Just as we begin to count down the days until we return to paradise, SXM Festival recently announced the second phase to it’s 2022 line-up in the tropical island of Saint Martin. The festival will span across five days at various locations that show off the unique beauty of the island. From the festival’s main stage grounds at the majestic Happy Bay, to the plane-spotting beach club Karakter, SXM truly delivers a unique festival experience like no other.
In the Phase 2 announcement, we saw some familiar names and SXM alumni added the roster including Audiofly, Gab Rhome, Marco Carola and UnderHer alongside many others. Other notable artists added to the lineup such as Innellea, Jimi Jules, Layla Benitez, and Magdalena will be making their festival debut. The Phase 2 lineup release compliments an already stellar Phase 1 lineup that includes Âme, Blond:Ish, Danny Tenaglia, DJ Tennis, Dubfire, Gordo, Joeski, Ricardo Villalobos, Sonja Moonear, WhoMadeWho and more.
It is looking to be a triumphant return for festival that had to end its last installment a day early in March 2020 as the world prepared to grasp the devasting affects of the Covid-19 pandemic. The last and final phase to the lineup is slated to arrive next week, and we can’t wait to see how it will round out an already impeccable line up of some of the best in house and techno.
