Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival: Aug 26th –  Aug 30th 2020.

In 2010, the festival in Rotterdam gained a younger sister: Curaçao North Sea Jazz. Good music combined with the tropical atmosphere on the island makes the formula a huge success.

Curaçao North Sea Jazz has grown to be a household name on the island and far beyond. Ever since the first edition the festival has attracted big musical names, such as Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Bruno Mars, Sting, Juan Luis Guerra, Rod Stewart, Enrique Iglesias, Alicia Keys, Herbie Hancock, Christina Aguilera, Earth, Wind & Fire, Lenny Kravitz, Tom Jones, and Prince, among many others. With a total of sixteen acts divided over three stages the Curaçao edition may be smaller than the one in Rotterdam, but certainly no less extraordinary. Let’s be honest: great music in sultry temperatures on a tropical island, what could possibly be better?

Our customisable experiences are designed for persons who:

  • are too busy and you don’t have time to plan anything.
  •  want to experience everything Carnival.
  • do not have a clue about what to do.
  • are just “lazy”.
