A brand new destination festival from the mind of Kaskade could become dance music escapists' ultimate getaway.
Scheduled for December 16-18, 2022, the first-ever Sun Soaked event will go down at Cancún's all-inclusive Paradisus and Fiesta Americana Resorts, the home of sun-kissed destination festivals organized by Excision (Paradise Blue) and ILLENIUM (Ember Shores). Kaskade has joined forces with the promoters of those events, Festication, to organize Sun Soaked, the third in a series of artist-curated destination festivals.
According to the iconic Fire & Ice producer, he wants to break the mold of today's moth-eaten festival landscape.
"Sun Soaked has become a unicorn in an over saturated festival world. A perfect trinity of sun, water + sand," Kaskade said in a press release. "When we add music, everyone gets a day where they are elevated. Most people feel at least 3x better than normal (*not a scientific fact but most likely true). I’m so excited to bring Sun Soaked to such a special location in Cancún, Mexico. The chance to stretch it out and see where we can take this vibe is something that is going to be extraordinary."
