Beginning with Grammy Award-winning South African artist Black Coffee and Desolat label co-founder Loco Dice, as well as Puerto Rico’s own Natalia Roth, the chic sounds of Moody Jones, and Anthony Middleton of Audiofly, the Phase 2 lineup of SXM Festival welcomes a fresh group of talented performers.
Amine K, a leading figure in Moroccan electronic music, members of the Scenarios collective and label Emanuel Satie and Maga, well-known French export Oxia, as well as a variety of established and up-and-coming artists like Jean Pierre, Layla Benitez, Paolo Rocco, Ms Mada, Paso Doble, Underher, Airrica, Wahm, and others, are among the highlights of the Phase 2 lineup.
These new additions to phase two join an already stacked lineup that already includes previously announced acts like Grammy-nominated, triple-platinum production duo CamelPhat, Music On founder Marco Carola, renowned electronic music pioneer Dubfire, and the musical extravaganza of Astra Club, a b2b set from DJ Tennis and Carlita. The return of Swiss favorite Sonja Moonear after her unforgettable performance in 2022, the reinvented house superstar Gordo, the standout DJ and producer from Brazil Mochakk, and a live set from visionary melodic house and techno veteran Rodriguez Jr. are among the other highlights.
Additionally adding to the lineup’s international diversity are rising West African DJ and producer AMÉMÉ, Palestinian DJ Maher Daniel, French exports Apollonia and YokoO, DJ and producer Gene On Earth from Berlin, and Konstantin Sibold, a German producer and co-founder of the Common Sense People event series. The roster includes artists with a variety of musical tastes, including renowned selector Doc Martin, Archie Hamilton, imprint head of Moscow Records and Moss Co., Deer Jade, and psychedelic house producer Mita Gami.
The party locations are amazing, starting with the storied Happy Bay. The renowned Arc Major Stage and the immersive Ocean Stage are located at the remote private beach tucked away in the jungle, which also acts as the main evening venue. 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.
