The Reggae Sumfest Manual

The Greatest Reggae Show on Earth will take centre stage in Jamaica between July 21 and July 27 in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay.

The Reggae music festival will be staging it’s 21st event this year and the line-up for the three nights -dancehall night, international night 1 and international night 2 – is phenomenal.

 However, although the main events (which are the three themed nights) will end the music festival there will be parties in between, and a beach party will kick off the week of activities.

Despite the festival being known as the “greatest reggae show on Earth” the festival organizers aim to live up to their motto – “Promoting Music, the Universal Force” and as such offer all genres of music at the event. Hence the three nights of unfiltered good music and undiluted fun.

Tickets:

Tickets are available online and at ticket outlets across the island. (Please use the exchange rate as: JMD $1 = USD$ 100)

The ticket outlets are:

University students are also offered a 20% discount on all tickets (however, they are restricted to purchasing 2)

What to wear?

Since the internationally recognized colours for Reggae music are: RED, GREEN and GOLD, then many people will be in those colours. 

Ladies, remember it’s summer so those cute rompers, dresses, sheer tops and short shorts are acceptable. Men, no need to “dress to the nines”.. a simple graphic tee, jeans and comfortable shoes will do.

It will be hot and you will have to stand all night (unless you’re in VIP or carry your own chair), so ensure you wear comfortable shoes !

Where is Catherine Hall?

Catherine Hall is in Montego Bay (in the parish of St. James). Once you enter Montego Bay there will be signs and banners all over the place, we ensure you won’t get lost.

Where will I stay?
