With palm covered beaches and unique lush inner oasis venue locations Vujaday promises to be a unique festival experience with even more musical bliss filling the air.
The weather was perfect in 2018 and the temperature warm, an average of 30C and a low of 24C which is more than comfortable for those residing in the Northern US States, Canada and UK. Festival attendees will feel comfortable touring and interacting with locals on the island as English is the primary language, off festival tours and exploring the island solo is quite easy to do considering the size of Barbados.
Vujaday was co-founded by Ryan Kruger 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.” The team involved with Vujaday has been involved in the creation and operation of major Toronto based festivals such as Digital Dreams Music Festival, Electric Island, WEMF and All Day I Dream as well as Further Future taking place in the US.
To quote Vujaday: “this is not a Déjà vu; this is something you’ve never seen or felt before. This is Vujaday”
As an attendee of last year I can guarantee you this was an intimate festival experience that I haven’t experienced anywhere else.
