If you want to go, though, you'd best start saving those pennies now...

One thing Jamaica certainly doesn't have any shortage of is music festivals. There are loads of them, but unsurprisingly most are dedicated to various forms of reggae. As of next March, though, the Caribbean nation will have a house music festival of its own, in the form of Jamaica Frenzy.

Put together by a group of New York club promoters, Jamaica Frenzy promises a week of top-quality soulful house music in the resort town of Negril. It's an all-inclusive deal, with two contrasting choices of accommodation: the Royalton Spa & Resort ("family-friendly") or the world-famous Hedonism II ("clothing optional"). Either way the fun doesn't come cheap: a week-long ticket covering accommodation, all your food and drinks and transport to/from the various parties - but not flights - will set you back an eye-watering $1,899 (£1,440 approx).

If you're feeling flush, though, you might just decide it's worth it, what with a line-up that boasts Body & Soul (Danny Krivit, Joaquin Claussell & Francois K), The Ritual with Anané & Louie Vega, David Morales, Timmy Regisford, DJ Spen, DJ Spinna, Karizma, David Harness, Ultra Nate and many more. It's a soulful house lover's paradise, in suitably paradisial surroundings.

Jamaica Frenzy co-founder DJ Lil Ray said: "Jamaica Frenzy's vision is to create a clubbers' paradise by bringing some of best DJ talent we know to a luxurious resort in the exotic setting of Jamaica. We want to create a five-star, feel-good festival experience and Negril has it all - March can’t come soon enough!"
