britjam-fc.jpgThe highly anticipated Britjam Music Spring Break Festival, held annually in Montego Bay, St James is set to go on a one-year hiatus for 2018.

According to a press release from Good Good Production's CEO Evan "Zum" Powell, the annual week-long party series, will not be staged this year for health reasons.

In a press release, it was stated that Powell is still recovering from injuries he sustained after he was shot last summer. As a result, the work to be done for 2018 staging cannot be executed.

The release also quoted Zum saying: "Britjam is a very hands-on project for me and because of my recovery I have not been able to be up and down as needed. I believe if something can't be done properly then it's better to pause until it can."

Zum was injured in a gun attack along the Salt Marsh main road last July. Good Good Productions is known for the production of a number of popular dancehall rhythms, including Freezing Point, Triple X, Brit Jam, Cool Out, Happy Tyme, Liquor and the most recently released Cure Pain Riddim.
