Caribbean-On-Line / St. Barts / Events / Local Stuff / News / Boubou's Music Festival, Christopher Hotel

Boubou's Music Festival, Christopher Hotel

After three years, Boubou's Music Festival returns! It all began in 2001 when Boubou and his friend and performing artist Yannick Noah first thought of hosting a music festival in Saint Barth. Boubou, who lives in Saint Barth, is the owner of the restaurants Do Brazil on Shell Beach and La Mandala in Gustavia. His friend Yannick often visits the island. Years ago, Yannick and his band, the Zam Zam, performed frequently in various locales on the island, often inviting local musicians to play along with them. Boubou thought about inviting other musicians to do the same. And, thus, the festival was born! They successfully staged a festival in 2001, 2002 and 2003. So, we've waited three years for the next one. This year's festival takes places from August 9 through August 20 at the Hotel Christopher in Point Milou. Access will be by shuttle bus or by foot for those who live or are staying nearby. The hotel is selling packages for three phases of the festival: Backstage Time (8/1 - 8/8), which includes the time of festival setup and preparations from 7 am to 6 pm; Live Time (8/9 - 8/15 or 8/15-8/21), during which music rehearsals and live concerts will take place between 3 pm and 4 am; and After Show Time (8/21-8/29), during which the festival sets will be torn down from 7 am to 6 pm. Some packages include a car and a pass for two people to the festival.

we have been a fan since his first concert at St Barts- any idea when the next music festival with him will be?
