The Color Festival
The Color Festival is the biggest event of its kind in the world! With roots in ancient India, the Color Festival is a joyful reminder to cast away negativity and worry. India’s Festival of Colors (Holi) announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of joy and love. People embrace each other in a spirit of reconciliation and forgiveness. This is the root of the Color Festival.
Now undeniably one of Jamaica’s largest events, the Color Festival will travel to the Caribbean islands of Cayman, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, Bahamas and St. Lucia in 2015, with even larger celebrations set for Jamaica. With hours of great music, an abundance of premium drinks and awesome colour throws, everyone accepts the Color Festival as one of the best events ever invented.
The Caribbean joins the throng of people worldwide, dressed in white, laughing, playing, dancing, eating, and filling the sky with clouds of bright color, all at the same time!
Superjam began in 1982 featuring the clash of the big uptown bands of the time; Third World and Chalice.

The Superjam line-up over the years is a virtual who’s who of Jamaican music and includes Dennis Brown, Steel Pulse, Black Uhuru, The Skatalites, Third World, Gregory Isaacs, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, Buju Banton, Damian Marley, Beenie Man, Beres Hammond, Busy Signal and Chronixx all at the top of their game.
