Electric Festival

Aruba will host the first electronic music conference and events platform in the Latin American and Caribbean region: The Electric Festival. EF will launch during a three day event in September 2013. The first edition of Electric Festival will be held in the summer of 2014.

What is Electric Festival?

EF is to become a global and annual music, arts and lifestyle playground welcoming all electronic music lovers and artists to the beautiful island and beaches of Aruba. Electric Festival will showcase exhibitions, events, workshops, conferences and parties.

Being a Dutch island, Aruba benefits strongly from the synergies and ties with the EDM industry in the Netherlands. Aruba is a contender to become one of the leading EDM destinations in the Latin American and Caribbean region. In June 2012, Aruba resident and Forbes World’s Greatest DJs listed DJ and music producer Chuckie celebrated his birthday in Aruba in what became an event with thousands of guests, drawing a varied array of international stars including the likes of Akon, Jasmine Villegas, Robin van Persie and Dirk Kuyt. This event confirmed that Aruba is well on the way to becoming a prominent EDM destination in the region.

The First edition of Electric Festival will be organized on 6-7-8 September 2013.
