The UK’s NO1 Reggae / Dub Festival

One Love Festival

We are very excited to announce - The eighth annual One Love Festival the UK's only annual reggae camping event which is happening a month later next year, from Friday 4th until Sunday 6th September 2015, will now take place on a brand new site at Popham Airport near Winchester, in Hampshire.

We are very excited about our new venue – it has incredible access from all across UK – just off the M3 at the very beginning of A303 – and only a hour from London by Train or Car.

One Love Festival was created in 1998 as UK’s 30th anniversary of one of the world’s greatest ever rock gigs, Bob Marley’s famous 1978 One Love concert. One Love Festival Is now 8 years old and The UK’s No1 Reggae and Dub camping event and has gained a loyal fan base and interest from all over the world.

The festival means such a lot to so many people in such different ways – we know everyone leaves the event experiencing their own exceptional One Love Festival moment and memory. We have established a wonderful customer base of Fun, Loving, Happy and loyal Reggae and Dub Fans from all over Europe and beyond!! Each year the festival grows organically both in production, vision and in Reggae Fans and this years move is to sustain this growth for future years – but still keeping to the original vibe of a intimate fun and friendly event. We have now established a platform on the Reggae and Dub artist touring circuit and when you attend One Love Festival you see familiar faces from resident artists that support us year in year out alongside guest / touring artists that you grew up listening to side by side with up and coming exciting new acts. All paying homage to our philosophy of One Love and to foundation Reggae Music. Playing Conscience Roots, Dub Music and enjoying all the sub genres of that. One Love = a unity, a bond between the brother man and women. A common purpose regardless of religion / race or creed – “PEACE and LOVE” to all of mankind. When you experience One Love it is something to be remembered forever.

One Love Festival is a melting pot; a multi-cultural, multi-ethical, 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, it will be a weekend that won’t easily be forgotten.

The One Love Festival took place every year in August until 2014 when it changed date a month later in September and is the UK’s Number 1 Reggae Camping Festival and is 8yrs old starting in 2008 in East Sussex.

About the original One Love Concert (1978):

The One Love Peace Concert was a large concert held on April 22nd, 1978, at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. This concert was held during a political civil war in Jamaica between opposing parties; Jamaican Labour Party and the People’s National Party. The concert came to its peak during Bob Marley & The Wailers’ performance of “Jammin”, when Marley joined the hands of political rivals, Michael Manley (PNP) and Edward Seaga (JLP).

Bob Marley said the following as he called the two politicians onstage and held their hands above his head: “His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie, I run lightning, leading the people of the slaves to shake hands. . . To show the people that you love them right, to show the people that you gonna unite, show the people that you're over bright, show the people that everything is all right. Watch, watch, watch, what you're doing, because. . I'm not so good at talking but I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. I'm trying to say, could we have, could we have, up here onstage here the presence of Mr. Michael Manley and Mr. Edward Seaga. I just want to shake hands and show the people that we're gonna unite . . . we're gonna unite . . . we've got to unite . . . The moon is high over my head, and I give my love instead. The moon is high over my head, and I give my love instead.”
