The Greatest Living Afro Caribbean Poet Benjamin Zephaniah – writes a Poem for One Love Festival

We are honoured The Greatest Living Afro Caribbean Poet Benjamin Zephaniah who is performing with his Revolutionary Minds Band at this years Festival – wrote a very special poem for us called ‘Loved Up’ …

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.

A New Lakeside and Ancient Woodland location

Dear Customers – 

I wanted to write to you personally before I made the announcement publicly via social networks of an imminent change to Festival arrangements 

We had a fantastic and happy 2016 Festival and I could not be more proud of the way we and our customers conducted ourselves. The event went without incident, no crime, no public disturbances, and not one noise complaint – we were left with the impression that a repeat booking was not going to be an issue especially with a consecutive year booking clause in contract – but to our utter dismay 3.5months later out of the blue we have been informed by The Parks they have taken a particular dislike to Camping which they didn’t feel was suitable for a Public Park. As we feel this is fundamental part of our relaxed vibe and community is not something we would compromise on

Although this news was a shock to us all and not the good news we were expecting I will not let Reggae Down. Nothing can Stop Reggae Music – after lots of sleepless nights and stress I have found a new wonderful licensed Lakeside location, with ancient woodland stages within 40mins drive from London

The new venue is : Colebrook Lakes, Kingstanding Way, Tunbridge Wells, Kent – TN2 3UP – 

I am happy to announce we have just secured U Roy the king of DJ’s and Mad Professor as well as our Battle of Dubplates contenders-  further information on new venue and line up please visit

I wish you all a fantastic Christmas and New year and really excited to welcome you to this idyllic lakeside location with ancient woodlands for our 10th Anniversary will prove to be a most exciting event 

One Love

Dan Wiltshire
Festival Director
