"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
February 9th, 2013
The beautiful island of St. Kitts is filled not just with amazing scenery and friendly personalities but a rich culture of homegrown music, as well as their embracing of music from all over. The annual St. Kitts Music Festival testifies to this, as they feature both local artists and artists from abroad, such as John Legend, Toni braxton, T-Pain, Wyclef Jean, Ne-Yo, Boyz II Men, Sean Paul, Chris Brown, and dozens of other of international names. You’ll find Gospel, R&B, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Soca, Calypso, and all sorts of genres with some sort of Caribbean flavor.
Not only is this festival known for the brilliant performances (I mean, T-Pain!), but the food is always being raved about, as West Indian dishes are enjoyed by both locals and tourists alike.
Is coming to St. Kitts for the festival worth it? Well three days of music, food, and partying in the Caribbean definitely sounds nice. Besides the festival, though, St. Kitts is filled with plenty to enjoy. It was considered one of the top 12 spots that should be on your list for 2012 by Caribbean Travel + Life magazine and named a top destination for 2011 by both AOL Travel and British Airways. Sight-seeing could bring you to the Caribelle Batik factory, Brimstone Hill Fortress National Pakr, the only man-made UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Eastern Caribbean, and you could go zipline, golf, shop, go to the casinos, the beaches, and other traditional vacation pastimes.
