GT TAYLOR'S CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA
Dubbed ‘the ultimate Christmas Night Show’, this long running stage show takes reggae music to Jamaica's south coast. Last year’s staging was the 15th edition. Hosted by a well known radio presenter, GT Taylor, the quality of the artist line up, from veteran artists to newcomers, is guaranteed year after year. And so are the vibes. This is the family oriented alternative to Sting. Part of the earnings go to local charities.
The show takes place on Christmas day, december 25. You don't have to wait until after midnight to arrive at this stage show. Gates are open at 6 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m.
The venue is Luana Sports Complex in Black River, the capital of the parish of St. Elizabeth.
There is always a stellar line-up but it has not been communicated yet for this year's edition.
Besides promoting reggae music one of GT Taylor’s other purposes with the festival is the touristic promotion of the south coast region of Jamaica. The parish of St. Elizabeth offers a tourism experience that is the exact opposite of the all-inclusive ready made kind of tourism of resort towns Negril and Mobay. The parish boasts a lot of smaller, intimate guesthouses and to stay there is truly a unique experience.
