The fourth annual Isle of Light festival will take place April 1, 2017 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
This year’s lineup will feature headliners Crystal Castles, fresh off the release of brand new album Amnesty (I), an act that continues to set the standard for a visually arresting and utterly breathtaking live show.
Isle of Light 2017 will also host the triumphant comeback of Dominican artist Rita Indiana, her first show in six years. Having moved on from previous project Rita Indiana y Los Misterios, the performance will be fully solo and is an indication of big things to come on the horizon from the prolific musician and esteemed writer/novelist.
The lineup further consists of international acts alongside local acts from Miami, the Dominican, and the Caribbean, rounding out the diverse lineup. Adding to the culturally immersive experience will be gourmet food and drink curation, on-site installations, and an unmatched environment set on the sparkling surroundings of the Caribbean shoreline.
The festival will also include IOL PLUS, an innovative networking and panel discussion event for music industry professionals. Taking place March 31, the event will feature a series of talks and workshops with national and international speakers providing insight on today’s music industry climate. IOL PLUS is available as a free upgrade with an Early Bird ticket purchase.
Isle of Light is presented by creative collective Mishu. The Miami-based company promotes music events across the U.S. and abroad, notably House of Creatives Music Festival held in Miami, which featured headliners The Flaming Lips last fall. The company also runs a record label arm (Mishu Records) and an original content creation arm (The House of Creatives / HoC).
Touted by Urban Outfitters as a ‘Top 10 Destination Festival,’ Isle of Light has boasted performances by Run The Jewels, Neon Indian, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Shamir, Twin Shadow, The Juan Maclean, Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), Danielle Haim (HAIM), Chromeo, Warpaint, and Soul Clap.
Hosting over 3000 people, the fest extends over the gorgeous shoreline of Santo Domingo’s “Old Colonial Zone” under the historic harbor light house. Attendees are immersed in a vibrant cultural exchange exposing local festival-goers to a diverse lineup of international artists while giving international attendees a chance to explore the plazas, restaurants, hotels, beaches, and natural beauty of the Dominican capital city.
