The most unique Reggae Festival in the Caribbean takes place each year under the first full moon in February 2013. Moonsplash, which is the brain-child of internationally-acclaimed recording artiste, Bankie Banx, brings together celebrated artistes and specially selected headline acts from around the Caribbean and beyond for four exciting, fun-filled evenings of cool classic Caribbean reggae rhythms set against the backdrop of stunning Rendezvous Bay – by moonlight!
“Moonsplash is simple, with intimate performances in a natural setting,” comments founder, Bankie Banx. “We don’t pick any particular genre – there’s folk, blues, reggae, some soul – just good music. It’s a magical thing”.
Moonsplash was originally conceptualized as a roving music festival. The first Moonsplash was held at Sandy Island, now a popular hotspot for those in search of the great romantic beach getaway. Then it evolved into a regional festival, with a performance held each night first in Anguilla, then St Maarten, and finally in St Barths. Eventually, the Dune Preserve became the official home of the Festival in 1995. Crafted from driftwood, retired racing boats and seashells, the funky eclectic style of the Dune ambiance plays a large part in the success of Moonsplash.
Featuring the likes of Moonsplash All-stars, Cat Coore, Benjy Myaz, Omari Banks and Junior Jazz, plus many other favourites, The Moonsplash Music Festival kicks off with a day of fun on the beach on Thursday February 21, with the official Festival Launch party later that evening at 8:30 p.m. Daytime activities continue throughout the three day period, while the nights belong to the headline performances. Friday night is International Nite, while Saturday is dubbed Legend’s Nite. The Festival wraps up on Sunday February 24 with the Dune Festival – a day of fun, frolic, great food and great music at Bankie Banx’s Dune Preserve on stunning Rendezvous Bay. A noteworthy new addition to the Festival is the Kidz-Splash – a special matinee performance for the children which takes place on Thursday afternoon.
