It’s The Biggest Caribbean Festival in June – Visit the St. Kitts Music Festival 2023
by Lou-Ann Jordan Jun 5, 2023
It’s the biggest Caribbean music festival, and it takes place this June.
The St. Kitts Music Festival 2023 runs from 22-24 June 2023. The weekend will be memorable, with electrifying performances by local and foreign acts. Among the entertainers performing over the three-night affair are Byron Messia, Govana, Skillibeng, Skinny Fabulous, Patrice Roberts, Chronixx, Koffee, Air Supply and Burna Boy. In addition to the weekend’s main attractions, there will be other outlying activities preceding and following.
Since its beginning, the event has grown with each succeeding year. Today, many other regional festivals pattern its model. However, it all began back in 1996. The Shak Shak Festival was an ambitious undertaking that would set St. Kitts and Nevis apart for over two decades. It presented the opportunity for a remarkable exchange where a great number of visitors would descend on the Federation, helping to stimulate the economy, and Kittians would offer a one-of-a-kind show.
The exchange continues and the festival still provides an outstanding display of local, regional, and international talent. Organisers do not fail to disappoint as each year sees an attention-grabbing line-up of performers representing soca, dancehall, reggae, lovers rock, R&B and other musical genres.
Such diversity, throughout the years, has allowed the St. Kitts Music Festival to maintain its popularity. It’s a musical experience highly anticipated in the Federation and throughout the Caribbean and the diaspora. One of St. Kitts and Nevis’ biggest attractions, this June, like many others over the last two decades, will see multitudes descend on the island.
