This year’s edition of the Jamaica Jazz & Blue’s Festival is going virtual.
The music event will be held from March 4-6, with an additional charity component that will help raise funds for industry professionals affected by the pandemic.
The event, which will be held under the theme “Bringing Back the Magic,” will focus on “sharing the rich music, culture and passion that Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival fans have become accustomed,” according to the Jamaica Tourist Board.
“We are pleased to welcome the return of the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival and laud the organizers on the charity element,” said Donovan White, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “In past years, the event has been a big draw for visitors looking to enjoy some quality entertainment in Jamaica. Although it will be virtual this year, we believe this event serves as a precursor to what we can expect in 2022, when music lovers will be able to join us again for an in-person experience.”
This year’s lineup includes Grammy winner Jon Secada, along with a number of Jamaican artists including Richie Stephens, Lila Iké, Tessellated, Jah9 and Mortimer.
