First we have the Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW) starting this weekend, Saturday June 6 and ending on Monday June 15th. Kingston will be full of sexy, beautiful models adorning the hottest fashion trends that will make your head spin. Let your body move to the easy sounds of Billy Ocean and many more artists! This week will be pack-filled with events including items from vendors, workshops, galas and many more things for you to see! Check out their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/PulseFashionJA for some pretty cool pictures!
Next you can experience the worldwide synergy of love for reggae music on July 1, aka, International Reggae Day Festival. This event also takes place in the capital city of Kingston. See what impact Jamaica and her music has had on the world. This is a 24 hour media event with a live stream on Twitter. Visit the website at http://ireggaeday.com/. We’ll be there…will you?
Then you can catch a number of Jamaican and other artists across the globe during daily concerts the week of July 12-18. This live event will go down in Montego Bay. Catch the melodic sounds of “The Voice” champion Tessanne Chin, the conscientious lyrics of Chronixx and Jah Cure, the hip hop beats and hot rhymes from Wiz Khalifa and R&B swag of Jason Derulo. Plus, July 16 will be a night dedicated to Dancehall featuring various artists including Beenie Man. For more information about this event go to http://www.reggaesumfest.com.
Lastly, The National Dance Theatre Company in Jamaica will be celebrating its 53rd anniversary this year. While you may enjoy music, an outdoor concert may not be your cup of tea or maybe you enjoy professional dancing in a theatrical atmosphere. Either way, you are sure to love the performances put on by The National Dance Theatre Company. Located in Kingston, these nightly performances will kick off on Friday July 24th and end on August 16th. We encourage you to book a trip with us to witness these artistic creations. For more specific details go to the company’s website at www.ndtcjamaica.org.
As you can see, Jamaica’s summer air is filled with music. Music beats in the hearts and souls of Jamaicans. Keep checking our “Things to do in Jamaica” section for updates. We’ll be adding Independence Day events (the first week in August) later on this week!
We’ll see you soon!
