PORT ROYAL, Jamaica – The official date for the third annual Port Royal Music Festival is November 7 – 9, 2008. The change of date from the usual month of August to November will enhance tourism in Jamaica for November, bringing more tourists to the island during this time. The planning and organizing for its third staging is well underway and this year’s event promises to exceed all expectations.
The festivities will begin with the Celebrity Party, followed by the Main Show and then Jazz on the Harbour. It is clear that this year’s event will capture “all the right elements of music, bringing a diverse line-up of activities” as Christopher Blythe explains Director of Paradise Communications. “As we develop a music festival in Kingston, Jamaica we plan to revive Port Royal and bring forth its once ritzy days, which will be envied by many, not only in Jamaica but the entire region as a festival of class and quality” he added. This years line-up will include genres from adult contemporary, pop, r&b, reggae and jazz just to name a few.
The 2007 staging of the Port Royal Music Festival saw acts like Regina Belle, Brian McKnight, Tarrus Riley and Maxi Priest. Boyz II Men and Atlantic Starr were the main acts for the inaugural staging of the festival in 2006. The performances from these artistes were highly received by both audiences. In anticipation of this year’s line-up we can only expect the best as the Port Royal Music Festival drops their anchor as the premier music festival in Kingston, Jamaica. Certainly, if its first and second staging generated such overwhelming responses, this year’s event will be nothing short of explosive.
One thing is assured, “Paradise Communications prides itself on consistently delivering a superior product of world class standards and will not disappoint” says Christopher Blythe Director of Paradise Communications.
