Jamaican Music & Food festival - LOVE + UNITY
In November 2016, the Jamaican Music & Food Festival family gathered like-minded Jamaican music and food fans together to experience one glorious day of reggae, dub, rocksteady and dancehall music in the Australian sunshine.
Soundtracked by some of the very best DJs, artists and live music the country has to offer, since then the Jamaican Music & Food Festival has become a benchmark for the best performances inspired by and straight out of Jamaica.
The Jamaican Music & Food Festival day is one where people who know and recognise great music come together with unity and a good lick of rum. With over thirty food and other traders and 10,000 visitors in 2017, this year can only hold more great entertainment and party vibes.
We hope you will join us for another magical afternoon in the unique surrounds of Seaworks, Williamstown.

The Jamaican Music & Food Festival in 2017 was a family affair; all generations and their favourite DJs came together as one and stayed to catch Marvin Priest, Bushman and loads of home grown talent.
In 2018 we invite you to show your colours and take the feeling of pride home with you, as we present another incredible line up of the very best music of Jamaican origin, across four stages.
As before, there will a huge selection of the most mouth watering favourites to choose from, from authentic Jerk Chicken grilled on smoking hot barrels, to juicy Patties, to Ital Vegan and Vegetarian street food.
We have a huge collection of stallholders selling everything in sought after black-style including hair and beauty products, fashion, jewellery and merchandise. Plus JMFF bars serve ice cold Red Stripe and a selection of spirits and rum punch all day.
