Crystal blue Caribbean waters, toes in the sand, country music and cold beer! Nope, you’re dreamin’… it’s the Love City Country Music Festival!
This one promises to be good. It starts off with a beach party over at the Soggy Dollar Bay on Jost Van Dyke on May 14th and continues with two days of country music on St. John. We don’t know too much about country music, but from what we hear, they’ve scored some pretty big name acts including Jerrod Neimann, Pat Green and Dallas Smith.
