The festival, to be held in Saint Lucia on Thursday, May 7, through Saturday, May 9, 2020, follows the success of the inaugural 2019 Saint Lucia Jazz Festival produced in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center which Jazziz magazine called “the Caribbean’s premier jazz destination.”

The 2020 Saint Lucia Jazz Festival produced in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center will feature the finest names in modern jazz performing in venues throughout Saint Lucia’s distinct Caribbean landscape, including The Ramp on Rodney Bay and Gros Islet Park.

The three-day festival will feature world-renowned artists who have performed on Jazz at Lincoln Center’s season concerts, touring initiatives, and global outposts, as well as throughout Saint Lucia Jazz Festival’s 28-year history.

To date, the diverse lineup showcases artists spanning the Caribbean, the UK, and the US including:

  • Chick Corea’s Vigilette with Carlitos Del Puerto, Marcus Gilmore and Special Guest;

In addition to world-class performances, the 2020 Saint Lucia Jazz Festival will feature “Artists In Education” initiatives including master-classes, professional development, and live performance collaborations with Saint Lucia School of Music students and local jazz artists.

“Building upon last year’s successful inaugural year of the partnership with Jazz at Lincoln Center, the 2020 Saint Lucia Jazz Festival is a combination of premier jazz with a picture-perfect destination,” said minister of tourism Dominic Fedee. “Saint Lucia is thrilled to once again bring world-class performances to jazz fans and music aficionados who will travel to Saint Lucia from around the globe.”

Saint Lucia has been hosting a vibrant jazz festival annually since 1992. For more than 28 years, the festival has attracted visitors from around the world for events and concerts celebrating multiple forms of international, Saint Lucian and Caribbean jazz music.
