There ain’t no party, like a Heineken Regatta party!
Thousands of people – from locals to tourists and from sailors to music lovers – collectively enjoy the 4 nights of parties filled with music and entertainment from leading regional and international artists. Stimulating music, original repertoires and surprising guest gigs, enjoyed with a perfect ice-cold Heineken, is the ultimate combination for the best party of your life. This year’s 37th St. Maarten Heineken Regatta provides world class sailboat racing combined with the hottest concerts and after-parties. Concerts held every night at unique spectacular locations on the island showcasing great local and international artists. Who could ask for more after a day of challenging and fun-filled racing in the Caribbean’s largest sailing event?
Why are the St Maarten Heineken Regatta parties so unique and exciting?
With so many different artists specifically chosen for the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta concerts, it is truly a melting pot of all the people, local and visitors, enjoying the many different genres of music. Over the years, we’ve seen a vast array of artists, from the legendary reggae superstars such as Jimmy Cliff, The Wailers and Shaggy to the hip hop Black Eyed Peas. In 2014 Red Foo and the Party Rock Crew was the main act and at the 2015 edition we had Kool and the Gang stealing the show. 2016’s event closed off with the very popular Akon. Every night and every concert has its own and unique atmosphere and style, the only things you can be sure of is great music and great beer.
‘Serious Fun’; these two words represent the whole event perfectly, because on St. Maarten we take our fun seriously. On the one hand, you have many different classes of boats from all over the world competing for top sailing honors and on the other hand we have great on-shore parties every night at the best locations of the island! You will party on the beach and next to the sea. You will stand with your feet in the sand with an ice-cold Heineken listening to great music, while the sun goes down into the bright blue sea.
Come and experience it yourself and have ‘Serious Fun’ with us from March 2 – March 5, 2017!
