SXMusic Festival 2017

Wednesday 15th to Sunday 19th March 2017
Simpson Bay, Netherlands Antilles, Sint Maarten

The first acts have been announced for next year's SXMusic Festival. Returning for a second year this small electronic music festival is held from Wednesday 15th to Sunday 19th March 2017 on the Caribbean dual territory island of Sint Maartin.

The term SXMusic derives from St Martin’s three letter airport code SXM, and during the festival, planes will thunder towards touch-down just meters above revellers’ heads.

The first acts announced are Nina Kraviz, Ricardo Villalobos, Ame live, RPR Soundsystem (Rhadoo, Petre Inspirescu, Raresh), Lee Burridge, Soul Clap, Honey Dijon, Black Coffee, Amir Javasoul, Andhim, Bedouin, Behrouz, Bob Moses, Chaim, Fur Coat, John Acquaviva, Maher Daniel, Nu, Sebastian Mullaert , Thugfucker, and YokoO. Plus more to be announced.

Early bird 5 day tickets are priced from 225 euros.

SXM Festival is an 18+ event only. Please bring ID when exchanging your confirmation for your wristband.

The environment is as much of a headliner as any of the international artists, so the team has taken several 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 be designed to augment the natural beauty of the locations.

Each day through to night, parties will take place at several carefully 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 (VOID Acoustics will provide the rigs at all locations at SXMusic) including a main stage on a white sandy beach, a secret jungle retreat with beach huts and infinity pools, and a cocktail stocked beach bar. The events will be carefully programmed to take into account setting, time and location, and every stage will feature special additional production.

Also expect a number of secret after parties back at private villas, boats and beaches.
