Music legend Prince has joined a host of performers signed on for this year’s Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival.

The event, which begins at Piscadera Bay on Aug. 30, will also include Gladys Knight, Diana Ross, The Roots, Marc Anthony and Erykah Badu, among others.

“The Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival is growing into one of the best music festivals in the world and headlining acts like Prince, Luis Miguel, Gladys Knight and Diana Ross cements the Festival’s reputation,” said Andre Rojer, marketing manager for North America for the Curacao Tourist Board.

This year will be the fourth edition of the festival, which concludes Aug. 31.

“Curaçao competes as an A-list destination for music and cultural tourism in the Caribbean,” Rojer said.
