One Love Festival
Reggae, Dub, Chill out and Electronic
30th Anniversary of Bob Marley 1978 One Love concert, A full moon solar eclipse weekend during the Perseid meteor shower.
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 and unite them in handshake accompanied by a flash of lighting and clap of thunder from the heavens , following the concert, the opposing factions, having seen that their leaders weren\'t hell bent on killing each other, cooled down the conflict.
In this 30th anniversary, We hope to highlight a landmark occasion and legendary artist while pushing the theme for Peace and Acceptance! Mixing Reggae with Chill Out and Deep Electronic Music!

Food connoisseurs will sample delicacies from around the globe, while supping on real ale and organic cider, from one of the areas most well-known for its fabulous produce.
If that’s not enough, the setting for this festival was once home to a renowned space observatory site where the Royal Greenwich Observatory placed the Isaac Newton Telescope and one of the very best sites in the country for star gazing. One Love has been planned to celebrate a full-moon solar eclipse weekend, whilst the famous Perseid meteor shower* takes place, offering an extravaganza of activity, the likes of which are seldom seen. As night falls, the audience will be treated to some of the most spectacular solar activity of the year as they settle into the extraordinary nearby campsite.
