A popular music festival has moved to a new location for 2022.
The One Love Fesitval, which was previously held in Kent, will now take place at the Wiston Estate in Steyning from August 12-14.
One Love was launched in 2007 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the One Love Peace concert in Jamaica in 1978. Bob Marley, by creating and hosting a musical event, helped unite 2 rival political factions and end the civil war in Jamaica.
One Love 2022 marks a radical overhaul of the traditional musical offering of events. The intention is to move away from exclusively Jamaican music and towards a much broader sound, including rock, soul, and all forms of dance music. It will also celebrate local diversity and ingenuity in music and art.
One love is in partnership with the Rio Ferdinand Foundation, which is a registered charity that has been helping young people from the most disadvantaged communities in the UK and Ireland overcome inequalities, divisions and racism for over ten years.
The Foundation has a long history of using music, the arts and sports as a means to bring people together, to give a voice to young people and communities and to build a stronger and more inclusive society.
The Festival shares a vision with the Rio Ferdinand Foundation – that music can bring people from all walks of life together, give people a voice and help build a more peaceful and inclusive society.
A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to directly deliver education, training and skills programs to young people in the heart of UK communities to create a stronger and more inclusive society through music and culture.
