Prismatic and airy outdoor venues, which ranged from the beach to cavernous rooms carved into limestone cliffs, vibrated with rhythm of international music acts and native talent alike. The inaugural Tmrw.Tday festival welcomed Protoje & The Indiggnation, a surprise performance by the legendary Lee Scratch Perry, Teflon Zinc Fence & Yaadcore and the entire Crew Love squad touched down for an epic Sunday Irie Soul Beach takeover featuring extended sets from David Marston, Nick Monaco, and Wolf + Lamb. The magical weekend reached peak vibes Sunday night with Chris Blackwell hosting a very special edition of the Dub Cave with Gabre Selassie at the Caves, his stunning hotel in Negril.

Vice Noisy: This Is What Fyre Festival Could Have Been If It Wasn’t Such a Disaster

12.09.2017

By: Ryan Bassil – Vice Noisy, U.K

Tmrw.Tday is a new festival in Jamaica, but with more focus on the vibes.

Fyre Festival and its tale of myriad problems has been recounted so often it’s practically already folklore. To briefly recap: the “once-in-a-lifetime” April 2017 event spectacularly collapsed as airlines grounded and cancelled flights, headline acts pulled out and luxury necessities resembled little more than emergency relief supplies. A dazzling shitshow of our time.

In retrospect, Fyre Festival was doomed to collapse head over arse into the balmy waters of the Exumas. But what if it went ahead? A new festival called Tmrw.Tday, taking place in Jamaica a few weeks later, lightly mirrors what Ja Rule and his 25-year-old business partner could have achieved if their shit had been together. At least that’s how it comes across in the festival’s marketing, anyway.

By Patricia Meschino – Billboard Magazine 

On a balmy late May evening under the stars at Chris Blackwell’s stunning cliffside hotel The Caves in Negril, Jamaica, legendary producer Lee “Scratch” Perry strolls up to the DJ booth and takes the microphone.

For the next 45 minutes Scratch, now 81, his hair and beard dyed cherry-red, freestyles lyrics as DJ (or selector, in Jamaican parlance). Kingston Dub Club owner Gabre Selassie tweaks his mixing console’s controls, manipulating the riddim track, transforming the bass line into a recurring thunderous boom.

Forbes: A Tale Of Two Festivals. Success at Tmrw.Tday and Ongoing Angst at Exuma’s Fyre

12.09.2017
2-1200x800

By: Brad Auerbach – Forbes Magazine

Two recent inaugural island festivals are a study in how to organize a successful gathering. The Tmrw.Tday festival in Jamaica’s Negril was a resounding success. A few weeks earlier, the Fyre festival in the Bahamas has left a wake of lawsuits.

Between the two festivals I spoke with Tmrw.Tday’s organizer Andrew Christoforou. I asked him the inevitable question, what about the blowback from the Fyre debacle in the Bahamas?

Guests and partners have been sending articles, and with our partners in the festival and concert business, some alarm bells have been raised. But our sales have not been not affected. In fact, the reports have galvanized us to review with a fine tooth comb all elements of security and logistics, all management meetings, bar services, regulations, client safety and protocol. On balance, it is a good thing, it brought us to take a harder look on everything.

Today more than 8 million tons of plastic enter our oceans each year.

David Marston

By Andrea Delgado

David Marston is a producer, DJ, musician, and guitarist hailing from the vibrant Caribbean island of Jamaica. His approach to music is multifaceted: in his own productions, David works to achieve a sound that is a fusion of various genres, including house, soul, disco, jazz, as well as reggae and dub.

I sat down with David to learn more about his journey through music.

Tell us about your musical journey?
For as long as I can remember, music has resonated with me. I think this connection is true of most people. I started playing guitar when I was about 11 years old. The guitar was quite formative in my exploration of the world of music. To a great extent, my playing guitar has shaped how I process music, and it has also influenced my musical tastes and preferences…
