If you’ve ever been to a music festival in Aruba, you know that they are very well attended. Not only does this show how much thought and planning goes into an Aruban musical festival, it also illustrates the importance of music in Aruba as a cultural element.

Whether it’s international hits or authentic Aruba music, our community has a deep appreciation for music and the way it makes us feel.

Traditional Aruban music, a mix of waltz, danza, mazurka and tumba, is typically performed during festivals and holidays, including Dia di Betico, Flag & Anthem Day, Dera Gai and the weekly Bon Bini Festival.

The local community and island visitors mark their calendars for three of the hottest annual Aruba music festivals: the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival, the Aruba Soul Beach Music Festival and the Aruba Summer Music Festival. All three festivals feature celebrated international and local artists.
