Jamaica Rum Festival


Top-shelf acts for rum festival

Capleton, Sanchez, Romain Virgo, and Tessanne Chin are part of the entertainment package at this year’s Jamaica Rum Festival (JRF) scheduled for The Aqueduct at Rose Hall in Montego Bay, St James, on June 25.

JRF, now in its fourth year, is presented by Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum in partnership with the Jamaica Tourist Board and the Tourism Enhancement Fund.

“We owe a big thanks to Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum, without whom this year’s entertainment package wouldn’t be possible. As Jamaicans, we know how seamlessly rum and reggae go together, and we’re looking forward to reminding audiences of this undeniable chemistry come June 25,” said Festival Director Valón Thorpe.

“Naturally, the Jamaica Rum Festival is a multi-tiered experience; not solely rum, not solely music. However, it’s important that we wrap this upcoming event the way only JRF knows how — with an entertainment package that will get the crowd rocking and leave them with a complete and unforgettable JRF experience,” he added.

Fast-rising artistes Sevana, Runkus, D’Burnz, D’Voyce and Kalyra are also slated to take the stage.

Marketing director, J Wray & Nephew Limited, Pietro Gramegna, says the 2022 line-up is guaranteed to deliver — and that patrons will not leave disappointed.

“Over the years, we have established a well-regarded reputation among JRF patrons. They know that the festival is a one-of-a-kind experience, made that much better by electrifying performances to conclude an already-exceptional event,” he said. “Our supporters can rest assured that this, our fourth staging of JRF will be no exception. We are excited to wow patrons and put on another unforgettable show.”

The upcoming festival will also include interactive seminars, demonstrations, entertaining activities, sampling, Jamaican cuisine and feature 45 artisans showcasing their rum-inspired art, food, and crafts.
