THE UKS NO1 REGGAE AND DUB CAMPING FESTIVAL
Throughout the last 9yrs we had some amazing ONE LOVE FESTIVAL Highlights and they keep on getting better and better. The festival means such a lot to so many people in such different ways – everyone leaves the event experiencing their own exceptional ONE LOVE FESTIVAL moment and memory. We have established a wonderful growing customer base of Fun, Loving, Happy and loyal Fans from all over Europe and beyond.
The event we have nurtured promotes the peaceful message of the music championed by Bob Marley and was created in honor of his famous 1978 One Love concert. We have gained a loyal UK fan base and interest from all over the world. Paying homage to our philosophy of “One Love” and to the foundation of Reggae Music. Each year always Booking the Pioneers of the scene playing Conscience Roots, Dub Music and enjoying all its sub genres.
The ONE LOVE FESTIVAL is a melting pot, a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, free trade and environmentally-friendly event, buzzing with creativity, fun, ideas and soul. One of the most diverse and unique festivals in the UK, the ONE LOVE FESTIVAL offers something for everyone and is an experience that should not be missed. Bringing together all the facilities and allures of a large-scale event but with the personal touch of a small, independent occasion. When you experience ONE LOVE it is something not to be forgotten.
One Love Festival’s inception in 2008 marked the 30th anniversary of Reggae legend Bob Marley’s concert of the same name. The famous concert was held in Kingston, Jamaica during a political civil war between opposing parties; Jamaican Labour Party and the People’s National Party. The concert came to its peak when Marley joined the hands of political rivals, Michael Manley (PNP) and Edward Seaga (JLP).
The One Love Festival's popularity increases each year, and brings together some of the industry’s greatest veterans, alongside the rising stars of tomorrow. Being the only reggae camping festival in the UK makes it a special occasion with a friendly and chilled vibe. For those who love the Caribbean sound, this is your chance to experience the taste too with a huge range of catering outlets providing authentic food. Also expect an array of independent stall holders selling crafts, clothing, cultural items and most importantly records, so you can take some of the music home.
