Join us in St. Lucia this coming weekend as we celebrate Mercury Fest – the ultimate Caribbean Beach Party, and one of the most anticipated events of the summer. Every year, thousands of visitors arrive by boat from neighbouring Martinique and Guadeloupe for a weekend of live music on the beach at Pigeon Island National Landmark. As the event has grown in both size and popularity, so too has the diversity of the guests, with visitors from across the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, Canada, France and Africa flocking to the island.
More than just your typical beach party, Mercury Fest is an upscale event, focused on creating a unique experience for attendees, with delicious local drinks and cocktails, gourmet cuisine, and outstanding entertainment all weekend long, from the hottest French DJs, as well as DJs and artists from across the region. The event kicks off on Friday night in Gros Islet, before moving to the beach at Pigeon Island on the Saturday. Tickets are available locally from The Cell and Sixt Car Rental.
If you’re planning to visit for Mercury Fest, be sure to check us out at Island Mix, on the waterfront adjacent to Big Chef Steakhouse and Tapas On The Bay. In addition to the café and studio, we have our own dock, and offer short-term accommodation. The supermarket, shopping malls and bars and restaurants of Rodney Bay are all within a couple of minutes’ walk, and a water taxi is available to take you back and forth between Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island.
