St. Lucia Jazz & Art Festival

St. Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival 2023

Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival is held every year in spring. During the festival’s days the visitors can enjoy diverse concerts, various art shows, street parties and many more surprises.

While billed as a jazz festival, the event, now in its 30th year, features performers in an array of different genres, including hip-hop, reggae, soca, pop and world beats.

The festival kicks off on May 5 with reggae artists Shenseea and Kes the Band. Other artists slated to perform include pianist and composer Gustavo Casenave, Buju Banton, Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons, Rema, Ayra Starr, CKay and Kizz Daniel. Organizers will also host a tribute to Saint Lucia’s Luther Francois, dubbed the Godfather of Saint Lucian jazz. The festival concludes with a Mother’s Day performance by the headliners Sting and Shaggy.

During the entire festival, there will be community-based events across the island, emphasizing the jazz and arts scenes.

The arts side of the festival will be held under the theme “Art and the City” from May 7 to 11  and includes visual and literary arts, theater and fashion. There will be craft and souvenir markets and a variety of events at area parks.

Pigeon Island National Park is the setting for the festival’s musical performances, while arts events will take place in several spots: Derek Walcott Square, William Peter Boulevard, Constitution Park, Pointe Seraphine and Serenity Park.

The event is finished.
