THIS WAS ONE DROP 2019

THE TINIEST REGGAE FESTIVAL IN EUROPE

On a little, sunny island in the Mediterranean sea you’ll find the tiniest reggae festival in Europe – three days of reggae, ska and dub, dancing in the yard under the olive trees. Fill your belly with Jamaican food, wash it down with a rum cocktail, check out the colourful market and enjoy the good vibes.

One Drop Festival Reggae Festival is back for the second edition with a killer line-up, featuring the likes of Scottish sound system giants Mungo’s Hi Fi with the lyrical machine Charlie P and the beautiful voice of Eva Lazarus on the mics on Saturday night.

Friday we host the return of Italian dub legend Paolo Baldini Dub Files with his live dub show featuring Jacob & Lo from Mellow Mood and Forelock outta Arawak.

On Sunday, London based sound system crew and record label Reggae Roast takeover the yard featuring Adam Prescott and the amazing voices of Donovan Kingjay and Natty Campbell. A musical journey into reggae, from rocksteady to dancehall to roots and finishing off with some heavy dub.

Flying in are also one of the most beautiful voices in the business Cian Finn, Leeds girl Helz playing one of her reggae and dancehall sets and master selector outta Italy James Diddio. Completing the line-up are new local ska band Island Roots, our pride and joy Island Rockers Sound System as well as some of the finest local djs and awesome lighting by Late Interactive.

One Drop Reggae Festival will be happening on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of May 2019 at Marrakech, Gianpula, l/o Rabat, Malta.

WELCOME TO ONE DROP

Three lovely days of reggae, ska, dub, Jamaican street food, rum, beer, colourful market, ethiopian coffee, jamming, fun workshops, beautiful people, dancing and good vibes.

Playing on Island Rockers Sound System with a set starting with chilled out roots leading to uplifting dub and steppers.

Also out of London comes another legend – MC Brother Culture, the lyrical machine, he’s been shelling hits since the 80s with countless legendary collaborations with top reggae & dub producers out there. Pon Di Corner will warm up the crowds for him on opening night, Friday, while Saturday make sure you’re ready for some hot stomping and skanking action with local giants The Rifffs MT as we indulge in a night of ska and reggae.

It is a celebration of Caribbean culture and together with awesome music we will have a specially dedicated rum bar by Havana Club, a Jamaican street food stall in collaboration with Zion’s kitchen, awesome stage light design by Late Interactive, Kefa Coffee’s Ethiopian coffee, a sweet little market and an activity packed Saturday afternoon with a jamming session by MusicPlayground, fun workshops, Mojito making lessons and more to be announced.

The first edition of One Drop Reggae Festival will be happening on the 4th, 5th and 6th of May 2018 at Zion Reggae Bar, Marsascala. The festival opens its doors on Friday at 18:00 and runs till 1:00, while Saturday and Sunday from 13:00 till 1:00. We encourage everyone to attend early and enjoy the festival to its fullest.

The festival is starting out on a small scale with limited entry for every night to ensure everyone has enough space to shake that booty. We’re hoping to grow the festival year on year to something really big if JahJah wants.

The festival wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the support of these awesome brands – our main sponsors Havana Club and also Corona, Quicklets, Late Interactive, Ziggi Rolling Papers & Zion Reggae Bar.
