Sonja Moonear, Jamie Jones and Roy Davis Jr. are also heading to the island party in March.

Techno figurehead Richie Hawtin leads the second wave of DJs for next year’s SXM Festival on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin. Taking place on March 15-19, the 2017 edition will also see sets from deep house duo and former FACT mixers Frank & Tony, UK dubstep and techno geezer Skream, globe-trotting house DJ Jamie Jones and NYC’s Martinez Brothers.

Martin Buttrich, Matthias Meyer, Francesca Lombardo, Kate Simko, Sonja Moonear and Roy Davis Jr. are also in the second wave of names for the festival, which takes place on the main beach stage as well as at boat parties, villa parties and a “natural jungle venue”.

They join previously announced DJs including Ricardo Villalobos, Black Coffee, Âme, Bob Moses and Nina Kraviz. SXM Festival founder Julian Prince says of the line-up: “In year two we have redoubled our efforts to bring the very best talent in underground electronic music to SXM, with every carefully curated artist having their own sonic identity.”

More artists are set to be announced in the coming weeks. For tickets and more information, visit SXM Festival and check out the complete line-up so far in the flyer below.
