Along with French-style champagne sipping afternoons by the pool, excellent food, boat activities, and culturally diverse adventures, beach, villa, and boat parties, hilltop sunrise sessions, and peak-time boho parties are all covered. Define your own special adventure, and you can be sure that each day will be unique and unforgettable.
Many of the most renowned figures in the global dance and techno industry are on the 2023 SXM Festival schedule. The Grammy-nominated, triple-platinum duo CamelPhat, Music On’s Marco Carola, a pioneer of electronic music Dubfire, and the musical experience of Astra Club, featuring a b2b set from DJ Tennis and Carlita, are the headliners of the bill. As for other attractions, they include the return of Swiss favorite Sonja Moonear after her remarkable performance in 2022, Gordo, the standout DJ and producer Mochakk from Brazil, and the imaginative melodic house and techno veteran Rodriguez Jr.

The party locations are amazing, starting with the storied Happy Bay.

Other attractions include the notorious Villa Party, which requires a VIP ticket, and the Boho Beach Club, the ideal spot to unwind and retreat throughout the day. Experience a resurgence of the luxury that was once reserved for 1960s jet-set movie idols, coupled with contemporary luxury and design. Definitely one of the festival’s high points is this party. Sandyline, an upscale estate, is a daytime rendezvous for your inner rock star and a showcase for the stylish.
