Aruba gets Ready for Music Festival

This October Aruba`s picture-perfect Caribbean splendor will serve as the backdrop for two legendary American rock bands at the Second Annual Aruba Music Festival. This classic rock celebration is heating up the island “where happiness lives” by welcoming music powerhouses Crosby, Stills & Nash and Chicago to the stage on Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11 (respectively) at the Aruba Entertainment Center.

The Aruba Music Festival boasts two spectacular, star-studded days of sun, fun and the finest in musical entertainment. The international festival, now in its second year, has brought renowned Pop, Rock & Roll and Latin musicians together on stage to perform for locals and visitors alike and this year`s line-up is sure to be the spectacle of the year. With talent like rock and roll hall-of-famers Crosby, Stills & Nash and the Grammy-winning sounds of Chicago, the festival is guaranteed to be a tropical triumph.

Crosby, Stills & Nash is a legendary rock band that for over three decades has been delighting fans of all ages with their incredible vocal harmonies and varied style.  The group has been the recipient of numerous accolades including a Grammy and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Some of their classic hits include “Marrakesh Express,” “Guinnevere,” and “Wooden Ships.” The Aruba performance will treat concert goers to songs from throughout their career.

The hit-making band Chicago has sustained a loyal following for over three decades pumping out such chart-toppers as “25, or 6 to 4,” “You’re The Inspiration” and “Hard Habit To Break.”  Scoring nearly 50 Top 100 pop chart hits over the 30-year span from the release of their first album and with a Grammy under their belt, Chicago now brings their power ballads to the stage in Aruba for a night of unforgettable musical magic.

General admission tickets are US$35 for each night and a limited number of $50 VIP tickets are still available.  For ticket information or to learn more about the Aruba Music Festival please visit
