So you are planning a party? But don’t know the first thing you need to do?. Well let us try and help you.


Keeping a dancehall session/party in Jamaica can be a real headache. There are a few pieces of very important documents you must obtain before you can get an approval from the authorities.

These are:

Permission Letter from the Police In your area. For this you have to send them an application letter. See full details here

Payment to the Parish Council Fee – The Parish Council in your area charges a fee which is said is for the removal up of your garbage after your event.
Electricity – There is also a fee which is paid to the power company in order for them to provide current for your event.

JCAP License - What is JCAP you might asked. JACAP is a non profit copyright collecting society that collectively manages performing and recording rights in musical works.
Music users, if you use music for any commercial, promotional, or entertainment events, you will need a JACAP licence.
