One of the Caribbean’s most popular music festivals began in 1991 in St. Lucia. The St. Lucia Jazz Festival is a ten day celebration where musicians and tourists gather to enjoy jazz, R&B, and calypso music. Many famous people including Santana, Lauryn Hill, Smokey Robinson, and Wyclef Jean have performed at the festival.
Concerts where these famous musicians perform are held in a large outdoor auditorium located on Pigeon Island. This auditorium is surrounded by rainforests and lush grasslands. Numerous other concerts are held at locations throughout the island. Guests can enter many of these performances free of charge.
