International recording artiste Khago will join a whole host of international stars such as Diddy and Chipmunk for the One Love Peace Festival, the UK’s number one urban music festival, which returns in spectacular fashion on July 15th. The festival will have a stellar line-up across two massive stages that are set to transform East London’s Mabley Green into a tropical fairground on Sunday 15th July 2012.

 

Other reggae acts on the show include Barrington Levy, Capleton and Luciano who will also share the stage to celebrate ‘Jamaica 50’; 50 years of Jamaican independence.

 

Hip-Hop powerhouse Diddy will headline the event on The Contemporary Stage, performing hits from an illustrious career in music that has spanned two decades and garnered four Grammy awards. Special guests from renowned rap label Bad Boy will also join Diddy on stage with past and present members of the highly celebrated roster reuniting in a landmark festival exclusive.

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, his mentor, will also be performing a special tribute to the late star as part of an extended set at the One Love Peace Festival.

 

Rap royalty and Rock and Roll hall of famer Rev Run will also take to the decks on The Contemporary Stage at this year’s festival where the front man from seminal hip-hop group Run D.M.C will spin an unmissable mix of old school classics and new school hits with some explosive surprises along the way. Widely credited for ushering rap music into mainstream culture, Rev Run completes the legendary offering at this year’s event as two of hip-hop’s crossover vanguards bring the festival to an explosive close.

 

Waving the British flag on The Contemporary Stage will include homegrown star Chip (Chipmunk) with Grammy-award-winning artist T-Pain bringing his three-ringed circus to East London in his first ever UK festival performance.
