Welcoming a selection the biggest names in electronic, pop, reaggaeton and hip-hop to the Dominican Republic, The Paradise took over the stunning location of Cap Cana, Dominican Republic from December 20-21, 2019.

Currently in its fifth year, festival organizers PAV Events and CMN outdid themselves by expanding the festival to two days for the first time in its history. Incorporating a number of local artists & chefs, custom art installations and VIP experiences, The Paradise created an environment where for just two days, “The Dream Is Real” for over 30,000 attendees over Friday and Saturday.Kicking off at 4PM on Friday with local talent Miguel Duarte and Solo Fernandez, the festival doors opened ahead of sunset on the golden sands on Juanillo Beach. Caleb Calloway set things off on the ‘Rumors’ stage as the crowds poured in for the start of their two day experience.

As the sun set, revelers continued to enjoy the likes of Rayawana, CRAY, and Acid Mondays across the ‘Live’, ‘Dance’ and Rumors stages. Local chefs served up Dominican specialities and delights from a wide range of restaurants and food trucks, including a special reservation only pop up from Modelo and Dominican Chef Erik Malmsten.

The energy on the beach kicked into high gear Friday night with Anuel AA’s performance on the main stage, while Alan Walker ignited the ‘Dance’ stage and Nic Fanciulli got the crowd grooving at the ‘Rumors’ stage. Crowds poured into the live stage anxiously awaiting a performance by fan favorite Maluma, as well as dance headliners Alesso and Martin Garrix. Those in favor of underground house and techno stuck around the ‘Rumors’ stage as head honcho Guy Gerber and Jamie Jones took to the decks.

While exploring the site, attendees immersed themselves in the custom art installations including mirrored surfaces from SOFTLab, sound and light experiences from Sub Haze, and mystic computer generated chants from Romain Tardy.

The doors of the festival opened earlier on day two with an eager crowd ready to enjoy the stacked lineup beginning with Trending Tropics, Omar Andino and Natalia Roth across the three stages. A little bit of rain didn’t hold back the energetic crowd who enjoyed performances from Argentenian trap queen Cazzu and Puerto Rican star Jon Z and who took to the main stage as the day transitioned to night.

Heavy hitters Tchami and Alok put on outstanding shows ahead of a special surprise B2B set from Tiësto and Martin Garrix, who was followed by dance headliner Marshmello. Bob Moses and Years & Years lined things up for a headlining performance from Bad Bunny, offering up a mix of indie, dance and reggaeton on the main stage.

Saturday’s beautifully bazaar-like decorated ‘Rumors’ stage offered a stacked lineup with each DJ jumping in seamlessly between sets. Birds of Mind, Bill Patrick and Audiofly took on earlier duties and night time saw the return of Guy Gerber for his second set of the weekend followed by closing duties from Marco Carola.

PAV Events in partnership with CMN and No Limit Entertainment put on an event that will go down in history. For the first time expanding The Paradise into two days and bringing new experiences to the island, involving the top international talent, up and coming Latin artists, gastronomy, art, technology and innovation, where thousands of people joined in to live a night where their dreams became reality.
