As famous for its legendary parties as its world-class racing, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta has today announced its musical headline act for Friday March 1, 2019 The Caribbean Queen, Alison Hinds.

St. Maarten Heineken Regatta Production Director, John Leone, comments, 'Over the past 38 years we have been, and always will be, committed to creating an environment for Serious Sailing, and Serious Fun at our regatta, this year is no different. We are thrilled to get the party started by announcing Alison Hinds as our feature act to perform on Friday, March 1, 2019. She truly is a Queen of the Caribbean and we're overjoyed to have her back on board for the famous St. Maarten Heineken Regatta parties. Sailors can make land and party into the night enjoying live music performed by top acts. Stay tuned for more artist announcements!'

Now in its 39th year, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta has become a must see annual event in the global sailing calendar, set against the dazzling backdrop of the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean. The fun continues on land and well into the night, with the famous "Heineken" parties lighting up St. Maarten's Regatta Village at the Port de Plaisance Resort, Casino and Yacht Club over each of the four nights of the regatta.

Taking to the stage for the 39th St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, Alison Hinds also known as a Queen of SOCA will bring a flavour of the Caribbean to regatta competitors and spectators. Alison released her first album 'Soca Queen' in 2007 and is famous for collaborations with Richie Spice and Shaggy such as "King and Queen" and "Can't Let My Love Go", and for her global smash hit single "Roll It Gal". This will be Alison's second time performing for the event and she was invited back due of the demand from her fan base.

Alison's powerful, emotional vocals and high-energy live shows are legendary in Caribbean music. Her message of love and upliftment for one and all and a mixture of high energy and soulful ballads has cemented her popularity in the hearts of audiences worldwide. Alison is a major force in the eruption of innovative urban-influenced Caribbean-based music, alongside artists such as fellow-Bajan popstar Rihanna, Sean Paul, and Shaggy, who are changing the face of music worldwide.

With more than 80 entries already confirmed so far, the event is sure to be a legendary experience. Find out more about the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, St. Maarten and island life at www.heinekenregatta.com.
