Saturday night, after a six-year absence, another edition of the Flip Flop Festival took place, presented by Chill Beer and Elite Empire Entertainment. From early on, thousands of people gathered at Harbor Arena to enjoy a festival with various musical performances, both local and international. We must mention that there were also visitors from abroad who either traveled specifically for this event or were already in Aruba.

After learning that the event had to be moved from Bushiri Beach to Harbor Arena, the Elite Productions team, along with all logistical partners, worked around the clock to prepare the venue. These combined efforts ensured that the public enjoyed a fully prepared Harbor Arena, experiencing the Flip Flop Festival. From the mega stage to the Caribang DJs tent, the food court, and various bars, the public got their money's worth for their entrance tickets.

Musically, every fan, regardless of their preferred genre or specific band/DJ, enjoyed the entire night. Speaking with various attendees, it can be summarized that the performances by KES The Band stood out. KES took the stage with their signature energy, performing all their past hits and some new songs, which the audience also enjoyed. Naturally, other acts like Mical Teja and Angel Dior, who were on the island for the first time, also delighted the audience satisfactorily. Alex Sensation, along with Brazil 21, also set the atmosphere. Our local bands certainly did not disappoint the crowd. A big congratulations to Tsunami, Mystical Connection, and Ziggi Recado & The Nayamari, who put on a spectacular show for every fan.

During the Flip Flop Festival, the art of DJing is also very important, and for this reason, our local and international DJs kept the public dancing from 5 PM until the early morning hours. This year, a separate tent was introduced where the music was different from the main stage. Here, the Dutch organization Caribang successfully combined different local and international DJs. This area was very well-received, as people were dancing all night long. Master of ceremonies Tarrick Ras, Big Reckless, MC Samil, and Mark Benson also knew how to hype up the crowd, keeping the energy high and the excitement palpable throughout the entire event.

Chill Beer, as the main partner, along with other brands like Sprite and Bacardi, were also highly visible during the festival with features like 'Happy Hours', 'Mojito Bar by Bacardi', and a '360 Photo Booth' by Sprite.

Elite Empire Entertainment and Chill Beer wish to thank each of the thousands of people who attended the festival. A big thank you also goes to all the authorities in Aruba and everyone who worked to make the festival a reality. Stay tuned for Flip Flop Festival 2025!
