Quotes

"Since starting Parties4Peace in 2002, we have worked with hundreds of artists and promoters towards creating a culture of peace and sustainability through music and art. The SXM Festival has been a true inspiration to our community as they work to support the local community in Saint Martin, educate youth through our programs with Peace Boat US, reforest the land affected by natural disasters and use reclaimed wood and recycled materials in their build-up of the festival. If we can all come together as one music community, we are sure to make a positive difference in the world through our work. This year as we embark on a new journey to help festival-goers carbon offset their travel with our partners at Climate Futures, we can help shape the landscape for the next generation to not only aspire to be carbon neutral, but also be proactive in their efforts to create a more sustainable future. Every little bit can help make a difference for our planet."
Emilie McGlone, Director of Peace Boat US |  Founder of Parties4Peace
"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
“It’s been our intention to give back from the start because it is in our DNA to do so. Never underestimate the power of the community. It’s never just a festival in our opinion, and ironically the most interesting thing about a festival is what gravitates around it. Our organization Two Bunch Palms was founded after year one, not after Irma like everyone thinks. We will always use the foundation as a non-profit that mediates between the community and the attendees. We will keep on using the foundation to finance actions that translate our intention to give back.”
Julian Prince l SXM Festival Founder
