It’s almost that time of the year again. The Largest Haitian Music Festival is back in Miami for its 17th year of music, food, parties, kompa and zouk.
The Haitian Compas Festival, the U.S.’s largest Haitian music festival, announces that it is taking the sounds of Compas back to Sun Life Stadium on Saturday, May 16, 2015. “Last year’s success made us really think about what the perfect venue would be for us, we took the time to listen to what the fans wanted and Sun Life Stadium won the majority vote,” said Rodney Noel, CEO of Noel & Cecibon Productions.
