One Love Festival, first artist announcement!
Festival announcements come in stages – dates announced first, check – buying tickets, check – and the most exciting bit is finding out what line up you will be seeing over the weekend. The 2016 One Love Festival has pulled some crackers out of the bag this year, principally a great headliner in the form of Lee “Scratch” Perry. This is particularly exciting for me as (hangs head in shame) I have never seen him live. Add in Brinsley Forde (please play Warrior Charge, Brinsley…) Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood, Nick Manassah, Instrument of Jah….. the list goes on and on….!
It’s also nice to see local Norwich based crew, Roots Renegade on the bill, that’s a definite slot I shall be at.
The full list is below and there will of course be more added over the coming months.
