What press write about us

"Every year scores of destination ravers and affluent spring breakers descend upon the pristine beaches of St. Martin to take part in one of the world's most beautiful festivals. Featuring lavish villa parties, midday yacht cruises, and all-night beachside DJ sets, SXM Festival has built itself up in just a few short years as a Caribbean Ibiza."

Paper Magazine

"In the world of large-scale events, the SXM Festival has established itself as a proven thought leader in eco-consciousness, education, and awareness. The experience of founders Julian Prince and Driss Skali after the hurricane of 2017 has been widely reported, providing personal insight on their resilience and dedication. The Advance recently caught up with Julian for a more in-depth look inside the festival’s founding ethics, its commitment to both the local and global community, its unique partnerships, and the undeniable power of art and music."

The Advance

"St-Martin or St Maarten (depending which side of the island you are on) is widely known for incredible beaches, sweeping ocean views, gorgeous sunsets and some of the friendliest people around. The island is widely visited by tourists from around the world making it one of the most visited places in the Caribbean."

EDM Maniac

“As other festivals around the globe begin to tire and all become too commercial, with the Caribbean as its backdrop, SXM has the advantage”

BBC Travel

“...why not sign up for a music festival that promises not only to be a great party, but also to provide a trip of a lifetime. At that, SXM Festival is leading the charge.”

All ticket holders are welcome to arrive as early as they wish in order to check into your accommodations, familiarise themselves with the island, and spend the first days exploring. We’ added some experiences and activities to attend previously to the start of the festival.

In addition to our ticketing and accommodation options, buying a ticket now will always give you the best possible prices and the great selection of options to make your experience everything that you want it to be.

Yes, you should receive a confirmation email from SXM FESTIVAL ticketing to confirm your order after purchase. If you did not receive an email, log into your account at easol.com to verify that the correct email address is associated with your account. If you are still having issues, please reach out to info@sxmfestival.com and our support team will help you verify your purchase.

It is mandatory that you provide your barcode and piece of identification. Please make sure that your Barcode is downloaded to your phone in the event of limited cellular connectivity. The box office will accept a State issued Driver's license, a government issued Non-Driver ID Card, Military ID, or Passport. Please make sure to have one of these forms of ID with you!

Please note that access to SXM Festival events will be with your SXM wristband ONLY. You will exchange your paper ticket or have your mobile ticket scanned in exchange for your SXM Festival wristband. Admission will take place at the SXM Airport and at Happy Bay.

If you have purchased a VIP upgrade, please note that in order to receive your VIP wristband you must present both the 5 DAY GA proof of purchase and the VIP UPGRADE proof of purchase. Please ensure that the proof of purchase is in the same name.

A VISA to enter Saint Martin is not required for most countries, including Europe and North America. Please double check online regarding your country of citizenship before traveling.

After consulting several different expert-driven modelling scenarios with our internal safety team, we are optimistic and confident that SXM Festival 2022 will happen as intended. However, we understand that nobody can predict the future and provide this information to help you be sure that you will always get the value of any purchases you make with SXM Festival. 

In the event that SXM Festival 2022 is cancelled or postponed, you will have three primary options for your tickets and accommodations:

1-Your tickets and accommodation will automatically be transferred to the new festival date.

2- You can choose to move your tickets to any of the following three years: 2023, 2024, or 2025. 

3-You can resell your ticket through the official SXM Festival ticketing resale platform, that will be going live in 2022.

In accordance with our official ticketing Terms and Conditions, we are not able to offer ticket refunds for any reason. 

To build SXM into the thriving ecosystem that is laid before you when you arrive to the event, it requires the efforts of thousands of people- many of which work year round and arrive to site as far as 6 months in advance of the festival date to start build. This means that a vast majority of our expenses are incurred far before the festival takes place. If we were to offer refunds, it could easily lead to an existential challenge that our company would not be able to overcome. 

Each ticket has an individually generated barcode which we will scan in order to redeem your paper ticket or mobile barcode for your wristband. If you choose to transfer your ticket or if a ticket is being transferred to you, please have a copy of the paper ticket or mobile barcode to exchange for your entrance wristband. 

Unfortunately, ticket fraud is a common occurrence and predatory scammers are getting savvier to separate you from your hard-earned funds. The best way to ensure that your tickets are legitimate is to purchase them directly from the SXM Festival website through our ticketing partner Easol, or through our ticketing resale platform when it launches in 2021. SXM Festival does not sell tickets on any other platform and we cannot honour fraudulent tickets nor provide you with a refund in the event that you are scammed. Always use your best judgment and deal directly with SXM FESTIVAL for any of your event purchases.

Please note that ticket purchasers will not receive a pdf ticket with scannable barcode until the month of the event. If someone is trying to sell you a pdf ticket prior to then, it is fraudulent. 

The parking area will be a short walking distance from the venue and there will not be a shuttle. Please prepare for this when deciding how much stuff to bring with you to the festival.

SXM Festival is not responsible for belongings left inside your vehicle, and we highly encourage you to leave valuables at home. 

For the moment, no vaccination is required but the authorities of St-Martin might make special provisions in the meantime so please stay tuned.

What Is the Official Currency?
The French side officially uses the EURO and Dutch the Netherlands Antillean Florin. The US dollar can be spent on either sides of the island and the EURO is widely accepted on both also. Credit cards are accepted at most major outlets but it is always best to check before sitting down for dinner. The island is frequented by tourists and all merchants are well versed in calculating the exchange. All SXM Festival charging stations accept both USD and Euro currencies at the current daily exchange rate. For details on how the wristbands work please see the admission section of our FAQ.
Is Saint Martin Safe?
The car number plates say it: “The Friendly Island”. Saint Martin is a small island with a low crime rate and a friendly, happy population. There are French and Dutch police on each respective side of the island. That said, like anywhere in the world, it is wise to take sensible precautions such as: not flashing money or jewelry around, not leaving valuables in cars, not going to secluded places at night or trespassing on private property, not being rude or disrespectful to the locals. Just the regular rules you would follow on any vacation or in any big city. Be sensible and you’ll have an amazing time on this Friendly Island.
 
Are There Mosquitos?
In the dry season – when SXM Festival happens – there are fewer insects and mosquitos. We still advise attendees to use insect repellent, mosquito nets, citronella candles and long clothes at night to minimize the risk of being bitten. 
Can I Drink The Tap Water?

We recommend drinking bottled water.

What If An Artist Cancels Their Performance?

All Festival performers, including headliners, are subject to change or cancellation at any time without notice. No refunds will be issued if a festival performer is changed or canceled.

Will I Be Able To Use My Phone And Go Online?

Broadband and wifi are available in many places around the island, especially hotels and marinas. It can be a little unreliable at times but generally functional. There is cell phone coverage across most of the island and 3G but again the 3G can be patchy at times. Most north American cell phones work in Saint Martin. International dialing codes are +590 for Saint Martin and +1-721 for Sint Maarten.

What Is The Power Supply?

French side : 220V / 60Hz. European outlets

Dutch side : 110V / 60 Hz. American outlets
