St.Thomas will host musicians and entertainers for the America’s Paradise USVI Music Festival from July 16 to 19.
This year’s slate will include Cedric The Entertainer, Barrington Levy, Destra, Don Omar, Third World, Future, and the Virgin Islands’ own reggae artist Pressure Busspipe, among others.
Pressure Busspipe saw regional acclaim following the release of his popular single “Virgin Islands Nice.”
“Special events such as Music Fest help to drive business throughout the summer months,” said Beverly Nicholson-Doty, Commissioner of Tourism for the United States Virgin Islands. “We are looking forward to not only enjoying some great music and entertainment, but also welcoming many visitors and festival goers to Charlotte Amalie next month.
Several hotels, including Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, Pavilions & Pools Hotel, and Sapphire Beach Condominium resort, will be offering special packages to encourage travelers.
