Today SXM Festival, underground electronic music’s premiere destination getaway, has revealed an industry-leading assemblage of Showcase Partners for its March 13-17 return to the Caribbean island of Saint Martin/Sint Maarten. This announcement comes alongside the complete lineup for the 2019 festival and info on the diverse venues spread throughout the idyllic host island.
SXM Festival has furthered its reputation as a hub for the global electronic music community by involving some of the world’s most renowned party brands for this year’s edition. As a nod to its Burning Man influences SXM welcomes deep-playa art car impresarios Mayan Warrior, the iconic pyramid of The Kazbah, leading day party soundcamp Pink Mammoth, and Burner house haven Monkey Love. The event’s link to the European underground will be showcased by the decade long reign of Enzo Siragusa’s Fuse London, Audiofly’s Flying Circus, Amsterdam’s The Garden of Babylon and VBX, DJ W!LD’s Parisian club night Daily Cid, and roaming intergalactic party-place Drums. SXM will also host events by NYC’s Zero and Stranger Than, Chaim’s Blue Shadow, Montreal’s (( Stereo )) and more key partners.
It remains the festival’s integration with Saint Martin/Sint Maarten’s range of beautiful venues that makes it a truly inimitable electronic music experience. The SXM journey flows between secluded beach parties at the Happy Bay mainstage, into intimate soirées at jungle locales and private villas, through to late night club triumphs at Refuge and Lotus, and of course legendary sunrise celebrations beachfront at Layla’s.

The third and final phase of lineup additions include Copenhagen’s experimental dance group WhoMadeWho, New York tech-house phenom Vanjee, Baum Bogota resident Hernan Cayetano, XLR8R’s WXC (John Wander & Luke Cheadle), and many more global underground leaders. These artists join an already star-studded lineup featuring the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, John Acquaviva, Oxia, Rebolledo, Sonja Moonear, M.A.N.D.Y and Blond:ish.
The SXM Festival experience is known for its sense of immersion and adventure, guiding attendees through a journey of artistic wonder and cultural connectivity. Each venue is adorned with organic production elements that appear as though to grow from the very island environment in which the event is hosted. Following the devastation of Saint Martin/Sint Maarten by Hurricane IRMA in 2017, aesthetic curation has been reimagined to incorporate the debris created by the storm in order to minimize the importing of materials. By using recycled and reclaimed wood sourced from the area, the event continues its legacy of producing stages and art in harmony with the local habitat.
It is with a world-class musical lineup combined with the magical fusion of professional party-people from around the world that SXM Festival rises for its most anticipated edition yet.
