Behind Vujaday is a team of Toronto-based producers with decades of experience in the live event space. These industry veterans are responsible for putting on Toronto-based events like Digital Dreams Music Festival, Electric Island, World Electronic Music Festival and All Day I Dream. The founders have also owned and operated world-renowned clubs in Toronto such as Footwork Nightclub, Coda, The Hoxton and The Velvet Underground, along with working on festivals outside of Toronto including Further Future.

Exploring and Adventures

You won’t have to pick a spot in the sand and stay there; instead, Vujaday lets you take the wheel to get the most out of your island adventure. This theme persists even when you aren’t dancing at the beach, whether you’re checking out historic locations like Harrison’s Cave, going kite-surfing or scuba-diving, embarking on an island safari, or going on a rum tour through the oldest existing rum brewery in the world. More details on what Barbados has to offer can be found on Vujaday's website.
