The UK’s annual Reggae Camping Festival returns 2013. One Love aims to bring together the best in reggae, dub and electronic music. The festival was created in recognition of one of the worlds greatest ever rock gig, Bob Marley’s famous 1978 One Love concert.
One Love will see the gathering of music fans to listen to 100’s of performing artists and visual DJs, playing a selection of Reggae, Dub, and Electronic music. Staged amongst four music areas, the festival will also bring a whole host of additional entertainment, including a healing and green field area, body and soul tent, spoken word area, workshops and market stalls selling a range of craft and wares. With a huge variety of food and drink representing some of the world’s finest cuisines will be on offer.
One Love Festival offers something for everyone. 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.
About One Love concert (1978)
The One Love Peace Concert was a large concert held on April 22nd, 1978, at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. This concert was held during a political civil war in Jamaica between opposing parties; Jamaican Labour Party and the People’s National Party. The concert came to its peak during Bob Marley & The Wailers’ performance of “Jammin”, when Marley joined the hands of political rivals, Michael Manley (PNP) and Edward Seaga (JLP).
Bob Marley said the following as he called the two politicians onstage and held their hands above his head:
“His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie, I run lightning, leading the people of the slaves to shake hands. . . To show the people that you love them right, to show the people that you gonna unite, show the people that you're over bright, show the people that everything is all right. Watch, watch, watch, what you're doing, because. . I'm not so good at talking but I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. I'm trying to say, could we have, could we have, up here onstage here the presence of Mr. Michael Manley and Mr. Edward Seaga. I just want to shake hands and show the people that we're gonna unite . . . we're gonna unite . . . we've got to unite . . . The moon is high over my head, and I give my love instead. The moon is high over my head, and I give my love instead.”
