Caribbean Song Festival

The Caribbean Song Festival is an annual song competition held among countries that are members of the Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU). It is the largest and highest rated song competition of the Caribbean. It is often referred to as the Eurovision Song Contest of the Caribbean, and sometimes mistakenly called the CBU Festival.

Each competing Island and country holds a National Song Festival where a winner is chosen. This is aired on live television at the National competition via one of the national CBU-member television stations. The National winner and song will then be submitted to the international competition. At the Caribbean Song Festival, the finalists represent their country.

The show has been broadcast on live television since it first premiered in 1984.
