Since April 2015, Grenada has waited with bated breath for this “first of its kind one of a kind event” as dubbed during the year of waiting. The week of 5 April has come and gone to overwhelmingly positive feedback about the first and lasting positive impression this event has created in Grenada, the region and the rest of the world.

Among these are the showcasing of Grenadian musicians at an international standard; adding value to destination Grenada with a quality product; the positioning of ecological awareness — our environmental footprint — within a cultural and entertainment space; fostering collaboration and ownership — critical to the long-term success of the festival — across a vast range of stakeholders.
