Jamaica gets its first EDM festival


While UMF & Tomorrowland are tapping up new markets across the world, Jamaica has finally managed to get its own EDM festival – Paradise Lost!

While the lineup and such has yet to be revealed, festival organizers Caribbean Trans Media limited and HMRA, NBBL INC. are planning out the details. Slated to take place from March 10-12, 2016 at Grizzly’s Plantation Cove in St.Ann, the festival is expected to bring in over 15,000 spring breakers to Jamaica and countless other job opportunities.

“Some Jamaicans don’t know that the genre started here, and some of the foreign markets don’t know either. This is going to educate them to learn about Jamaica and appreciate our music all over again. Who would think Bob Marley was one of the first EDM artistes? That is something we should think about.” – Jason Newman, a member of the organising team.

Stay tuned for more exciting news on the festival.
