Commenting on the new event, Director of Tourism Clive McCoy said, “Premier Honourable Dr. Natalio D. Wheatley articulated the vision for events tourism to be an integral part of the BVI’s tourism marketing strategy, as events put a positive spotlight on the destination and stimulate economic activity including accommodation rentals, vehicle rentals, restaurants, and transportation. He has charged my team at the BVI Tourist Board & Film Commission to bring back a 3-day music festival, the likes of which have not been seen here since 2013. We have a fantastic lineup of artists who will surely excite music fans regionally and internationally.”
