Julian Marley approached the One Love Festival expressing his interest in performing at this year's event which celebrates his father's infamous 1978 One Love Concert. The One Love Festival Team have confirmed that Julian Marley will be playing an exclusive Saturday night set on the One Love Stage.

Julian Marley has been blessed by his father's great talent, from a young age music has been his life, at the age of five he cut his first demo tape, recording a version of his father's classic composition, 'Slave Driver', at the Marley family's Tuff Gong studio in Kingston. Since then Julian has devoted himself to a life in music, mastering a variety of instruments and writing songs that reflect his dedication to spiritual upliftment and social change.

Three albums later Julian has toured the world, both as a solo performer backed by his Uprising Band and as a member of Ghetto Youths International, a musical collective whose core members are Julian and his brothers, Stephen and Damian. Stephen and Damian Marley have both contribute to his new album 'Awake' that Julian will perform with the Uprising Band at this years One Love Festival alongside some of his father's classics in the spirit of his father Bob Marley.

Festival Organiser, Dan Wiltshire, commented, "One Love Festival is now in its 3rd year and is so honoured the Son of Bob Marley to not only acknowledge our festival but ask to perform has just blown me away. Julian will be representing his father memory and spirit at this years event. We originally put this event on to raise awareness of Bob Marley's message 3 years later we actually have a Marley performing. It is something we could only have dreamed of and we feel truly honoured to have Julian Marley performing. Its going to be a truly amazing and memorable show and we can't wait!"

One Love Festival, created in recognition of the 30th anniversary of one of the world's greatest ever rock gigs, Bob Marley's famous 1978 One Love concert, held during a political civil war between the Jamaican Labour Party and the People's National Party and it peaked during Marley & The Wailers' performance of 'Jammin', when the singer joined the hands of political rivals, Michael Manley (PNP) and Edward Seaga (JLP) accompanied by a flash of lighting and clap of thunder from the heavens. Following the concert the opposing factions having seen that their leaders weren't hell bent on killing each other cooled down the conflict and eased the erupting civil war.

Previously confirmed for 2010 are headliners Luciano, and Mikey General alongside acts that include Adrian Sherwood, Conscious Sounds feat King General, Daddy Colonel, David Rodigan, Dub Rockers, Earl Gateshead, Mungos Hi Fi, Muscle Head, Nereus Joseph, Papa Levi, Roger Robin, Rootikal DJs, Ruben Da Silva, Saxon Sound System, Senior Sandy, Silent Disco, Trevor Sax, Trojan Sound System, Twilight Circus Dub Sound System, and Unity Hi FI. With more acts still to be announced. For the line-up details as available please click here.
