The success of Junior Reid’s birthday celebration in June led to converting next year’s celebration to a festival. The One Blood Festival is set to launch June 2018 and the goal is to create a movement in Jamaica that will promote unity and give back to those who have helped the music and culture to move forward.
The veteran artist’s music career spans over 35 years. Reid gained great international success as lead vocalist for Black Uhuru, his collaborations with Coldcut and The Soup Dragons and as a solo artist releasing the popular unity anthem, One Blood.
Reid and his team have started the process of booking artists for The One Blood Festival. The published location for The OBF is Saint Ann and will feature artists from both reggae and dancehall genres.
