A music concert experience like no other! Now in its 14th year, the Soul Beach Music Festival hosted by Aruba is the place to be Memorial Day weekend May 21-26. Ten- time Grammy winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and multi-platinum artist Robin Thicke co-headline to light up the Soul Beach Amphitheater with triple platinum hit makers SWV and stunning Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Ashanti. Along with stellar comedians, featuring Rickey Smiley, raising the roof with contagious laughter, the jam-packed party package is fused with exclusive nightclub after-parties at Reflextions, and sun drenched daytime beach parties. Witnessing pure musical virtuoso and riding the lyrical waves of the chic beach side main stage performances, festival-goers will embark on a one of a kind experience bringing them close to the action at the main stage concerts organically nestled along the sand laced shores. The natural splendor of Aruba’s elegant resorts, romantic adventures, and the region’s finest cuisine are topped off with the welcoming hearts of Arubans who join the revved up entertainment and the colossal celebrations Memorial Day weekend.
“Every year the country of Aruba is tangibly excited to receive the festival artists and participants.” says Otmar Oduber, Minister of Tourism, Transportation, Primary Sector and Culture. “Outside of the jam- packed schedule of world-class entertainment, we Arubans love every chance to share our lifestyle, cuisine, music and natural beauty with our visitors”.
