns to the Caribbean paradise of Saint Martin this March with a formidable lineup of global stars from the electronic dance scene including European standouts Ricardo Villalobos, Âme, Jan and Blomqvist. Scheduled for March 9-13, the festival will also feature performances by DJ Tennis, Steve Bug, Chloé Caillet, WhoMadeWho, and Dubfire among many more.
Phase one will also showcase performances by Canadian favorite Blond:ish, Israeli star Chaim, Grammy-nominated producer Danny Tenaglia, and diverse mix of veteran and rising names like Carlita, Behrouz, Sonja Moonear, Hoj, YokoO, Amine K, Raresh, Emanuel Satie, and more. Expect more acts to be announced in the near future.
Guests can experience their favorite house and techno artists at a variety of unique venues including Happy Bay, a secluded private beach nestled in the jungle that serves as the main evening venue for SXM Festival. It’s also home to the iconic Arc Main stage and the immersive Ocean stage. Other highlights include Boho Beach Club along with Karakter, which overlooks the Caribbean sea.
Since its debut in 2016, SXM Festival has hosted clubland’s innovators and throngs of electronic music devotees to a unique party set against the exquisite natural environs of Saint Martin and its rich cultural heritage. For the 2022 edition, the event will continue to build upon its deep connection with the cultural and ecological fabric of its beautiful host locale by partnering with SXM Doet, the largest volunteer initiative in Saint Martin and the Dutch Kingdom. SXM Festival established the partnership in 2019 to help encourage the prosperity and health of the island following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma.
Attendees are also encouraged to take a break from the party and meet the locals and other travelers while offering their service to the island at sponsored service projects. Past projects have included beach cleanups, playground builds, and basketball court maintenance, with this year’s charitable action initiatives to be announced in the months to come.
Passes are on sale now, including upgrades and VIP packages, can be purchased on the festival’s official website. For more information, click on the links below.
