The Haitian Compas Festival is only days away from making history once again. For 17 years, Noel & Cecibon Productions has brought the hottest acts to the stage and this year is no exception as Sun Life Stadium will be packed with Haiti’s top bands. From Djakout #1, T-Vice, CaRiMi, Nu Look, Klass, Disip, Team Lobey, Konpech, K-Zino, Gabel, and Kreyol La music lovers are in for the time of their lives. Commemorating Haitian Flag Day during the observation of Haitian Cultural Heritage Month, the Haitian Compas Festival has brought tens of thousands of visitors, tourists and locals alike to South Florida for a weekend full of activities. A plethora of DJ’s like Gardy Girault, Tony Mix, Power Mixx, Nicky Mixx and the Untouchables will also move the massive crowds.
“The Haitian Compas Festival has become larger than just a festival, it is the time where people from around the world, from Europe to the Antilles and all throughout the United States take their vacation and make Miami their one stop for all their musical needs. Almost a week of events makes the Haitian Compas Festival a time-honored tradition. It’s the longest running event in the Haitian community and we love highlighting the best of Haiti, from its food to its art. The Haitian Compas Festival weekend has it all.” said Rodney Noel of Noel & Cecibon Productions.
