Since the end of last summer, the collective music community has been looking forward to this time of year – festival announcements drop, tickets go on sale, travel arrangements are made, group texts are created for planning, and the excitement grows with each passing day. It’s festival season, baby!
As we’ve come to see, more and more interesting event locations have popped up throughout the years. From cruises to remote locations, it seems like promoters are always looking for new ways to take the entire experience to the next level. Since a good population of millennials are opting for these events in lieu of traditional vacations, why not combine the two? That’s exactly what we have here with Paradise Lost.
This is a dream come true, we love electronic music, it is a part of us. I plan to drop the bass so hard Cuba will feel it. This is my shot we finally have a festival at home and we need it. I think I can speak for all the DJs in Jamaica. We are ready to take on the world and Paradise Lost will be our foundation. This is our event, our country and I will make Jamaica proud on Thursday, March 10 – Fyah Starter
Taking place in one of the most visited islands in the Carribean, this experience promises the best of both worlds. First, let’s talk about the lineup, which boasts a well-crafted mixture of reggae, hip-hop, and dance music. Each day has an interesting mix, ranging from legendary acts like Tiesto, Sean Paul, and Bassnectar, all the way down to up-and-coming TMN favorites like Bit Funk, as well as a strong selection of locals.
Aside from a warm, sandy beach, and some top-tier, all-day talent, the festival is also encouraging guests to check out more of what Jamaica has to offer. They’ve actually teamed up with the tourist board to curate an extremely memorable Spring Break/Festival experience. One quick look through their website highlights a bevy of excursions, from visiting legendary waterfalls, to taking a swim with the dolphins.
If you’re interested in heading out to the pristine beachfront acres at Grizzly’s Plantation Cove, we highly recommend picking up tickets ASAP. You can do so by clicking here. If you’re not quite convinced just yet, we’ve put together a playlist with most of the performing artists, starting with some light and groovy reggae, and ending with some devastating, hip-shaking trap.
