Reggae singer Taurus Riley will be headlining the 2017 “One Love Festival” set for Tauranga, New Zealand on February 4-5.
Over eighty bands are set to play live on two stages at the festival. Joining the “She’s Royal” singer will be Junior Reid, Lee “Scratch” Perry and Big Youth, also Bass Odyssey and Saxon Sound System.
Event promoter Pato Alvarez says he expects the audience to outnumber last year’s 15,000 attendees. Alvarez added that, “Reggae is all about love, positive vibes and standing up for what you believe in. When you are at the One Love Festival you can feel that throughout the crowd and the performers. It creates an electric atmosphere.”
