The UK’s NO1 Reggae / Dub Festival Hop Farm – Paddock Woods – TN12 6PY
PRESS RELEASE: Dubstep and Dubwise breaks come to One Love.
The One Love reggae festival, now in its fifth year, has moved to a new site this year – Hop Farm in Kent, also the home of Vince Power's acclaimed new fest.
Amongst the top reggae acts – including Aba Shanti‐I, Cornell Campbell, Dawn Penn, the Disciples, Dub Syndicate, Iration Steppas, King Tubby, Monkey Mafia, Macka B, Smith & Mighty, Michigan and Smiley – there are a whole raft of top quality electronic music acts playing the Lively Up Yourself marquee at the event.
Tailoring to an extent their sets to reflect One Love's vibe, some great dubstep and dance acts will be rolling up to throw down some big anthems.
Barry Ashworth from the Dub Pistols has curated the dance tent on the Saturday night, bringing some of his peers along to join his Dub Pistols Soundsystem. Breakbeat legend Krafty Kuts, acclaimed duo The Freestylers, Mooqee & Pimpsoul, aka the Bombstrikes Soundsystem, and the Drum Monkeys will be spinning dubwise breaks, electro‐house and other sounds in keeping with the event.
Meanwhile, on the Friday night, dubstep comes to the dub festival, which was set up in memory of reggae legend Bob Marley. Curated by top dubstep‐inclined audio‐visual crew the Urban Knights, the line‐up is headed by dubstep pioneer Hatcha, one of the sound's pioneers since his days in Croydon with Skream & Benga and the like. The Kiss FM DJ will be joined by Eddie K, Fonti & Bushkin (formerly the Heartless Crew), Killsonic, and the Urban Knights themselves.

Notes to Editors
The One Love Festival takes place every year in August and is the UK’s Number 1 Reggae Camping Festival About the original 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.”
About the Jamaican Reggae Film Festival
In the decades since 1972 when Jamaica's first feature film "The Harder They Come" exposed reggae to the world on its soundtrack, a growing number of films have continued to be made that focus on Jamaica's music culture. In 2008 these films were given the title "Reggae Films" and gathered together in one place for the first ever REGGAE FILM FESTIVAL, held in New Kingston February 25th‐27th.
With an inaugural event in February 2008, the Reggae Film Festival showcases films in which Jamaica's Reggae music culture is displayed, documented and memorialized in features, documentaries and short films, animation and music videos. In five years the Reggae Film Festival has showcased more than 200 films made by Jamaicans, global reggae researchers and fans from the Caribbean, UK, USA, Canada, Europe, Japan, and Africa. The focus of many documentaries on the history of Jamaican music and music makers, has given the Jamaica Film Academy an archive of historical material on the genre genre that preserves on film the oral memories of a culture that that emerged from the Rastafari movement and spread to and been honored by the world.
