One Love Peace Festival History
The One Love Peace Festival has been inspired by the 1978 One Love Peace Concert in Kingston, Jamaica, which was held to bring about peace between the warring factions in Jamaica and Kingston’s inner city areas. Bob Marley & the Wailers, Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown, Beres Hammond and Big Youth were among the performers. As for footage of this historical concert: here’s a video in which Bob Marley sang Jammin’ and had rivaling political leaders Michael Manley and Edward Seaga shake hands after bringing them on stage.
