Prestigious Vogue magazine says St Lucia Carnival can't be missed

World famous fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue says that St Lucia has one of the 'The Caribbean Carnivals You Don’t Want to Miss This Summer.'

In a piece posted on Sunday, June 24, 2018, St Lucia's carnival was hailed as one of the region's most promising offerings.

On St Lucia, the piece says: " One of the most interesting parts of St. Lucia’s growing Soleil carnival is its take on soca music. An increasingly popular (and addictive) sub-genre of the music, called Dennery Segment, is rooted in St. Lucian percussion and Kreyòl lyrics. Its sounds can be heard far beyond St. Lucia in every Caribbean carnival. On the island, Soleil is celebrated over 26 days in July and includes beach fetes, street parties, and Calypso concerts. A night at Sugar Beach, with the mighty Piton mountains nearby, is the best way to close out days of nonstop action."

Other carnivals recommended by the influential magazine were Bermuda, Barbados, Grenada and even London.
