Jazz Festival Returning To Saint Lucia
Saint Lucia has a lot to offer as an island in the Caribbean. Whether you want on land or water attractions, you can find just about any activity, from a drive-in volcano to scuba diving. Many visitors enjoy a spa day, local walking tours to try local food and beverages, as well as watching the sunset.
Perhaps, all of that sounds good, but you also love music and want to enjoy local artists. Sure, you can find live music in the hotels and bars around town on various days of the week, but what if you could enjoy an entire festival?
Saint Lucia is home to a Jazz Music Festival, which has been on hiatus for three years due to covid. If you plan your trip accordingly, you can attend the Jazz festival listening to pop, Afro beats, and many other sounds. The festival offers views of Rodney Bay.
You will need to plan quickly as the festival happens in spring. The best part about 2023 is the headliner coming to the island. Sting will conduct a performance, as well as Shaggy, who, of course, is known for his reggae. Shaggy and Sting have performed before; in fact, Shaggy came onto the stage in 2018, crashing Sting’s performance. The duo decided to make an album together.
The festival is held from May 5th through the 14th. It is the largest music festival in the Caribbean, which so many musical genres to choose from, including reggae, soca, zouk, and gospel. Since it is such a big deal and many people from neighboring islands come for a day or more, you definitely need to get your room booked and decide on any all-inclusive package that will provide for your needs.
Don’t wait or you could miss this amazing festival.
