Before I get into the St.Kitts Music Festival I’ll touch on the fringe events that you must attend, all of them are my personal favorites. These fringe events are great summer starters, builds and maintains the excitement for the music festival and gives you a taste of  how we party here in St.Kitts!

Bar Crawls are also a great way to see St.Kitts while drinking and wukking up!

The St.Kitts Music Festival will take place from June 23-27, 2021. A welcome party is usually hosted on the first day and then everyone makes their way to Escape by Xpress Events, a great pre-fete for the musical festival. The next three nights consists of top tier entertainment. The first wave of artists were released in December and the last wave of artists were released in February with a party. The marketing for this festival is so slept on, they do an excellent job every year. The St.Kitts Music Festival has welcomed artists such as KES, Trey Songz, Ciara, Lauryn Hill and even Buju Banton in previous years. This year we are blessed with more great artists! The St.Kitts Music Festival has something for everyone, there’s atleast one night that you will refuse to miss!

Yes, we starting to Jam in the middle of the week! I do not know how I did it last year as I had to wake up early for work everyday but MONEY HAFFI MEK. Thursday Night is considered “Jump Up Night”. This night always consists of both soca and dancehall artists. We fetin’ and jumping up hard this night. I do wish that in the future the festival includes DJs as well specifically for this night. Here’s a quick look at the St.Kitts Music Festival Thursday night line up!

Before, I considered Friday night, “Reggae Night” but this time around we’re getting best of both worlds, the St.Kitts Music Festival knows what they are doing. We have artists such as Future (Yes Future, as in great rapper Future, as in toxic Future, as in Life Is Good Future, eeppp) who will be sharing the stage with other artists such as Wiz Kid and Beres Hammond. Here’s a quick look at the St.Kitts Music Festival Friday night line up!

Tickets

The St.Kitts Music Festival general admission tickets are currently available on their site, http://www.stkittsmusicfestival.com . They are currently being sold for XCD $135 and may increase as time gets closer to the festival. Let’s be honest here, the St.Kitts Music Festival is inexpensive! There’s a top tier line up every single night and to see one of the many artists anywhere in the world will cost ALOT.

There are two VIP lounges available at the St.Kitts Music Festival. They are hosted by Xpress Events and the White Sands, Carambola Beach Club. I am hoping to try one this year as I have heard great things and it is perfect if you will like an all inclusive experience.

St.Kitts has one airport, the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport. Airlines such as American Airlines, Delta, Liat, British Airways, Winair  and much more do fly to this airport. I will recommend staying from June 23rd to 30th to discover our beautiful island and enjoy the full festival experience.
