A top Caribbean music festival is back in Saint Lucia this summer with the return of Mercury Fest.

The beach music party, produced by Epic Events, is one of the region’s most anticipated summer festivals.

This year’s fete will be headlined by Jamaican reggae and dancehall artists Wayne Wonder and Kranium, who will be joined by Dennery Segment Megastars- Black Boy, Cooyah and Umpa.

A lineup of top DJs from Saint Lucia, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Trinidad and Tobago and St Maarten will also be on hand.

“Last year the event welcomed foreign nationals from Martinique, France, the United States, Trinidad, Dominica, Guadeloupe, the UK, El Salvador and the Dominican Republic and we look forward to welcoming all the visitors who will grace our shores during the action-packed weekend,” said Christopher Gustave, Marketing Manager for Caribbean and Events at the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority.

This year’s event will include even more beach amenities, including waterfront cabanas and an expanded foam pit, among others.

“Mercury Fest is proving to be an ultimate experience that has exposed its true potential as a major visitor attraction. With hoteliers, taxi and tour operators as well as vendors who directly benefit from the economic activity of this event eagerly awaiting its staging, we anticipate that this mega event will continue to progress as a global attraction, placing even more spotlight on Saint Lucia as the events capital of the Caribbean,” said Saint Lucia Tourism Minister Dominic Fedee.
