Anguilla Events, Music & Nightlife

 
 

For a tiny island, Anguilla events are in no short supply!

Many regularly scheduled events and most nightlife revolve around terrific Anguilla music. The island is home to several talented musicians, each with a unique style and vibe. From musicians performing fast-beat soca, which is very popular in the Caribbean, to calypso and reggae, you are bound to find a group who suits your taste.

Bankie Banx is one of the island's most widely loved musicians. He owns the famous Dune Preserve beach bar and performs there weekly. He also hosts the big reggae festival Moonsplash each year.

Other musicians who you may regularly see at bars and restaurants here in Anguilla include Omari Banks (Bankie's son), AIM, 12th Avenue and Omalie 360. Anguilla has a growing DJ scene as well. Often found spinning at five-star resorts and local bars alike, Anguilla's DJs keep happy patrons dancing into the wee hours. DJ Sugar is one of Anguilla's most popular as well as up and coming DJ Kue.

You will see some of these artists and local bands like Exodus HD band perform at many of the big beach parties and local events, like Carnival.

So, by now you might be thinking, "Who will be playing while I'm in Anguilla and where can I catch them?"

Weekly Events

Before we moved to Anguilla, we always had a hard time keeping track of live music, and other unique attractions that happen on a daily basis. To keep things simple and easy, here is some of the best of what goes on in Anguilla day-by-day...

 

Sunday | Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday | Saturday

Special Note: In addition to the events listed below, the Four Seasons and the Malliouhana resort have weekly live music. Their schedules change weekly, however, so call ahead for their entertainment schedules.

 

Sunday

Sundays in Anguilla are more commonly known as Funday Sundays ;-)

There is something special in the air in Anguilla come Sunday. The atmosphere is one of total relaxation. Whether enjoying live music beach-side, snoozing in a lounge chair, dining on BBQ, or playing in the sea... Sundays are all about calm and fun.

Two of the best spots to spend a Sunday? The Dune & da'Vida!

Every Sunday, Bankie Banx's famous Dune Preserve, aka "The Dune", comes alive with local music. Bankie is known to encourage visiting musicians to take the stage, too, if they please.

Famous musicians turn up at the Dune from time to time, too. John Mayer showed up and performed at Moonsplash back in 2011. Lucky guests even had the chance to sit and listen to Bon Jovi's keyboardist, David Bryan, as he joined Bankie and company on the stage one year. This is just a tiny piece of what we love about Anguilla, you never know what the day has in store for you sometimes!

Wednesdays

One of our favorite Anguilla events on Wednesday nights? Wings at Ferry Boat Inn!

Wings & Juicy Burger!
Ferry Boat Inn Wings Night Anguilla

Wednesday Wings Night at The Ferryboat Inn is another great place where locals and tourists mingle.

The Ferryboat Inn, we all call it "FBI", sits on the beach in Blowing Point. FBI tailors their regular dinner menu on Wednesday night as they serve up generously-sized, delicious $1 wings (plain, mild, medium, or hot). The Wednesday night menu also includes a few other FBI favorites, including the best burger on the island.

It really is like a big, happy family at The Ferryboat Inn. Lots of smiles and laughs all around! Wings Night is the place to be on a Wednesday night if you are in the mood to have a laugh with Christian, eat as few or as many wings as you please, gaze out at the night lights of St. Martin, or hear the sea lapping the beach just at the restaurant's edge.

Wings Night is one of the most popular Anguilla events, especially in the high season. Make sure you get there early before the Wings fly away! ;-)
