One Love

Recommended Posts

I'd be all over this if it was still in the south west.

I think this is part of their problem, you need to build up a bit of a loyal following in one place - give people a great weekend, and then hold on to them.

Yeah, they seem to have struggled to find a home - the one i went to a few years back was in Essex and that was no where near full although really enjoyable.

Hmmm, not sure it's 'struggled'. The licence was broken and the One Love organiser (as well as the site licence holder) prosecuted for the last site it used.

I remember reading last year that they had hoped to have a permanent home at the Somerset location, however previously to that as far as i remember they had been to Tewkesbury,(which i know was a one off as it was a replacement for the Winchester venue), Milton Keynes,  a couple of different Essex locations, The Hop Farm and another venue in Kent. That's what i meant by struggled to find a home.

back from an absolutely brilliant weekend.

venue not as good as last year, but its a completely different type of place so it not really a fair comparison, i liked the venue.

it was a great event, great vibe, great people and some really great music all blessed with perfect weather.

personal highlights were - Vin Gordon, Trinity, Macka B, Dub FX, Instrument of Jah, Saxon Sound, Charlie P and having a wander round the little farm on sunday morning.

spent most of my time in the Dub Shack - standing in front of a speaker stack on a beautiful afternoon it just doesn't really get any better than that.

i think the Rasta Village was in the wrong place - just putting up a gazebo and a sign saying "rasta village" didn't seem right, i really loved taking some time out with the drumming for a while but maybe they should have positioned it out in the corner of the campsite area so it could have been an area by itself?

only negative was - the horrible scraping noise coming from my exhaust while trying to get over all the speed bumps - but it did make a few people laugh so there you go.

anyways - it was brilliant.
