Reggae Revolution

UK Reggae Music is under Attack!!! But together the One Love community can help save UK Reggae scene – By Raising awareness of Reggae spreading the message of Peace and Uniting the People #ReggaeRevolution. Saving a Genre that is being marginalised and discredited –

Reggae music is being embraced more and more in the mainstream by Jamaican and non Jamaican artists yet less avenues than ever for genuine reggae in the UK.  “As Bob Marley famously said ‘the stone that the builder refused will be the head corner stone.’

The UK Reggae Fan base is there and is bigger then our European counterparts and now it needs to be heard. In the hey day UK Reggae Supporters use to come out in there 1000’s.  Reggae Music NEEDS UK Reggae Fans to Unite!!! Reggae is at the receiving end of a ever decreasing circle with only two Legal Reggae shows in the UK – Rodigan and Nesta McGregor on Sunday night and Robbo Ranx on Thursday’s.   I believe there is still a demand for reggae. More than its representation on radio and One Love Festival is testimony to that –

We need to change the tide and Now with UK’s first legal black music station choice FM recent rebrand the station became reggae-less, soca-less in one fell swoop. Radio 1 is Not representing at all.

Reggae was originally played on the streets, not on radio, Reggae is worthy of more respect and so are the fans and lovers of this music.”

Together united fans of Reggae we can help Save a Genre that is being marginalised and discredited – Together as One – buy your tickets now!!!

    Dissapointinh that next year’s festival clashes again with Rototom in Spain. Before last year, I attended onelove every year, but to hold it at the same time as another bigger reggae festival is a shame, because many people would like to attend both festivals
