For the last thirteen years, Radio Active 89FM’s One Love has been the premier outdoor summer music festival in Wellington. This Waitangi Day (Saturday 6th of February), these words won’t ring any less true as in the spirit of our times, One Love expands into new and exciting musical directions.

With a crowd of 15,000 expected at Wellington’s Hataitai Velodrome, attendees can expect an emphasis on unity within diversity, summer fun and a keen expression of our unique contemporary cultural identity as citizens of Aotearoa, by way of here and the world.

This year’s entertainment, a unique blend of reggae, country, folk and soul, will be provided by the esteemed likes of Sola Rosa (feat. Spikey Tee), Don McGlashan, The Eastern, The Midnights, Mungos Hi-Fi feat. Ras Stone (Scotland) and Richard Nunns and The Etymologists.

DJ support will be handled by Radio Active 89FM’s Roots and Culture DJs Topknot, Ras Twig, Art Official and Misteek, with host MC duties conducted by Radio Active 89FM’s resident host Don Luchito.

Sola Rosa has made a big impression on audiences over the last few years. With English Jamaican emcee Spikey Tee flying in especially for One Love, expect big vibes and joyful noise. And with New Zealand music icon Don McGlashan, a recipient of two Silver Scroll awards and the penman behind some of our most loved songs from the past 30 years, this will be a A-class,Top Ranking line-up.

For the discerning music lover, the treasure-trove of One Love is a rare performance by Richard Nunns and The Etymologists. A towering musical and cultural figure, Richard Nunns was a chief architect behind the resurrection of Taonga Puoru (traditional Maori instrumentation) in modern day New Zealand. A 2009 recipient of the Queens Service Medal, membership in the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame and status as an Artist Laureate of the Arts Foundation of New Zealand – Richard Nunns embodies the sense of togetherness and respectful forward progress that is the spirit of One Love.

The Midnights on the other hand, are New Zealand’s leading underground orthodox reggae band. The Eastern are one of our finest roots country bands. And Mungo’s HiFi are a prodigiously experienced Scottish reggae sound system who connect with classic reggae/ragga vocalists such as Top Cat and Ranking Joe. Joining Mungo’s HiFi for One Love is emcee Ras Stone.

Everything said and done, combining this powerhouse of cross-genre (yet complimentary) talent with the majestic scenic coastal views of the Hataitai Velodrome and projections of 15,000 attendees can only equal one thing - a party where people come first.

Additionally, One Love features a bar, arts & crafts, fashion and food stalls, and amusements for the kids. Admission for this year's event is $10 the best value festival in Aotearoa and in keeping with past policies aimed at providing a friendly family atmosphere.

There are food stalls, a licensed on-site bar, children’s entertainment, a chill-out tent and plenty of room for dancing and lounging. For the past 4 years One Love attracted over 12,000 people. As it is always a highly anticipated event, 2010’s One Love looks set to be even more popular.

Radio Active 89FM was New Zealand's 1st FM radio station being established as a student voice back in 1977. Standing proudly outside commercial radio norms, Radio Active is a essential reference point for music, culture, art, film and fashion, successfully identifying and promoting emerging creative talent while retaining a high on-air standard.
