Sakifo - Event in Saint-Pierre

In June every summer, the Sakifo makes the island of Réunion swing for three days. This event, which is growing in popularity in the Indian Ocean area, is named after the Réunion Creole version of the French expression "ce qu'il faut" ("what you need"): a way of making sure that music fans have everything they could wish for!

Created in 2004, this eclectic music festival has been taking place in Saint-Pierre since 2016 and is arranged into six different stages. Jazz, pop, rock, electro, hip hop, reggae, French popular song and maloya (the local blues)... all styles are represented. In previous years, the festival has welcomed national and international stars like Keziah Jones, Cali, Tiken Jah Fakoly,   Lee "Scratch" Perry, Olivia Ruiz, Oxmo Puccino, Popa Chubby, Asian Dub Foundation, Joeystarr, Birdy Nam Nam and many more.

The aim of Sakifo is to promote closeness between artists and audience, and to bring together all the musical and cultural styles to cohabit harmoniously. A festive atmosphere takes over the town with entertainment alongside the concerts, in particular a "fringe" festival for amateur musicians organised by the Simangavol association. The selected artists will be able to take to the stage for a concert lasting one hour.
