It is 10years since the last One Love Festival was held in the UK and now to to celebrate the life and times of Bob Marley on the 30th anniversary of his death it returns to the Wembley Arena on Sunday 31st July.

This all-day festival will commemorate Bob Marley’s untimely passing in 1981 aged just 36, and pay homage to his musical legacy with a series of themed sets from a host of international superstars, including legendary rap star Busta Rhymes who will headline the event in a UK festival exclusive.
