SXMusic is a brand new, boutique electronic music festival set to unfold in March 2016 on the Caribbean island of St. Martin. In a crowded global festival market, this carefully conceived, five-day event in a dreamlike location is promising a unique, unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to enjoy it. Jamie Jones, DJ Tennis, Lee Burridge, Adriatique, Thugfucker, Blond:ish, Francesca Lombardo and Psychemagik complete the first wave of artists.
Saint Martin is a small island where temperatures hover in the 80s all year round. This dual territory island rolling green hills, endless white sandy beaches, clear blue skies and crisp tropical seas. A mixture of French and Dutch culture characterises the place, giving it a bohemian, European vibe that possibly echoes the White Isle. Food options include Caribbean street food through to fine dining. Accommodation is wide-ranging and plentiful – from small hotels to grand villas with swimming pools, palm trees, tennis courts and private beaches.
The term SXMusic derives from St Martin’s three letter airport code SXM. A destination for aviation aficionados, the airport is renowned for insane landings and take-offs – and during the festival, planes will thunder towards touch-down just meters above revellers’ heads.
The talent is encouraged to stay for the whole week, creating a friendly, community vibe where DJs mix with fans in a holiday atmosphere. If you’re spending a week in paradise, who better to lead this roster than Hot Creations and Paradise main man, Jamie Jones. He will be joined by SCI+TEC boss Dubire and Life And Death chief DJ Tennis and one of the key label acts, Thugfucker, will bring a noir edge to proceedings, while DJ/producer Lee Burridge will provide some ethereal All Day I Dream magic with one of his extended sets.

Adriatique and live duo Blond:ish will deliver their sounds and techno producer, performer and DJ Francesca Lombardo also joins the fun. The phase one line-up is completed by London / LA based duo Psychemagik and their deep disco, crate-digging vibes. Longer form sets are encouraged, allowing the artists to really explore the outer edges of their collections.
Several steps have been taken to minimise the carbon footprint of the festival's sound and lighting power consumption. Bio-diesel generators will power all outdoor events through ‘the most energy efficient amps in the business’, and LED lighting will provide subtle accents designed to augment the natural beauty of the locations.
Each day through to night, parties will take place at several carefully selected venues on the island and DJs will be given complete musical freedom to put the state-of-the-art Void Sound Systems through their paces (VOID Acoustics will provide the rigs at all locations at SXMusic). The events will be carefully programmed to take into account setting, time and location, and every stage will feature special additional production.
Also expect a number of secret after parties back at private villas, boats and beaches.
