Chris Philips direct from Saint Lucia

This weekend Chris Philips will be broadcasting from the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival – tune in on Friday between 10am and 2pm and Saturday and Sunday between 2 and 5pm. Chris and the team will be bringing you a taste of the music, plus interviews with the stars performing including AZIZA, Robert Glasper, Avery*Sunshine, Denys Baptiste, Lalah Hathaway, Jazzmeia Horn and Jazz FM’s Vocalist of the Year Zara McFarlane.

Chris will be taking in the sights and the sounds from the beautiful Caribbean island and talking to some of the people that make it so special, thanks to our partners Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa, British Airways and the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority.

Saint Lucia hosts 5 festivals throughout the year. In addition to the Jazz Festival there is also the Food & Rum Festival (January), Saint Lucia Carnival (16-17 July), the Roots & Soul Festival (31 August - 2 September) and the Arts & Heritage Festival (October), all part of the Soleil Summer festival schedule.

Aside from festivals, there are so many things to see and do in Saint Lucia – you’re spoilt for choice! Visit the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano (where you can even take a mud bath!) or try a boat cruise along the spectacular coastline, with snorkelling and scuba diving.
