Saint Lucia Island Hotels Welcome Music Lovers with Savings

Island Hotels Welcome Music Lovers with Savings for the 25th Anniversary of the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival

As Saint Lucia tunes up for the 25th Annual Jazz and Arts Festival, hotels and resorts island-wide are offering free nights, value-added packages and discounted room rates as much as 55 percent off.

The curtain raises on April 29, 2016, with a line-up that blends island culture, famed musical talent and eclectic music genres. Internationally renowned performers taking the stage this year include Marc Anthony, the top-selling tropical salsa recording artist of all time, singer/songwriter Shaggy, 10-time Grammy winner George Benson, legendary Kool and the Gang, soft rock duo Air Supply, reggae pop singer Omi, French zouk masters Kassav, jazz saxophonist Donald Harrison Jr., and two-time Grammy nominee Joey Alexander. Tickets are available for purchase via http://stluciajazz.org.

The ten-day festival runs through May 8 and will feature a multitude of musical performances and art showcases throughout the island. Locations span from Saint Lucia’s iconic Pigeon Island National Park, where main stage events will kick-off on Friday, May 6, to various other venues island wide. With a continued emphasis on the arts component of the festival, a tribute to Sir Derek Walcott – one of Saint Lucia’s two Nobel Laureates – will be presented through a staging of his play, Omeros, produced by Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London.

An Arts Village with a dedicated site in the north of the island will feature literary, visual and performing arts, while the acclaimed fashion show, “Hot Couture,” will return with a spotlight on Saint Lucia and the region’s cutting edge style. Completing the line-up is a string of other local entertainers, together with more than 100 local artisans, who will perform at jazz venues island wide during the festival.
