Trendsetter Jamaica: As you can see from the current charts, Jamaica is at the center of modern pop music. In terms of rhythm, lyrics and melody, the island often provides the template for the greatest hits.

But in the metropolises, the sounds of the island have long since merged with local influences: the Summerjam Festival celebrates urban music – the right way. The unique lineup reflects international trends and brings some of the most successful artists exclusively to Germany.

As a result, the Summerjam Festival not only stands out from all reggae festivals, but also offers an exciting alternative for many music fans!
