Diddy has been confirmed as the headline act at this years One Love Peace Festival, with RUN DMC legend Rev Run, T – Pain, Bunny Wailer and the UKs very own Chip (formerly Chipmunk) also forming part of the incredible line up.
This years festival will take place on Sunday 15th July at Mabley Green, and will transform East London with two stages set to take over on the day.
Diddy will headline The Contemporary stage and will perform some of the biggest hits spanning over his grammy award winning career, with members of his Bad Boy label joning him on stage. Headliner Diddy said: “I’m thrilled to be performing at the One Love Peace Festival, its gonna be a party unlike anything you’ve ever seen. I’m also hoping I’ll get to meet Prince Harry while I’m there! He seems like a cool guy to hang out with in the club.”
With 2012 marking the 15th anniversary of Notorious B.I.G’s untimely passing as well as a year that would have seen the first star of Bad Boy celebrate his 40th birthday, Diddy will also be performing a special tribute to the late star as part of an extended set at the One Love Peace Festival.
However, music will not be the only focus of the day as One Love Festival will be celebrating Jamaicas 50th Anniversary of independance with guest DJs, comedy corners, fairground rides and an international food village offering cuisines from each corner of the globe.
With a legacy of over 20 years, the One Love Peace Festival acts as an annual reminder of the organisers’ year-round efforts as they aim to unite revellers by promoting tolerance and reconciliation with community-led campaigns. This year the organisers will be launching The Peace Fund which will act as a long-term charitable trust fuelling varied outreach activity including the development of youth centres, outlets of parental support and local mentoring schemes offering coaching, advice and support to the frontline in Broken Britain.
Event organiser Dexter Ricketts said: “We are honoured to be staging another One Love Peace Festival with what is our most eclectic and exciting line-up to date. For us the event is all about raising multi-cultural awareness and tolerance through the powerful medium of music. We hope that the One Love Peace Festival continues to inspire change and promote social harmony within the British community.”
