Barbados Jazz Festival
Debuting in 1993 the Barbados Jazz Festival, celebrating the best in international and local jazz talent, quickly became a major annual Caribbean event.
The venues reflected the diverse nature of the festival... the modern Sir Garfield Sobers gymnasium for a large crowd; the open air Farley Hill National Park for a day of picnicking and jazz; and the historic Sunbury plantation house.
Patrons attending the Barbados Jazz Festival were treated to the delights of all-star performances. Artists such as Harvey Mason & Diana Jarrett, David Burnett & Dwane Husbands, James Blunt, Kite, Angie Stone, Glenn Lewis, Nexcyx, Chrisette Michele and many more graced the stage.
Unfortunately the Barbados Jazz Festival has not been held since 2010. We hope it will return again soon. Until then...
