|As Groovefest heads into its fourth year in the Dominican Republic and coming off the back of a hugely successful edition in Malta, things are being shaken up so it remains the freshest combination of tropical Caribbean holidaying and peerless festival experiences. Many international headliners are all lined up, and once again it is set to raise the bar of tropical festival standards.In 2016, a new location is being used for Groovefest that is better connected, offers more party venues and even better views of paradise. That place is the plush and impossibly perfect 5* Barcelo Bavaro Beach – Adults Only Resort. This is a where fine sandy beach, turquoise waters and incredible sunsets all form the backdrop to the magical musical offerings. The resort for your stay is as luxurious as your needs require and based on the idyllic Bavaro beach, which has been voted as one of the best beaches in the Caribbean and rivalling any found across the world.
During your stay, all food, drink, alcohol, transfers from Punta Cana Airport — one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean with direct flights from all over the world—and full festival passes are included in the price, meaning the only extras are the carefully curated boat parties which take place during the week. This year guests will be able to stay for three or seven nights and enjoy ultra comfortable rooms with first class decor and choose from nine exquisite á la carte restaurants and all the worldly offerings they have from Japanese to Mexican, seafood specialists to myriad meat treats. Truly making Groovefest stand out as the ultimate blend of holiday and festival in one package.
Groovefest has built its stella reputation on paying attention to the smallest details, great production and for getting DJs to play differently than usual and really embrace this uniqueness of this festival location. That will be true again this year and the first wave of names announced includes DirtyBird boss Claude von Stroke and chief label mates Justin Martin and J.Phlip, legendary Chicago house man Derrick Carter, acid innovator DJ Pierre, New York house king and one half of Masters at Work Kenny Dope, chart topping UK stars Gorgon City, Defected’s Sam Divine, Circus ring leader Yousef, plus Bobby & Steve, Terry Hunter, Worthy, Sy Sez, Dantiez Sanderson, D-Vine Sounds, Kidnap Kid, DJ Jess Bays and many more to come.
