The beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados will be hosting a new week long music festival, Vujaday April 4th-8th, 2018. Vujaday will take place in a unique location for each of its five days, leaving the first and last day of the week-long event for travel. This event will be unlike any festival you have experienced before! The festival will be fresh for both tourists and locals alike, giving those visiting the island for the first time a much wider experience than they would normally get on a typical vacation. The five events take place from Wednesday through Sunday during Vujaday, with the largest event on Saturday. Events will take place at Farley Hill, Holetown, South Beach Zone, and the East and West coasts of the island.
Beyond cultural exploration of Barbados, the inaugural event will also curate a lineup focused on different styles of house and techno, roping in internationally renowned DJs and local favorites. This will be largest electronic event to take place in Barbados, and it is surely going to be an unforgettable week!
The creative minds behind Vujaday will be bringing decades of experience in the festival and event space to Barbados. The team includes 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. In addition, the founders have also owned and operated world 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.”
Vujaday has also teamed up with the creative media agency The Confluence, whose publicity and content services have driven successful campaigns for well-known music festivals, brands, and conferences around the globe for nearly a decade. To help ensure the proper representation of the local culture throughout Vujaday Music Festival, the team has also brought on Norman Barrow, the managing director of A&B Music Supplies in Barbados. He has been an integral part of the music, entertainment, and production business in Barbados and the Caribbean for the past 40 years, and has been involved in some of the region’s most significant events.
