Yes! And events and activities will be all around the country.
According to the JIS, this year will focus on continued efforts to develop and promote the cultural and creative industries towards greater income generation.
The minister of culture promises six days of excitement and wholesome family entertainment from August 1 to August 6, as the country celebrates Emancipation and Independence.
Among the activities outlined were:
- ‘Live Music Tuesdays’ in every parish;
- ‘Independence Conversations’;
- A National Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, July 27;
- Island-wide Emancipation vigils;
- Emancipation Jubilee; Mello-Go-Roun; and
- the Grand Gala.
New to this year’s celebrations will be a Heart of Ska International Festival; Aunty Roachie Short Film and Literary Festival; Dutchie Food Festival; and the Big Stage: Pop and Variety Competition.
The Ministry of Youth and Culture is encouraging all Jamaicans to participate in the celebrations that will be taking place across the island.
Also, a major highlight of the 2015 Festival activities is the ‘Link Up and Labrish’ discussion forum that will be held at the Independence Village, Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre, 36 Hope Road, Kingston 10, from August 1-5, 2015.
