It's certainly no secret that Your Paradise - the annual music excursion which takes place in paradise, otherwise known as Fiji - is a must-see destination for music savants and travelers.
It's certainly a special occasion, with its stellar line-up and private boat rides and beach performances, and even artists who have traveled the world twice and back still remember their experiences at Your Paradise as some of their most cherished.
Ahead of its fifth edition at the end of 2018, Your Paradise has called upon some of its alumni who've visited the island and experienced the festival before to hear testimonies of their absolute favorite memories.
This year, catch Patrick Topping, What So Not, Mija, Fisher, Nora En Pure and more at Your Paradise from December 7 through 13. Find info and tickets here.

"I'm known for throwing parties in interesting locations but my Doorly & Friends party at Your Paradise a couple of years ago was bonkers. There’s a sand bank that pops up out of the middle of the sea for a few hours at low tide, so we ferried out a bunch of people and some speakers and I played b2b with Justin Martin and Gary Richards until the sea swallowed us up again!"
"[My favorite memory was] ending up on the beach around sunrise with a bunch of new friends and drunkenly hijacking the Bluetooth speaker from each other... while [also] searching for Justin Martin's iPhone.”
"Your Paradise offers something other festivals don’t: a chance to catch glimpses of relaxation in one of the most beautiful places in the world, while still enjoying some great music along the way. Can’t wait to be back!"
What So Not
"Fisher convinced me I had to scrub reef wound with lime after every time I went in the water, [and] my manager forgot to put sunscreen on his feet and got a sunburn so bad it blistered... he needed minor surgery on the island."
"Your Paradise is really, really fun. You're in Fiji with your best friends. It's intimate. I don't know anybody that has gone to Your Paradise that say anything shy of, ‘It was an incredible time!'"
