smooth beats at sumfest 2012

July 23rd, 2012

Everyone’s abuzz about last week’s Sumfest, Jamaica’s number one music festival whose lineup of star reggae artists has earned it the lofty title of “Greatest Reggae Show on Earth.” The weeklong event, whose musical talent included big names like John Holt, Shabba Ranks, Trey Songz, and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, takes place every July in Montego Bay.

Thursday was “Dancehall Night,” an opening concert that got everyone jumping with hot, new Jamaican talent like Popcaan, Tommy Lee, and Kiprich. Reggae legend Shabba Ranks gave a moving performance the following night, her first concert in Jamaica in over a decade. Joining the cadre of cool were old-school pros like John Holt, Leroy Sibbles, Yellowman, and U Roy, who commemorated Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of independence with smooth island beats that made concert-goers never want to leave.

Sound like a good time? We envision the ultimate Jamaica vacation in the making… Next year, the event will take place July 14-21. Book a stay at The Caves, an Island Outpost property located near the westernmost point of Jamaica whose ten acres of lush scenery boast thirteen cliff-side accommodations with panoramic views of cobalt ocean. Featuring an open-air Aveda Concept Spa and a rum and cigar bar set in a grotto, The Caves is ready to turn Sumfest into the perfect summer break. Mark your calendars!
