What is so unique of Curaçao? Authenticity. For centuries there is a rich, hospitable and a vibrant culture. The heritage is partly European and partly African and the island has more than 50 nationalities. Besides he native language, Papiamentu, Dutch, English and Spanish is spoken.

A visit to Willemstad brings together old and new cultures. The architecture of this vibrant seaport town, the activities and the vibrant neighborhoods form the historic center of the island.

The island also offers the visitors exclusive beaches, spectacular dive sites, distinctive architecture and activities and adventures for everyone.

The greatest thing about exploring Curaçao is that you get the feeling that not everything has been discovered. The island is one of the “ABC islands” – Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao – and a piece of untouched paradise. Relax and feel yourself at home between the working, playing and enjoying inhabitants –do the same as they do for generations: relax!

The festival will open with a free concert by The Titan of Salsa Alberto Barros on Monday evening 30 August on Plaza Brion.

On Friday 3 September there will be performances by: Lionel Richie, George Benson, Luis Enrique, La India, Raul Midón, Michel Camilo and Randel Corsen who, for this performance, has called on the jazz giants Roy Hargrove & Horacio El Negro and Tumbao.

On Saturday 4 September, you can enjoy acts by Simply Red, John Legend, Sergio Mendes, Natalie Cole, Richard Bona, Roy Hargrove, Giovanca, Grupo Fantasma and Mulato.

Day tickets cost $165. Tickets for both days cost $300. Please note that at the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival there will be no special VIP or Red Carpet sections – unlike at other concerts in Curacao when the stage is graced by an international act.
