Grammy Award-Winning Maroon 5 to perform at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival 2011


The Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, the premier music event in the Caribbean, will celebrate its 15th anniversary from the 23rd – 29th January 2011, with concerts taking place along the north coast of the island in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.



The annual week long festival offers the best in Jazz, Blues, Reggae and R&B, including top line musical talent. This year will see the three-time Grammy Award Winning band Maroon 5 headline the festival at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium, as well as the chart topping artist Diana King and Laura Izibor, described as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s ‘Artists to Watch’.


John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism says: “This world famous festival has gone from strength to strength with 2011 being no exception, including performances from some of the best international music talent. The festival now runs for a full week and aside from the music, also gives visitors an opportunity to sample a diverse range of delicious Jamaican and international food, as well as coupled with the many sites and attractions the island has to offer.”


The festival was launched in 1996 by a conglomerate including the national airline Air Jamaica, the Jamaica Tourist Board and private sector partners, and has grown over the years to an impressive 25,000 patrons attending the event in 2010.


Tickets are available in three categories, Silver, Gold and Platinum, and can be purchased for individual nights, the weekend (Friday/Saturday) or the entire season. Tickets start from £51 for an individual night and from £110 for a weekend. For further information on the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival visit
