Several big names are slated to hit stage at the Aqueduct, Rose Hall in Montego Bay, St James on June 25 during the Jamaica Rum Festival (JRF), presented by Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum in partnership with the Jamaica Tourist Board and the Tourism Enhancement Fund.
Among the seasoned acts and new generation of talents revealed in the line-up for the 2022 live concert, are headliners Capleton, Sanchez, Romain Virgo, and Tessanne Chin, as well as fast-rising artistes Sevana, Runkus, dBurnz D’Voyce and Kalyra.
“We owe a big thanks to Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum, without whom this year’s entertainment package wouldn’t be possible, said Valón Thorpe, festival director.
“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.
“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.”
Pietro Gramegna, marketing director, J. Wray & Nephew Limited, says the 2022 lineup 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.
