Thanks for making magic at TmrwTday

Thanks for making magic at TmrwTday

By Nikki Majewski

When individuals from all walks of life consciously unite, it’s magic. 

Earthly values enveloped the inaugural TmrwTday culture fest held along Negril’s famed 7 Mile Beach. Its humble crowd radiated joy, fuelling an energy that gave the event its ethereal vibe. 

To have executed an event and sellout concert of such proportion in its first year is a huge success in its own right. A success that powered through even during the dreariest of moments.

Torrential rain warnings associated with a trough that lingered over the Caribbean island threatened to halt the culture fest in its opening days - yet some combination of strategy, positive thought, community spirit and sun dancing saw TmrwTday thrive nonetheless.

No amount of grey or wet could dampen the herby love and laughter that permeated TmrwTday’s vibe.
