March 2016 saw a lot of happy house heads in St. Martin. It was the debut of SXM Festival, and partiers wiggled their toes in the white sand while serenaded by the underground sounds of Patrick Topping, Maceo Plex, Jamie Jones, and more. Of course, it's always dope listening to great music on the beach, so SXM Fest is back with aspirations to go bigger and better March 15 through 17, 2017.
"After our much talked about inaugural year, we are beyond excited to return to beautiful St. Martin with some of the world's best DJs and producers," SXM Founder Julian Prince says. "In curating this year's lineup it was our hope to offer a look into the past, present and future of our community. From legendary fixtures of the scene, to up-and-coming stars, to the avant-garde sounds of tomorrow we have delved deep in choosing the soundtrack for SXM Festival 2017. It was our hope to craft a lineup that reflected the talents of both men and women from across all corners of the globe and bring them to the oasis of St. Martin for a totally unique dance music experience like none other."
For five days and nights, fans will dance in the jungle and wade in the warm tropical waters while taking in a rare live set from Âme, as well as performances from Nina Kraviz, Lee Burridge, Black Coffee, Bob Moses, Thugfucker, Andhim, and more. Tickets are available online. Check the full lineup below.
