Paradise Lost Jamaica – EDM Festival
In case you haven’t noticed EDM or Electronic Dance Music is slowly taking over the globe and where better to party than the tropical haven of Jamaica. Paradise Lost is a 3 day, 3 night, Spring Break EDM (electronic dance music) and Reggae Festival taking place in Ocho Rios, Jamaica from 10th to 12th March 2016. Organisers are hoping that patrons will be dazzled with the star line up including big name DJ’s, international Pop Stars and home-grown Jamaican Acts that are gracing the stage. There will be 3 stages offering acts on a scenic beach location, with on-site camping, a festival village full of vendors, water sports activities, excursions and more. All of this to contribute to an explosive and enjoyable Spring Break 2016!

International acts ‘Big Gigantic’, ‘Bassnectar’ and ‘Tiesto’ are headlining the event on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night respectively and will be offering up pulsating EDM Beats. Sean Paul and Busy Signal, both Jamaican Reggae / Dancehall artists, who had musical success with their EDM song releases, also make a much-anticipated appearance.

Paradise Lost Jamaica – The Location
Jamaica not only benefits from a tropical climate, the verdant island with its wealth of breathtaking natural beauty will feed all the senses as soon as you arrive. Paradise Lost Jamaica makes the most of the scenery by taking over ‘Grissly’s Plantation Grove’ in Richmond, St. Ann, some 20 minutes drive outside of Ocho Rios town centre. With a complete festival ‘village’ centered around private beaches you will have the opportunity to eat, sleep and breathe the atmosphere for 3 days. If you are camping on-site you get to enjoy the festival experience for 5 days, as patrons are welcome to arrive at the festival on the 9th March and can leave on the 13th March.

EDM Roots in Jamaican Dub Music
Although you wouldn’t immediately associate Jamaica with EDM Music, it isn’t as unfamiliar as you may initially believe. The early predecessor to EDM, Dub Music was originally started in Jamaica in 1966, some 50 years ago with Dub Step artists including, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Osbourne ‘King Tubby’ Ruddock and Errol Thompson dominating the music scene. Some of these early artists are still producing new material today and today EDM is all over the music scene.
