Red Stripe’s Dream Weekend will take place August 6-9, 2009 in Negril, Jamaica. This event is also know as Jamaica Indepence Weekend.
This year the event’s organizers have chosen to combine A.T.I. (Appleton Temptation Island) and R.T.I. (Red Stripe Temptation Island) into one massive event. This way visitors will not have to chose which concerts or events to attend.
Xtreme Wet N’ Wild
Twisted Spiritz Beer
Margarita Dayz + Jungle Nites
Tickets for all the events will cost: $150

The tentative dates for Black College Reunion (BCR) in Daytona Beach, FL will be March 11-14, 2010. These dates are considerably earlier than years past, so I would wait a while longer before booking hotels/reservations. I personally would like to see the dates moved to the second week in April. We will post more information as it becomes available.
