Following on from the sell-out success of this year’s event, Pato Entertainment is pleased to be bringing back the music and cultural extravaganza to the Tauranga Domain on Waitangi weekend - Saturday, February 4 and Sunday, February 5, 2017.

In its fifth year, ONE LOVE is considered to be one of the world’s leading reggae-based festivals and due to popular demand, organisers are boosting capacity at the venue in 2017. They’re also upping the stakes when it comes to talent, with an international line-up that’s second to none.

Straight out of Hawaii’s thriving roots, rock, and reggae scene areRebel Souljahz, FIJI (AKA George Veikoso -the Polynesian ‘King of Reggae’) and The Green. Add to the melting potSpawnbreezie & Josh Wawa with his unique style of island sounds, Kiwi reggae legends Katchafire andJamaica’s ‘man of the moment’ Tarrus Riley, and you’ve got what’s sure to be one of hottest festival line-ups in the upcoming southern hemisphere summer.

In keeping with ONE LOVE’s commitment to provide festival-goers with every spectrum of the reggae rainbow, there’s also a nod to the old school with Britain’s mighty Steel Pulse - who promised they’d be on stage in 2017 after unfortunately pulling out of this year’s festival at the last minute due to an illness in the band. Also on the bill are Black Slate of ‘Amigo’ and ‘Boom Boom’ fame.

And as always, there’s a solid local contingent made up some of the best Aotearoa has to offer, including Sammy J, TomorrowPeople, Sons of Zion and the super-talented soul sister Aaradhna, who will be undoubtedly be one of the festival’s drawcards, with her new album BROWN GIRL.

The festival is being held at Tauranga Domain, conveniently located in the heart of the city and just a short trip to some of New Zealand’s most beautiful beaches.

Camping will again be an option for those coming from out of town. Those looking for other accommodation are urged to get in quickly, because motels and hotels are already filling up.


This event is fully licensed and food and alcohol will be available on the day R18 event.
