The event, conceptualised by radio personality Markland Edwards, was first staged in 2013 to fill a demand for a family-oriented Christian event on the local entertainment calendar. The Credit Unions of Jamaica Gosplash 2015: Double Praise will feature two gospel concerts on one family fun day.

The one-day affair will feature performances from Papa San, DJ Nicholas, Ryan Mark, Omari, Chozenn, Katalyst Crew, Jodian Pantry, Dawn Martin and Bishop Everton Thomas. Part proceeds of the event will be donated to the Braeton Primary and Junior High School's computer lab.

Advocacy and communications manager at CUJ, Claudette Christie, said among other factors, the help being given to the school is what encouraged CUJ to support the event in a much bigger way.

Gosplash 2015 has also attracted a like-minded programme aimed at reaching the youth with wholesome gospel music. Danny Brownie, CEO of Main Street Music and the Jesus Party Movement, said he felt it would be a good synergy to have the movement on show at the festival since they had already planned to have a similar event on August 1. The movement began back in 2004 but lost momentum. However, it will be revived as part of Gosplash.

Other sponsors include RJR Communications Group, Nationwide News Network, Pepsi, Flow and Singer.
