Festival Preview: One Love 2012
The UK’s No1 Reggae Dub Camping Festival
Hop Farm – Paddock Woods – TN12 6PY – 10th – 12th August
Falling on Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary of independence, One Love is very pleased to celebrate the announcement of a brand new festival site for 2012 and beyond – the Hop Farm Family Park is established as a festival favourite for famous events such as The Hop Farm Music Festival and The War and Peace shows.
One Love Festival was created in 1998 to celebrate the UK’s 30th anniversary of one of the world’s greatest ever rock gigs, Bob Marley’s famous 1978 One Love concert. One Love Festival Is now 5 years old and is the UK’s No1 reggae and dub camping event. It has gained a loyal fan base with interest from all over the world. Festival Producer, Dan Wiltshire, commented:
“We are very excited about finding a true green field festival site back in the South East of England near where we first put the event on. Throughout the last 5yrs we had some amazing One Love Festival Highlights and they keep on getting better and better. The festival means such a lot to so many people in such different ways – we know everyone leaves the event experiencing their own exceptional One Love Festival moment and memory. We have established a wonderful customer base of Fun, Loving, Happy and loyal Reggae and Dub Fans from all over Europe and beyond!”
Each year the festival grows organically both in production, vision and in reggae fans and this year’s move is in order to sustain this growth for future years; while still keeping to the original vibe of an intimate, fun and friendly event. The festival has now established a platform on the reggae and dub artist touring circuit and when you attend One Love Festival you’ll see familiar faces, from resident artists that support us year-in year-out, alongside guest / touring artists that you grew up listening to, side-by-side with exciting up and coming new acts: All paying homage to their philosophy of One Love and foundation Reggae Music – playing conscience roots, dub music and enjoying all the sub-genres therein. One Love = a unity, a bond between the brother man and women, a common purpose regardless of religion, race or creed: “PEACE and LOVE” to all of mankind. When you experience One Love it is something to be remembered forever.
One Love Festival is a melting pot; a multi-cultural, multi-ethical, free trade and environmentally-friendly event, buzzing with creativity, fun, ideas and soul. One of the most diverse and unique festivals in the UK, the One Love Festival offers something for everyone and is an experience that should not be missed. Bringing together all the facilities and allures of a large-scale event but with the personal touch of a small, independent occasion, it will be a weekend that won’t easily be forgotten.
