Those lucky enough to snag VIP tickets can also soak up the warmth of the Caribbean. In addition to the festival’s many activities, the Rum Zone has quickly become a fan favourite, where festival goers can discover the rich, subtle flavours of Caribbean rums. With VIP tickets, you’ll also have exclusive access to the VIP Lounge, where drinks and tapas are served on a comfortable patio. This year, the Rum Zone and VIP Lounge will be located on a SKYDECK, an elevated structure that will certainly heighten your experience!
