NEGRIL, Westmoreland — Negril's forecast will substantially change during the Easter weekend as some of Negril's most renowned promoters have joined forces to create a party series dubbed 'Wett Weeknd,' set for April 20-22.

The inaugural staging consists of five premium events over the three-day period at five enchanting venues.

“It's not just another party series, but a lifestyle, every day in Negril is a bikini day, we are the capital of casual,” said Garold Hamilton, a member of the Wett Weeknd promotion team, adding that all events are water-related.

The events include 'Dirty Crushh: The All-white Pool Temptations at Oasis Resort; Island J'Ouvert at Cayenne Beach; Munch “The Premium Brunch” at Sov Resort; 100 Proof: “Xtremely Wett” at Wavs Beach, and Floats on the Beach, set for Island Lux.

One of the organisers explained that the event, which is expected to be an annual affair, is being staged mainly to fill the void left by the Great Escape Weekend party series, which had its last staging in 2017.

“A lot of persons have been coming to Negril over the Easter period and they want quality entertainment, so we are just satisfying that need, bearing in mind that there is no longer the Great Escape Weekend event during Easter,” he explained.

Wett Weeknd will provide some of the best in the entertainment industry, and will see a live performance by Jada Kingdom, while non-stop juggling and energetic party vibe for the weekend will be provided by Coppershot Sound, Illusion Sound, Kurt Riley, DJ Shunde from Trinidad and a host of other local top DJs.

Tickets for the much-anticipated event are now on sale for $14,500 (season pass) at, and at Blackgold Image Solutions in Savanna-la-Mar; Loud Fashion, MegaMart, 876 Terrace Bar & Grill (formerly Susie's Bakery) in Kingston; Genus Pharmacy in Portmore; TK Raffeine and BOOT Service Station in Ocho Rios; Mega Mart and David & Subs in Montego Bay; World of Sports in Negril and Sharkies Seafood Restaurant in Salem, St Ann.

Tickets for the drink inclusive party series can also be purchased for the daily events at the outlets, and at the gate.
