HBO producing exclusive content at the St. Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival for the second year
WILLEMSTAD - HBO has teamed up with the St. Lucia Tourist Board to showcase the best of the 2015 St. Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival, where a production crew is live on-site to capture interviews and exclusive footage of musical performances, tourist attractions and fashion events. This marks the second HBO-produced special in St. Lucia.
The segment will feature not only artists from throughout the Caribbean – including St. Lucia, Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad – but also highlights of both the festival events and the island itself, to be aired on HBO’s regional feeds in the Caribbean, Latin America and Brazil.
“This partnership gives us a unique opportunity to provide our viewers throughout the territory with a glimpse of the beauty, culture and energy of St. Lucia,” said Javier Figueras, Corporate Vice President of Affiliate Sales for HBO Latin America. “We’re excited to once again be producing original content directly from the Caribbean, and this is just another way we’re bringing subscribers more of what’s important and relevant to them.”
The 11-day festival features both local and world-renowned musicians, artists and vendors and is celebrated as one of the premiere jazz festivals in the Caribbean.
“We are thrilled to be working in collaboration with HBO to showcase the 24th edition of the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival. The reach that HBO affords our festival is tremendous, and we are so pleased that the festival can be viewed in so many homes across the Caribbean and Latin America. We are further excited about the potential for future collaboration for the benefit of both HBO and Saint Lucia,” shared Louis Lewis, Director of Tourism for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board.
