The Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival is our annual music festival that began in 1991 and has attracted thousands of visitors and performers since its inception. The internationally renowned festival features some of the top artists globally – George Benson, Diana Ross, UB40, Dionne Warwick, Santana, Smokey Robinson, Anita Baker, Luther Vandross, Elton John, Amy Winehouse, Rihanna and John Legend, to name only a few of the illustrious names to have graced the stage and wowed the crowds.
The Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival is one of the biggest events in the region. With just four venues in the early years, patrons are now spoilt for choice with local and international musical and artistic talent in fifteen sites over a nine-day period.
In 2013, the festival was rebranded to include the Arts component which includes the Saint Lucia HOT Couture fashion show, dance, theatre, culinary presentations and art performances. The 2017 Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival will be held from May 5th to 14th.
