In April 2018, Barbados will host it’s first electronic music festival. Running from the 4th until the 8th, the festival will be held in five different locations on each day; Farley Hill, Holetown, South Beach Zone, and the East and West coasts. The largest event will take place on the Saturday.
In a press release from The Confluence, the creative media agency which has partnered with the festival, Vujaday is described as “an entirely new experience” and “like nothing you have ever seen or felt before.” The press release also quoted festival co-founder Ryan Kruger as saying:
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring a major electronic festival to Barbados. The island is brimming with a vivid culture and amazing sights to take in, and we wanted to make sure that the festival format allowed for guests to experience more than just a single location while enjoying music from around the world.”
Kruger said in an interview with Caribbean Life that the popularity of electronic music has been growing on the island. Adding that “there has been a general shift towards destination style electronic music events like ours driven by a maturing fanbase…We are now eagerly anticipating launching sales as soon as mid August.”
Managing director of A&B Music Supplies, Norman Barrow, has been added to the Vujaday team to “ensure the local culture is well-represented.”
The line up will be announced at a later date, but will be “focused on different styles of house and techno, roping in internationally renowned DJs and local favourites”.
