Benjamin Zephaniah – specially written poem for One Love Festival

Our Friend Benjamin Zephaniah has written a poem especially for One Love Festival called ‘Loved Up’ which pretty much sums up the festival… Tickets on Sale now!!!! www.onelovefestival.co.uk – 16th – 18th August

We dance to mighty words,
We speak to righteous riddims,
We dub it hard.

We get up united,
We stand up undivided,
Like lions in zion
We are fearless wise eyes.

We are peacemaking rockers,
Dancing on grass
Loving under trees,
As creation intended.

How we love sky,
How we love each other,
Drum love
Bass love,
The vibes, the vibes
How sweet thou art.

And so, we who are gathered here
Skanking top ranking under European skies,
Know that we who have gathered here
Are joined up riddimwise.
Let our minds and bodies be free
And let us be moved by our unity.

This is the dread magic operating,
This is the One Love happening.
