Ziggy Marley, OMI and more to star at Jamaica House 2017

GREATNESS: Ziggy Marley

THE POPULAR Jamaica House showcase which was a huge success in London during the 2012 Olympics, will return to the Greenwich peninsula, southeast London during the IAAF World Athletics Championships from August 5-13.

Jamaica House 2017 will be staged inside Indigo at The 02 and will encompass nine nights of entertainment, music, food and sports to commemorate Jamaica’s sprint king Usain Bolt’s last competitive races at the IAAF games.

This unique event will celebrate both the Jamaican way of life and the accomplishments of the nation’s people.

It is being produced by Robomagic on behalf of the Jamaican Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport in partnership with the Jamaica Tourist Board.

SHOWCASE

Jamaica House 2017 will once again showcase Jamaican artists old and new, as well as UK artistes of Jamaican descent, along with acts from far and wide influenced by Jamaican music. Performances from incredible talent such as Freddie McGregor, Ziggy Marley, Luciano, OMI, Nesbeth, Protoje, Krishane, Stylo G, The Skints, Nadia Rose, Yungen and Melissa Steel, to name a few, will be held across the nine days.

The IAAF World Championships will be shown live on the big screens at the event so fans will not miss out on the excitement of watching Usain Bolt’s final races.

The Jamaica House concerts have been created to provide visitors with the chance to catch the races live each evening during the event and grab mouth-watering traditional Jamaican food and drink including jerk chicken, patties from Port Royal Patties, tasty Appleton Rum cocktails and Red Stripe beer.

The motto for the Island of Jamaica is ‘Out of many, one people’ and this series of shows absolutely highlights the diversity and excitement of the island’s music scene.

Jamaica has traditionally punched above its weight in terms of influence and culture and these performances at Indigo at The O2 will illustrate just why the island’s musical heritage is still unrivalled.
