“Sun Soaked has become a unicorn in an over saturated festival world. A perfect trinity of sun, water + sand. 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 Cancun, Mexico. The chance to stretch it out and see where we can take this vibe is something that is going to be extraordinary. I cannot wait to share it with you.” –Kaskade
Fans looking to escape winter can count on Sun Soaked being an irresistible getaway especially since it’s designed to deliver the highest quality fan experience. Each guest is considered a VIP and the Festication experience reflects that mission.

Attendees will be able to revel in pool parties, after parties with surprise guests, and leisure time on exquisite beaches. Sun Soaked also offers add-ons of exciting adventures off the beaten path, including catamaran expeditions, tours of Mexico’s famous Cenotes and many other excursions.
