The biggest reggae festival in the country is starting today in Hainault, with a star studded line up set to thrill music lovers.

Kicking off the One Love Festival, in Hainault Country Park tonight, is dub pioneer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

On Saturday Big Youth, The Congos and iconic DJ Don Letts will be performing, while on Sunday the park, in Romford Road, will host to the final of the Battle of the Dubplates.

Festival director Dan Wiltshire said: “It’s a celebration of love, peace and unity. I want to make this the reggae capital of Europe.”

As well as the great music being played, festival-goers will be able to enjoy great grub from all over the world.
