Dreams sometimes do come true, and that's the message from the Appleton Special Dream Weekend team as they offer an amazing one-day early bird sale in Jamaica this Saturday.

Priced at only $20,000, which for the value hunters works out to only $2,000 per event for 10 amazing all-inclusive events, the sale is just what patrons may require to make their dreams a reality. The sale, which will be limited to two season passes only per person, will be on offer at Ribbiz Kingston, Pier 1 Montego Bay, Kool Runnings Negril, Heaven's Texaco Mandeville and Reggae Yaad in Island Village Ocho Rios.

Kicking off with the announcement of new title sponsors Appleton Special Jamaica Rum, the introduction of new events to an already stellar line-up, and continuing to deliver great value through the attractive pricing of season bands, 2015 is already shaping up to be the most epic staging of Appleton Special Dream Weekend yet. Eager partygoers or 'Dreamers', as they are more often referred to, will descend on Negril from August 5-9 from not only Jamaica, but from as far as China, the UK, the United States, Dubai and Canada.


Marketing director for Dream Entertainment, organisers of the five-day festival, Ron Burke, indicated that the sale is their way of continuing to reward loyal patrons by delivering excellent value for money. He also went on to outline some of the new additions to the line-up.

"This year, as we do every year, we brainstorm new ideas, initiatives and events to satisfy our loyal patrons. This year being no different, we have introduced our Insomnia Beach event, which will kick off at 2 a.m.; World Vibes, which will feature sound systems from across the world; and Celebrity Playground - the red-and-white-themed event which will feature notable local and international celebrities. We want all our guests to come out and have a good time, and we continue to encourage patrons to drink and act responsibly."

The full line-up for the weekend kicks off on Wednesday, August 5 with the Dream Live Concert featuring top-billed dancehall and reggae artists, followed on August 6 by Insomnia Beach, Celebrity Playground, and Twisted Spiritz. Friday, August 7, will start off with the all-white event, Daydreams, and close with the '90s hit event, Yush. Saturday hosts the popular Xtreme Wet and Wild event at the water park, World Vibes, Igloo - the global cooler party, and the Dream J'Ouvert.
