Who needs a vacation? I’m imagining endless clear blue seas, gently swaying palm trees, secluded cenotes, and a lush green jungle. Doesn’t this sound like paradise? Add to that the miles of soft sand beaches, a rich melting pot of Caribbean cultures, mouthwatering gastronomy, and high spec production with a world-class soundtrack and we’ve got a match made in heaven. These are just a few of the reasons you need to pack your bags and meet up at Meet! Festival. This game-changing underground festival is bringing the heat to the Dominican Republic. The event has been around since 2019 and was the largest event of its kind and they show no signs of stopping. Hits like Funk E, Magda, Sante, Steve Bug, Themba, Blu.A, Laura Pilarte, Lucien Le Grub, Oscar Mula will join previously announced likes of Camea, Franky Rizardo, Mihai Popoviciu, Danny Serrano, and more from April 14 – 17 2022. And it all kicks off with a special opening party at the super cool Clover Club.
If you haven’t been to the gorgeous Punta Cana, now is your chance. It is one of my all-time favorite vacation spots and you get to experience it all. Check out the mainstage, daytime beach parties, after parties, and so much more! Plus, you get free access to the exhilarating Aquapark for thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies all rolled into one incredible weekend. Sounds like a dream come true! This will be an amazing fest because not only do you get internationally established DJs, live performers, and an array of local acts, Meet! Festival offers endless hours of extra fun, from aquatic activities to stunning local cuisines. Pair all of that with the most beautiful hidden spots to chill out and soak up the stunning coastal atmosphere.
Meet! Festival is the brainchild of influential underground label Yet! Records.
As a result, this event was the first and most important event to happen in the history of dance music in the Dominican Republic. The festival itself was legendary and has already helped to consolidate the local scene as an ideal place for industry professionals to enjoy a musical weekend in paradise. Meet! is designed for you to meet your friends, both old and new, and soak up those killer vibes.
Ready to talk about the music? I mean, just visiting is enough but the music will blow you away! The carefully curated mix of locals but international superstars is just the right mix! The festival enhances the local scene in the area plus brings in tons of international tourists to the area. Dance in the sand on daytime beach parties and groove under the moon at night. The main stage is where it is at but don’t miss the closing party! Headliners include the one and only Funk E, long time minimal techno queen Magda, house master Sante, Pokerflat boss Steve Bug, Afro house innovator Themba, plus Blu.A, Laura Pilarte, Lucien Le Grub, Oscar Mula and more. Of course, this is just a second wave after the likes of stripped back techno tastemaker and Clink boss Camea, Defected’s Dutch house star Franky Rizardo, Romanian minimalist Mihai Popovici and Spanish house don Danny Serrano have already been announced.
Meet! Festival is all set to return to the Caribbean with a bang! This legendary event will undoubtedly become a bucket list event for many years to come.
