Guyana’s biggest summer event, Jamzone Summer Break 2013, has been set for 16th to 25th August 2013.

Being in its thirteenth year, Jamzone has grown from a simple one-day beach event to a ten-day affair with events ranging from the fanciest of Jazz Festivals to the biggest international concerts to the most attractive of sporting events.

From the time of Jamzone’s introduction in 2001 to the present, this event underwent several evolutionary stages but none was more significant than the facelift it received in 2009 when history was made in the local entertainment industry. Three consecutive days of Super Concerts were hosted at the Guyana National Stadium where the Caribbean’s most prolific artistes performed. Guyana partied non-stop for three full days!

As the years rolled on, International acts were added to the roster of activities, the first being R&B Singer/Songwriter Neyo! With this achievement, Hits and Jams never failed to fall from this dimension and has since brought to Guyana R&B Singer/Songwriter Trey Songz, Rapper/Songwriter Eve and Hip Hop Recording Artist Rick Ross.

This year we’re shooting further! We will maintain ten days of activities but the excitement will be intensified with new additions. Our string of events includes the now annual Jazz Night and Fashion Show, Kids Zone, the Miss Jamzone International Pageant, the Regional Night Concert and International Night Concert. Among initiatives added to this year’s schedule are a magnificent Ski Show, a Biker’s Fest event, Food/Local Night and a Football match between two big local teams.

Those who are anxious for our headlining acts to be revealed will have to wait a while longer as the Hits and Jams team is not quite ready to let the cat out the bag. However, it must be noted that the main act for this year’s International Night has been secured! As usual, patrons can look forward to a top class artiste who has stormed the music scene.

As it relates to the Regional Night Concert, partygoers can anticipate outstanding singers and musicians who are sure to bring that Caribbean flare to the table. With several acts booked for this event, it will be an evening of Soca, Dancehall, Reggae and Chutney sure to keep fans gyrating all through the night.

Jamzone Summer Break is an annual entertainment festival which is held in Guyana during the month of August. It has been accredited by the Ministry of Tourism as an annual calendar festival in Guyana which serves to provide both domestic and international tourists with wholesome entertainment during the local August holiday known internationally as the ‘Summer’ vacation.
