WILLEMSTAD, Curaçao – Sting and Stevie Wonder will be headlining this year’s Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival.

“Our incredible line-up of iconic Grammy Award-winning artists, including Stevie Wonder and Sting, will be a huge draw for this year’s Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival,” Curaçao Tourist Board Marketing Manager North America André Rojer said in a news release. “Building on the success of last year’s festival, this year’s event is sure to heighten awareness of Curaçao as the hottest island in the Caribbean.”
