Sanya is a tropical city located at the southernmost point of Hainan Island- China’s very own Hawaii. Home to idyllic beaches and rainforests, once a year this exotic city welcomes ravers from far and wide to share their passion for EDM at the International Sanya Music Festival (ISY).
Those who have attended ISY in the past will know all too well just how advanced and elaborate the production is, but the festival organisers want to test their limits and see how far they can really take it… Now onto its third installment, ISY are doing everything in their power to turn this festival into an internationally recognised New Year celebration. That means bigger staging, extended fireworks displays and more industry leading DJs, all as a way to upgrade your overall experience.
ISY Lineup Phase 2 Announced
As to the lineup, phase 1 consisted of Armin van Buuren, the Dutch DJ who’s been dominating the game for years on end and whose 7th studio album Balance is imminent. Last year he helped us to ring in the new year by playing a legendary set as the clock struck midnight, so of course it was only right that he come back this time. Also returning is fellow Dutchman R3HAB, who’s currently ranked at number 12 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs in the world. Playing at ISY for the first time this year are American DJ KSHMR, rising- star Mike Williams and electronic duo Breathe Carolina.
Phase 2 has just been released, and it includes a colossal list of international superstars, like Carte Blanche's DJ Snake and Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Joining them are Salvatore Ganacci, i_o, Quintino, Yultron and a whole host more, take a look below for the full lineup.
As to the local talent, get ready for performances from regional favourites Carta- currently number one in China’s music scene- as well as Panta.Q and YAKO, with Terry Zhong and Dexter King just added!
This December say goodbye to anticlimactic New Year’s Eve parties… pack your bags and head to Sanya for the celebration of the year!
