Photo Recap: St. Kitts 21st annual music festival
If you’ve never heard of the beautiful independent country of St. Kitts, I’m not surprised, neither had I until getting notice of the St. Kitts 21st annual music festival presented by the St. Kitts Tourism Authority (@StKittsTourism ). The Island of St. Kitts, achieved its independence from England in 1983 and after closing its sugar production business in 2005, focused on becoming a luxury lifestyle destination for a discerning group of world class travelers. One of the major attractions has been its music festival which unites local independent artists with household name performers to create a unique blend of musical stylings. In 2016 several of the major acts, 50 Cent and the Ojays, entertained a crowd of thousands in the islands main arena and created quite the international buzz.
In 2017, the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, did it again with major acts including Shabba Ranks, Mavado, K. Michelle, V. Bozeman, Goo Goo Dolls, Third World and Credence Clearwater Revisited, once again proving this music festival is a major player in the music festival realm. Couple that with an amazing natural beauty which boasts amazing vistas, dazzling blue waters and a people who are kind, caring and friendly, I’d say this is the perfect annual destination for those looking for a veritable piece of heaven on earth.
Here’s a very brief look at what the international crowds and local audiences have been treated to thus far and stay tuned for a more in-depth look at the magnificent country of St. Kitts and it’s magical music festival!!!
