One Love Festival are very excited to be partnering up with the amazing Dreamland and it’s fantastic team – Margate Dreamland is an exciting venue located in a destination with a very grand history; a place that has created thousands of childhood memories and happy experiences for generations through it’s seaside adventure park. Now with their huge development and transformation into a multi purpose adventure park and music venues, we at One Love Festival, the UK’s No1 Reggae and Ska Festival intend to carry this tradition forward to a new generation, creating happy Reggae and Dub memories by showcasing the world’s biggest live acts and musicians of the genre mixed in with our One Love Festival magic and vibes. These string of showcase events throughout the summer of 2018 are going to build us gently towards our ultimate goal of hosting a full on One Love Festival camping and weekend extravaganza music festival in June 2019 alongside our main annual event in September in Somerset. This is going to firmly ensure the entire country can experience Reggae, Dub, Ska and all of the sub genres through our One Love Events.

grew up in Camden, so it’s safe to say that there is not much this boy has not seen. He is hard to shock yet easy to please, armed with an eclectic taste in music and film. Jago is always ready to tackle anything from Punk Rock, D & B, House to Opera. This makes him a great person to send out into the thick of things. He has a passion for cinematography and fine dining and constantly tries to mix the two. If he is not dancing, eating or watching a movie then he is probably working his way through a bottle of champagne with the local talent. HE NEVER SLEEPS!
