The part retreat, part festival event, to be held in Negril, Jamaica, will run from April 30 to May 5.

For House music fans, Tmrw.Today curated a group of global performers to ensure a steady flow of smooth beats. This includes the electronic legend Dubfire, who in addition to a house set will also be catering to the Tmrw.Today vibe with a Live Dub/Reggae Set.

Tmrw.Today has also teamed on a beach showcase with Love Cow, who is a sound and healing arts community born out of the Playa at Burning Man 2016. The showcase will feature Los Angeles DJ and festival favourite Sabo.

A second beach showcase will take place with leaders in the Toronto dance music scene Summerdaze. This will kick off their ninth summer of spreading love and feel good music and will feature one of the members of Barcelona duo Audiofly, known for launching the Flying Circus record label and events.

Along with the music-focused events, Tmrw.Today has established The Garden of Mary to give guests the chance to take part in plant medicine ceremonies, cannabis culture, and wellness vendors, all capped off with a keynote cannabis panel with leading advocates, doctors, and business owners.
