Aruba’s hottest music festival has a major headliner for this year’s edition: global superstar Alicia Keys.

Keys will join a stacked list of performers, including Maxwell and Marlon Wayans, among others, for the festival, which takes place May 23-28.

“Now in its 18th year, The Soul Beach Music Festival has become one of Aruba’s most sought-after events, bringing together world-renowned musical artists and comedians over a span of five days,” said Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA). “The One happy island welcomes visitors and locals alike to indulge in Aruba’s natural beauty, including Eagle Beach, the No. 4 beach in the world, and cutting-edge arts scene.”


Keys will headline the proceedings on May 26, while Maxwell will headline May 27.

Wayans will headline the festival’s comedy night.

“We are thrilled to be back in Aruba with an impressive lineup featuring Alicia Keys, Maxwell, and Marlon Wayans,” said Mark Adkins, Executive Producer of Soul Beach Festival Productions. “Soul Beach continues to provide an amazing time to hang out with friends and create memories that will last a lifetime. The island of Aruba elevates this event from a Music Festival to a Music Paradise.”
