Perks include the provision of free food and drink for the duration of the week-long festival, a personal golf buggy for navigation throughout the resort, personal chefs, and much more. Here, the best of the best in dance music come together to create an atmosphere like no other.


It truly is a party in paradise, whether you are getting your groove on by the pool, on the beach, in the midst of a boat party, or in your villa. It’s all inclusive as well, so there’s no need to worry about spending a dime once you’re there. This means access to all entrances, beach parties, boat and pool parties, bars, food, and more.


Many DJs stay for the entirety of the festival and play more than one set. The artists are as much a part of the experience as you are — they dine among you, dance with you, and enjoy the musical experience just as you do. The music unites everyone together — it is truly exceptional.


Other names revealed on the GrooveFest lineup include British drum and bass DJ Doorly, Hector Couto, Andre Hommen, the jazzy Terry Hunter, Cera Alba, Sy Sez, disco house pair Bobby & Steve, Sam Divine, and momentum-gaining house DJ Sonny Fodera.
