The pristine beach front 135 acres at Grizzly’s Plantation Cove will form the backdrop of Paradise Lost while offering camping and glamping in Tent City (which will be opened March 8-13, at $99 for 5 days for those who would like to bring their own tent, patrons will also have the option to rent 2-4 person tents for an additional fee.) The location was chosen because of the natural beauty of the land, but more significantly its rich cultural history. St. Ann is the birthplace of Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey, Burning Spear, and Shabba Ranks. It was there that Lee Scratch Perry discovered the Wailers (giving prominence to Marley and Peter Tosh). St. Ann is also the burial place of Marley – who was laid to rest there in his family’s mausoleum. Paradise Lost will be the ultimate EDM Festival in Jamaica – the unforgettable destination, featuring electrifying music, enriching Jamaican experiences hosted in a highly secured and friendly environment.
Well known DJs and local Jamaican radio hosts, duo “Alric and Boyd” said, “We have been waiting for this for over 20 years, finally the big stage is here. Jamaica and the Caribbean know who we are but on Thursday March 10 the world will know who we are as we prepare to head out on tour. Paradise Lost Music Festival is like a dream come true. We will leave it all on the stage. Electronic music in Jamaica is making its way back to the top and we played our role. We salute King Jammy’s this year for his role in inspiring the electronic sound we hear around the round the world today and will pay tribute. For people coming to Jamaica for the first time this experience is one of a life time. We love music and our sound is so unique, we come from sound system culture so our sound and bass are big and undeniable. We can’t wait as the excitement builds around the world.
