The Island of St. Kitts is getting ready to welcome visitors to the island for its annual music festival and its ‘Summer of Fun’ programme.

The St. Kitts Music Festival – which is now in its 25th year – will take place from 22-24 June and will treat visitors to a weekend of Soul, Soca, Jazz, R&B, Reggae and more.

One of the most diverse musical events in the Caribbean, the festival draws A-list musicians, island visitors, and locals for a celebration of live music at the Warner Park Stadium.

Henderson, Minister of Tourism, International Transport, Civil Aviation, Urban Development, Employment, and Labour.    "The weekend of events becomes more spectacular every year, and each year delivers a tremendous positive impact on our local economy."
