Saturday May 16, 2015 was the 17th annual Haitian Compas Festival takeover of Sun Life Stadium, when Haitians pump the brakes on normal life to celebrate Haitian Flag Day and Haitian Heritage month.
Although fourteen bands were scheduled to perform for the night, fans only had the chance to enjoy seven performances from bands like Carimi, T-Vice, Djakout #1, System Band, Disip, Kreyol La, and Klass.
