This music festival will take place in a different stunning location in Barbados each day

If the idea of combining music with travelling appeals to you, you might like the sound of a major electronic festival that will be hosted in Barbados in April 2018. The unique aspect is that it will take place in a different location throughout the stunning eastern Caribbean island on each of its five days.

Going by the name Vujaday, the inaugural music festival will take place at Farley Hill, Holetown, South Beach Zone, and the east and west coasts of the island. An electronic event of this scale has yet to take place in Barbados, but the team behind Vujaday will be bringing decades of experience to the festival.

These five events will run from Wednesday through Sunday during the festival, with the largest event taking place on the Saturday. Organisers say that this will allow visitors a day on either end for travelling, and moving locations will keep the festival fresh for both visitors and locals alike.

“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.”

Beyond a cultural exploration that will allow guests to visit key regions of Barbados throughout their journey, the debut festival will also curate a lineup focused on different styles of house and techno. It will feature internationally-renowned DJs and local favourites.
