Artistes impress at 2023 Music Festival

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - THE 25th Edition of the St. Kitts Music Festival wrapped up in fine style in the wee hours of Sunday (June 25) with the final performers belting out their popular lyrics.


    From Night One when the curtains were raised to when the dust settled, patrons from far and wide enjoyed the show, as they jumped, pranced, danced, and gyrated to the sounds of local, regional and international artistes who graced the stage and left their mark.


    From Stadics and Bagnall who opened the show on Night One to Patrice and Nailah Blackman who had the tempo going. But it was Dexta Dapps who serenaded the female patrons with his raunchy lyrics, while Mr. ‘Wotless’ - Kes  the Band - brought the high groovy energy and had the crowd in the palm of his hands, dripping wet with sweat on a windy morning.


    That was followed by the local bands which brought the curtains down on the opening night as the sun was rising.


    Night Two was built as the night for the young Byron Massiah to stake his claim as one of the up and coming artistes. He gave a very good account of himself with his ‘Taliban’ lyrics to the delight of the large gathering at the Warner Park Cricket Stadium, while Chronixx and Koffee were on point with their performances, as well as Skillibeng, Govana, 313 Family and Anthony B.


    But Saturday, the third and final night, saw the Africa giant Burna Boy showing why he was the headliner of the Festival with his popular lyrics - rocking the crowd which enjoyed his performance.


    In their social media post, the St. kitts Music Festival Committee thanked all who attended and for making it one of the island’s most memorable events.


    “A HUGE THANK YOU for making the 25th Anniversary of St. Kitts Music Festival an experience like no other! We're still riding the waves of music and memories. From the mind-blowing performances that had us dancing under the stars to the unforgettable moments that united us as one big musical family, each and every one of you contributed to the magic of this milestone celebration,” the Committee wrote.


    Prime Minister Dr. Terrance Drew commended the Tourism Minister, Marsha Henderson, for organizing the Festival, writing in part: “I want to take this opportunity to thank Minister Hon. Marsha Henderson and her team for an excellent 25th Edition of the St. Kitts Music Festival. Thanks to all who played a part in the organizational process. You did an outstanding job. Take a bow. You raised the bar.”


    The St. Kitts Music Festival is used as a promotional tool to launch the summer of activities for the Federation to drive tourists to the island. 


    The Summer period is often seen as the slowest on the calendar, where tourist arrival numbers are very low.


    This year, however, the Government has seen success in more airlifts from Miami and the region, while having more sea ferry arrivals from neighbouring islands.
