Many Caribbean islands are set to see a fall in revenue from entertainment tourism as several festivals across the region have been cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The coronavirus pandemic has sparked a ban on large gatherings as well as airline and cruise travel, and the cancellation or postponement of the region's spring/summer music festival season.

Caribbean islands utilize music festivals to attract visitors to their shores, especially during the slower spring and summer months.

The St. Kitts Music Festival which has been rescheduled for June 23-27 next year, while The Saint Lucia Jazz Festival scheduled for May 7-9 has been cancelled.

The Tobago Jazz Experience has also been called off.

Jamaica's hugely popular Reggae Sumfest scheduled for July 12-18 in Montego Bay is still on as the organizers continue to monitor the spread of the virus in the country.

Jamaica's Groundbreaking Reggae Sunsplash Festival is set to return after a 14 year break November 6-8 at Grizzly's Plantation Cove, St. Ann.

Also halted for the next few months are the many carnivals held throughout the Caribbean and the U.S., which provide a lucrative circuit for in-demand soca talents from Trinidad and Tobago and other Caribbean islands.

The Tmrw.Tday Culture Fest, originally scheduled for April 28-May 3 in Negril has also been put off.
