One Love Festival announces dates for 2016
Excellent news hit the internet this week, with the announcement of the 2016 dates for the UK’s premier reggae and dub festival. The three day reggae fest will run from Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th September. It’s not the ideal dates for some, being slap bang before the schools go back on the Monday, but having experienced it in 2014 it is well worth the effort to try and get there.
The organisers describe the event as ‘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’. I totally agree with that, myself and Mrs Paper Lion had a great time in 2014. With excellent bands, great Sound System tents and a very friendly welcoming atmosphere, it did rank as my top festival experience.
One Love Festival takes place at Hainault Forest Country Park, Chigwell, Essex and early bird tickets are now available through their website. The most exciting part will be the artist announcements, I am sure there will be a cracking line-up.
Hopefully I will see you there!
