Love Festival Aruba 2016

Welcome to Love Festival Aruba 2016!

What does Happiness plus Love equal? They are two halves of a heart, the heart that is the core of Aruba, the happiest island in the Dutch Caribbean.

Love is in the air more than ever this weekend on One Happy Island when the electric Love Festival sensation returns to Aruba for the third year running. And this year it’s bigger and better than ever attracting EDM lovers and top DJ talents from all over the world. And all the action is outdoors on Aruba’s beautiful beaches! Look for pop-up clubs and surprise events too; you never know where you’ll find EDM love (and maybe true love) during this festival!

 

Join the Tribe!

Love Festival organizers say, “The word says it all; it’s a festival where it’s all about love. Love for each other, love for the universe and especially love for dance music.”

So grab your sense of adventure and be there at these exhilarating events, your tribe is waiting!



Dance Party on the White Sands of Eagle Beach

For the third year in a row, Love Festival returns to the island from July 29th through July 31st–three glorious days of sun-drenched celebration on the white sands of Eagle Beach. Over 50 international and local DJs will perform on three stages, spinning House, Techno and EDM music along with the excitement of “pop-up parties” and special events like “Join The Tribe” appearing throughout the weekend.  With an all-white (with a hint of pink) dress code and expected attendees of up to 3,500, the view across this sea of white will be a midsummer night’s dream.

 

join-the-tribe“Join The Tribe” In 2016

Produced by the LeJuez Brothers, creators of the “I Love Aruba” brand, this third annual festival promises to be the biggest and most exciting yet. The festival originated in 2014 at Fisherman’s Huts near the Ritz-Carlton Resort in Palm Beach, Aruba. Each year the event has grown larger and to accommodate more music lovers this year, it has moved to Eagle Beach. One of new surprises that you’ll find at Love Festival are “Pop-Up Clubs” – mini-parties within the venue.

On Saturday, look for the “Join The Tribe” event with Sayeed Younan, Patrick M and Donnie Lowe.
These amazing DJs will be spinning beats while activities such as tribal face painting, t-shirts and music giveaways will be raising the happiness quotient at Eagle Beach. Join the Tribal dancers as everyone dances to the same drum,  moving as one to the global beat of LOVE!

Also, Love Festival Aruba 2016 is very proud to mention that it has “gone green”. The festival is using all biodegradable products, and has made it their mission to leave the beach untouched and pristine as they found it.


Party People in the House, Yo!

So who is attending the Love Festival?

Aruba lies a mere 30 miles from South America. So you can be sure that many EDM lovers people from Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Brazil and more Latin American nations will be making a beeline to this event.  And Aruba being of Dutch heritage and The Netherlands, being the birthplace of electronic dance music, you know the world’s best DJs and their fans will be there, too. The Love Festival has no borders, everyone is welcome to flock to One Happy Island for an unforgettable beach party weekend!


It’s All About House Music!

Headlining the event is world-renowned electro house DJ and producer, Chris Lake. Chris hails from England and has been “living the dream” by traveling the world, spinning his chart-topping sounds at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, in New York, and in many major events on the EDM circuit. His 2016 collaborations include the likes of Missy Elliot and Pharrell Willams hit songs like “WTF”, “Nothing Like This” and “Stranger” will definitely drive the crowds wild.

Here’s a sampling of some of the other talented DJs appearing at Love Festival Aruba 2016:

International DJ Talent


Franky Rizardo is a DJ and producer from Arnhem, Netherlands. An up and coming young artist on the international dance scene, Franky has a residency in Ibiza and his sounds have already been used in a Samsung commercial. His new track for 2016 “Keep My Cool” is heating up dance floors worldwide.

Our heart goes pitter-patter for Kata G! A native of Manizales, Colombia, the highly talented Katalina Grisales returns to join the team of DJs on the beach this weekend bringing love and happiness to all with her unique beats. Her talent and beauty are undeniable, but the dedication to her craft is what shines through brightest. She cites the illustrious DJ Sasha as one of her inspirations.

Other global DJs appearing this weekend include Gioli, David Tort, Adrian Hour and many more.


Local Djs We Know and Love

local-djs
NutzBeatz is a world renowned DJ and also a home-grown talent from the island of Aruba. We had the pleasure of catching his performance at Electric Festival in 2015 and have always been impressed by his progressive and electro house mixes. The crowd goes especially wild when one of their fellow Arubans takes the stage.

Le Bonx joins the line-up fresh off of Flip Flop Festival and other recent shows. This well known Aruban talent will get the crowd stoked and the energy levels through the roof!
