Yay! The One Love reggae festival is right now, I’ve just got home and will go back for more tomorrow and probably Sunday as well. It was great! I can’t remember the last time I went to a festival, it must be years, but I am right in the mood for it now.
Here are some photos from Day 1.
Setting up. There are I think 5 stages in total, plus numerous bars, stalls selling food and festival crap, etc. I immediately scored myself some beads and a fluffy cushion to sit on (WIN).
I love this next pic, even though the sun isn’t shining. Observe the young lad dancing on the right. He doesn’t know that couple. He was going up behind various strangers and doing crazy dancing to make his friends laugh.
A crowd gathers at the main stage as the sun sets. On stage is reggae DJ David Rodigan.
Instrument of Jah sound system playing some heavy, heavy tunes in their tent.
The highlight of my night: General Levy!! Awesome. I screamed, jumped up and down, yelled ‘booyaka’ a lot and finally stood still long enough to get video. More news tomorrow. I am glad now that I am there on my own.
