The magical house and techno festival SXM returns for their third year on the Caribbean island of St. Martin. Since the destruction from the series of hurricanes in 2017, the festival organizers postponed the event, and created the Two Palms Bunch Foundation to raise funds to aid those affected by Hurricane Irma. With the foundations help, St. Martin has been able to restore their island and spirits while maintaining their rich culture. The island is more ready than ever to welcome back SXM Festival.
This five day event is scheduled for March 13-17, 2019, and takes place in the midst of the island’s beaches, villas, and nightlife. SXM has released 200 Aficionado Passes for their loyal attendees at a discounted price that will also allow first pick at tickets to the festival’s Jungle Party and Boat Party. Aficionado Passholders will receive pre-release information on lineups as well.
Artists like Lee Burridge, The Martinez Brothers, and Black Coffee, among many, have made their way to St. Martin, and this year is promised the be even stronger than the rest. SXM Festival Founder, Julian Prince explains, “It is very hard to put in words how excited we are to be back to work on producing SXM Festival 2019. This has been an incredibly emotional time for the local community and the partners that make this even happen. But through these adversities I believe the island and our team have emerged stronger than ever with an impenetrable bond that is destined to produce something incredibly special. We have the intention and ability to design the ultimate event, SXM style. Saint Martiners are ecstatic to host everyone and in 2019 the energy on the island will be as magnetic as it has ever been! It is with such local spirit and the support of our amazing global community that we return with more momentum and vigor than ever before. Ironically, we always say that we couldn’t imagine what would come out if we had an extra 4 months to organize the festival. Like every precious moment in life, SXM Festival is not to be taken for granted as it was almost taken away from us right before our eyes. It is with this that we have taken more steps to ensure that our event is giving direct aid and support to the people of St Martin without whom the event would not be possible.”
