The 22nd Edition of the Caribbean’s hottest music festivals continues to set records.
The St Kitts Music Festival just concluded its 22nd edition and
preliminary reports a record number of nightly attendees, St Kitts tourism officials said this week.
“Now having completed twenty-two consecutive years and maintaining our position as
one of the largest and longest running music festivals in the Caribbean, we look forward to continuing
to raise the bar as we approach our milestone twenty-fifth anniversary in 2021,”
said St Kitts Tourism Minister Lindsay Grant.
Headliners like Patti LaBelle, Ms. Lauryn Hill , Spice, Nu-Vybes Band International ,
Destra and KES The Band helped to make the SKMF 22 the tremendous success it was.
Other performances included an appearance by the Grammy-nominated Nailah Blackman,
Chakademus & Pliers and Sizzla Kalongi.
“It was gratifying to see our planes arriving at full capacity and our hotels sold out.
Further, with the earlier nightly conclusions to performances, local establishments
had the benefit of additional business from after-parties,” said Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority.
“The St. Kitts Music Festival continues to have a positive impact on our tourism sector year after year.”
The event even trended on Twitter globally, a first for the event in its history.
