Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival Extends Its Global Reach (Festival patrons now have on-the-go access via Mobile App!)
Performances will be set against the iconic and historic Pigeon Island National Landmark backdrop, along with other scenic vistas across Saint Lucia, showcasing an innovative infusion of Music and Arts designed to highlight the island’s rich historic and cultural legacy.
Greater strides are being made to broaden the global reach of the iconic Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival with the introduction of a highly interactive mobile app.
Targeted at tech savvy festival patrons, the App affords smart phone users with Android or IOS powered devices the ability to view the complete festival lineup, book hotel rooms and car rentals. Additionally, the App is compatible with social media, enabling users to set reminders and sync with friends who plan on attending the festival’s various events.
Additional App features include artiste bios, picture galleries, audio samples and links to artiste musical catalogues, nightlife and entertainment, restaurants, excursions and Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival news.
“We believe in evolution” says Louis Lewis, Director of the Saint Lucia Tourist Board, “As our Festival product continues to evolve, so has the manner in which we interact with the public. We’ve designed a global festival, and now, we’re catering to the global consumer.”
With interactive accounts created for the festival on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube, the addition of the app is poised to become the cornerstone of an impressive digital marketing push put forth by the Saint Lucia Tourist Board (SLTB).
The Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival App is available for free download via Google Play and the Apple App Store.
