One Love offers festival goers hundreds of performing artists and visual DJs, playing a selection of Reggae, Dub, and Electronic music. Staged amongst four music areas, the festival will also bring a whole host of additional entertainment, including a new healing and green field area, body and soul tent, spoken word area, workshops and lectures.

This year sees the festival team-up with the Marley family owned Marley Beverage Company and their relaxation drinks, Marley's Mellow Mood, as headline sponsor. The brand is also using One Love as an opportunity to raise awareness of the Marley's official charitable platform (to which a portion of all Marley¹s Mellow Mood sales are donated). Commenting on the collaboration of Marley's Mellow Mood and 1Love.Org, Cedella Marley, Bob's daughter, said, "Marley's Mellow Mood helps move my family's mission forward with the principles of our father's belief in that calm breeds peace, respect and love, while helps pay those messages forward."
