“Three main stage venues, three community venues, over 10,000 visitors, over 40,000 patrons, millions of dollars injected into our local economy. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the power of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival,” said Thaddeus Antoine, Chairman of the Jazz and Arts Festival, during the kickoff of the online media launch.

Saint Lucia Gears Up For Fun

The 2024 edition of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival, curated by the Cultural Development Foundation, will have several components brought over from previous years: Kingdom Night, Pure Jazz, Caribbean Fusion, World Beats and the Ultimate Celebration, but this year, shares Antoine, there’s more—and by request.

“We have added a second night devoted entirely to jazz, with an injection of elements of arts that make our festival truly unique. But this year, there is a twist. We have decided to generally go down memory lane with the lineup, particularly for Sunday, Mother’s Day, it’s the Ultimate Celebration, with throwback, nostalgic, and very sing-along music.”

He added the festival would also continue to keep a focus on sustainability and “going green” by working on keeping it a fully digital experience by making use of digital or mobile ticketing, meaning digital cash to access and make purchases in the venue.

Saint Lucia’s art scene will also be celebrated during the Festival, which will continue the “Art and the City” theme from 2023. The flagship event is centered around the artwork of Saint Lucian artist Llewellyn Xavier, who will have more than 1,000 of his creations in the largest one-person exhibition in the island’s history.

Art and the City will feature five categories of events that will span everything from culinary and musical experiences to dance and educational components.

Tickets and packages are available starting in February.
