It would be difficult for a music festival to best the setting that Bankie Banx’s Moonsplash in Anguilla offers. I’ve been to many music festivals from one day affairs to three day marathons with backdrops ranging from corn fields to the Chicago skyline but none of them could offer the setting and atmosphere that Moonsplash still continues to avail to its customers 25 years on. Taking place at one of the world’s best beach bars on one...
