About One Love Festival
At the forefront of the UK Reggae and World music scene for over 11yrs – The People’s Festival of un-dividing peace and un-conquering love – we create a world that allows you to submerge yourselves within it completely – a reality where hope and love joins everybody into a combined and unbreakable positive force – where everyone is welcome and no-one’s judged – an atmosphere of acceptance where there are no borders One People, One World.
New areas to this year’s festival include:
Kaya World Music Stage – an outdoor stage introducing to you a packed line up of exciting Music from around the World.
The Rasta Village – as you approach the Rasta Village you’ll hear the traditional Nyabinghi drumming and chanting getting louder, in the Village you’ll be surrounded by the Rastafarian life in motion and will see the principles of living in harmony with nature and the role of Haile Selassie I.
The Field of Love – their dedicated field of holistic, wellbeing and spiritual awakening. A place to relax, participate and expand your minds with one or as many of their workshops as you desire.
After 10 years of great events in the Home Counties we are really excited to be taking the Festival to the UK’s spiritual home, to a mystical land engulfed in folk law, myths and legends – wonderful tales of magic and wonder including Stonehenge, Glastonbury Abbey and Tor – with unbelievable natural beauty, truly a “Gods own Country” of the lush rolling hills and valleys of Somerset. A place where the biggest and best Festival on Earth started “The Glastonbury Festival” (we have always thought Reggae is under represented at Glastonbury so we have taken Reggae to Glastonbury) With Glastonbury taking a year off in 2018 we thought the area needed some blessed up reggae vibes where we will introduce Reggae and Reggae Culture to a much larger audience –
This years presentation includes x 4 Nights Camping (30th + 31st August, 1st + 2nd September) our Rasta Village, increased toilet and pamper facilities, increased children’s and circus activities, more Healers in our dedicated Field of Love, a more relaxed laid back vibe even more spread out arenas a Stone Circle and with more emphasis on Nature and Peace. We are going back to the root of all festivals; a camping weekend festival dedicated to a better world
One Love peace Concert 1978 – background
Bob Marley and The Wailers performed at the One Love Peace concert in Kingston’s National Arena with other main-line reggae artists of the day, in an attempt to link Jamaica’s feuding political parties;
Against all the odds, Marley symbolically joined the hands of bitter rivals Michael Manley and Edward Seaga on stage following the concert the opposing factions having seen that their leaders weren’t hell bent on killing each other cooled down the conflict.
