Goldeneye - Island Outpost


A Little History . . .

Chris Blackwell founded the independent label Island Records back in 1959, and credited with bringing reggae music to the world outside Jamaica. 

Blackwell produced Bob Marley and the Wailers, British acts like Traffic, Bad Company, ELP, Free, Fairport Convention, King Crimson, and world music from the Irish traditionalists The Chieftains to Africans like King Sunny Ade. Island Records also brought independent artists to the forefront such as Roxy Music, Brian Eno, Sparks, Grace Jones, Marianne Faithfull, Tom Waits and Irish band U2.

Guests can opt for half day, full day, overnight and multi night experiences
