The venue changed slightly. This time Bequia Plantation Hotel was the site of the Music Fest for Friday and Saturday afternoon. This was great as it is right along the Belmont Walkway which borders the anchorage, meaning close and easy for us to get to. Even easier than the other location - DeReef in Lower Bay.

|Toby Armstrong and Band - so good|

|Elvis showed up to dance - he lives in Mystique by the way|
*To those running the 2018 Music Fest - Never, ever hire the sound people you had this year. Feedback screeches at a professional music event are not acceptable. Having them throughout the entire weekend, unforgivable. Besides killing the crowds ears, the sound issues frustrated the talented musicians worst of all. NOT kewl!! Fix it!
|Local ex-pat and Swedish cruiser we see every year at this Music Fest|
One of the fun things of the Bequia Music Fest is seeing the same ex-pats attending each year. This year we finally had a chance to meet and visit a bit with Cheeky, an English chick that comes each year. I only wish we had more time to get to know her better. Oh well. Next year?
