Thus, we have no choice but to postpone our staging of this event from August 5-9, 2020 to August 5-9, 2021,”.

The release further expressed that “While a few of you may be disappointed, through discussions directly with many of our Dreamers, we realize that most of you are still not comfortable at the thought of partying with thousands of your fellow patrons, with very little opportunity for social distancing,”.

As it relates to the COVID-19 cases in Jamaica there is a record of 621 positive cases and 10 deaths. Restrictions have been put in place inclusive of the wearing of masks in public places and gatherings.

With regards to the validity of the tickets purchased for the event, they will be valid for next year’s staging as there is a “no refund policy” however changes where names are concerned can be made as well as ticket transfers all free of cost for ticket holders.

Generating spendings of $4 billion in the economy, and attracting as many as 25,000 fans, the summer series have definitely been a stimulus to financial and tourism activities in Negril. It was first held in 2009.
