ANGUILLA–The 27th annual Moonsplash will take place this year from March 9-12 during the full moon. It will be at the Dune Preserve on Rendezvous Bay and is organized as always by Anguilla’s own Bankie Banx whose style combines reggae, folk, R&B and jazz. In 1990 Bankie conceived of a unique reggae music festival held under a full moon – a concept that has proven to be incredibly successful, with hundreds of people from around the world coming to the island for the musicians, ambiance, and unrivaled stage and venue.
The festival is known for bringing together internationally-acclaimed and up and coming recording artistes from across the globe for three days of spectacular entertainment – under the full moon. “Our on-island events and festivals are magnets that attract incremental business to our island,” said Cardigan Connor, Parliamentary Secretary. “Moonsplash kicks off our 2017 Festival Calendar of Events which we promote in all our overseas markets as they are critical to growing our business. They provide compelling reasons for visitors to choose Anguilla for their next vacation destination,” he stated.
Details of this year’s event and top artistes will be announced shortly.
