Reggae Sumfest, renowned for providing
exceptional entertainment for over three decades, has earned its place as the world’s largest
reggae music festival. This spectacular event not only delights music enthusiasts worldwide

Jamaica. The festival’s positive spin-off effects greatly benefit businesses, contributing to
the sustainable expansion of the local entertainment sector.

Minister Bartlett emphasizes the Ministry
of Tourism’s unwavering commitment to nurturing Jamaica’s tourism product. The partnership with
Reggae Sumfest through the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF)
exemplifies this dedication. Despite challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, both Jamaica’s
tourism sector and the festival have rebounded remarkably.
