Dark Star Orchestra have officially announced the latest Jam in the Sand, which will bring the premiere Dead tribute ensemble to Jamaica once again in 2025. For its twelfth annual tropical excursion, the band will welcome its tight-knit fan community to join them by the seaside from January 14-18 for a weekend of top-tier jams, anchored by a total of eight Dark Star sets.

DSO’s return to Jewel Paradise Cove in Runaway Bay will feature support from a stacked bill of featured artists. Scene favorites Melvin Seals and JGB with special guest Jennifer Hartswick will offer two shows through the course of the weekend, as well as a welcome set for early arrivals on the night of Jan. 13. Anders Osborne and Jackie Greene with their band will also get in on the fun, adding two further shows and a final post-series set on Jan. 18.

Offstage, fans can expect an elevated all-inclusive experience, complete with incomparable ocean views, gourmet restaurants on campus and a litany of exciting daily activities. Fans who attended Jam in the Sand 2024 can access tickets tomorrow, June 26 at 10 a.m. ET; other returning JITS visitors can secure tickets at 10 a.m. ET on June 27. Remaining stock will be opened to a general on-sale this Friday, June 28 at 10 a.m. ET.
