Theme: Enhanced States of Consciousness

Thu Nov 9 - Sun Nov 12, 2017



A-Fest West 2017 will take place in Jamaica, Thursday, November 9 until Sunday, November 12 at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in gorgeous Montego Bay.

Jamaica is one of the hottest holiday destinations in the Caribbean, boasting a lush topography of mountains, rainforests and reef-lined beaches, and Montego Bay, where A-Fest will will take place, are two words that have become synonymous with Caribbean paradise.

If you’re seduced by bright blue skies, ice-white beaches, and miles of colourful coral reefs, you’re in the right place.

And not only does Mo’ Bay, as it’s known, have the beautiful beaches with crystal-clear waters, it’s a place bubbling with life, night and day. Its downtown, fanning out from the cobblestone Sam Sharpe Square, is worth exploring with the pattie shops, vendors and historic landmarks like Gully Market all being part of the appeal.

We invite you to spend four unforgettable days (November 9-12) in Jamaica with our a global tribe of 350+ changemakers, leaders, cultural creatives and passionate entrepreneurs who are excited about creating big changes in their lives.
Join us and learn, grow and bond, and boogie under the Jamaican sun with some of the most brilliant people on the planet...
