An electronic event of this scale has yet to take place here!
The magnificent Caribbean island of Barbados is hosting a new week long music festival from the 4th of April till the 8th of April, 2018! ‘Vujaday’ is defined as “an entirely new experience” and “like nothing you have ever seen or felt before”. Leaving the first and the last day of the week long journey for travel, the festival will take place in a unique setting each of its five days.
These five events will run from Wednesday through Sunday during Vujaday with the largest event on Saturday. Tourists and locals can expect to get a much wider experience than they would get on a typical holiday. Events will take place at Farley Hill, Holetown, South Beach Zone, and the East and West coasts of the island.
The team behind Vujaday has decades of experience in the festival and event scene. Industry veterans that have been involved in the creation and operation of Toronto based events like Digital Dreams Music Festival, Electric Island, World Electronic Music Festival and All Day I Dream, along with Further Future in the USA and SXM Festival in the Caribbean will coordinate to give you the best experience on the island. The founders have also owned and operated well-renowned clubs in Toronto such as Footwork Nightclub, Coda, The Hoxton and The Velvet Underground.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring a major electronic festival to Barbados,” says Ryan Kruger, Vujaday co-founder and president of The RKET Group. “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.”
To ensure the local culture is well-represented throughout Vujaday Music Festival, the team has also brought on Norman Barrow, the managing director of A&B Music Supplies in Barbados, who has played an important role in the music, entertainment and production business in Barbados and the Caribbean for the past 40 years. They also have a unique industry partnership with creative media agency The Confluence, whose publicity and content services have driven successful campaigns around the globe.
The debut festival will also curate an incredible lineup focused on different styles of house and techno. The lineup is going to be announced soon and is expected to include internationally recognized house and techno DJs to Barbados, along with local favourites.
