Jamaica’s Big Beach Party
Each July, thousands of reggae, dancehall and Jamaica lovers flock to Montego Bay for one of the biggest reggae music festivals in the world, Reggae Sumfest. Sumfest, as it’s affectionately called, is a week-long festival that features a beach party, sound clash (artists compete or “battle” for the crowd’s votes for best lyrics and performance) and three nights of amazing concerts.
For those who aren’t diehard reggae fans, note that Sumfest isn’t just about the music. It’s an opportunity to connect with people from all over the world, soak up the irie vibes and chow down on some delicious Jamaican food. Jerk chicken anyone?
