This edited volume contains the selected proceedings of the 15th International Small Island Cultures (ISIC) 2018 Conference jointly organized by The Institute of Caribbean Studies (University of the West Indies), the Small Island Cultures Research Initiative (SICRI) and the Sydney Institute of Music and Sound Research. The resulting anthology focuses on island music and art festivals and engages scholars from different disciplinary fields to share their research and experiences. While the focus is on island festivals, this volume also aims at promoting a critical research agenda for island studies in general.
