Following the recent nearby plane crash The council have decided that the prospect of having to evacuate 3000 festival goers is just too much of a risk and deemed the Popham site unworkable for our Music Festival.
Whilst this seemed like a massive blow it actually turned out to be a blessing as we have now secured a magical new site. Croft Farm, with its lake-side camping and caravanning facilities, is an ideal “Reggae by the River” setting.
A Thriving Water park encompassing wonderful Gloucestershire countryside with access to The River Avon and stunning views of Bredon Hill.
At night the sunset over the Malverns is spellbinding…
Nothing can beat waking up next to a shimmering lake with the festival starting to stir in the background.Whats even better is we’ll now have the extra bonus of being able to offer lakeside activities for everyone!

One Love Festival History
One Love Festival’s inception in 2008 marked the 1978 30th anniversary of Reggae legend Bob Marley’s concert of the same name. The famous concert was held in Kingston, Jamaica during a political civil war between opposing parties; Jamaican Labour Party and the People’s National Party. The concert came to its peak when Marley joined the hands of political rivals, Michael Manley (PNP) and Edward Seaga (JLP).
The One Love Festival’s popularity increases each year, and brings together some of the industry’s greatest veterans, alongside the rising stars of tomorrow. Being the only reggae camping festival in the UK makes it a special occasion with a friendly and chilled vibe. For those who love the Caribbean sound, this is your chance to experience the taste too with a huge range of catering outlets providing authentic food. Also expect an array of independent
stall holders selling crafts, clothing, cultural items and most importantly records, so you can take some of the music home.
