5. One Love Festival (August 15-17; Leighton Buzzard, England)

England’s One Love Festival, in the colorfully named town of Leighton Buzzard north of London, has once again put together an interesting lineup, with lots of names you won’t find on any other festival this summer like Apache Indian and King Kong. LargeUp family Addis Pablo and Suns of Dub will also make an appearance, as will Cocoa Tea, John Holt, Wailing Souls, Cornell Campbell, Brushy One String, Michael Prophet, Macka B and Jesse Royal. For the second straight year the festival will host a soundclash dubbed “Battle of the Dubplates,” with last year’s winner  Sir Coxsone Sound set to defend their crown. The event will also feature a Channel One meets Saxon Sound set, and Gorgon Sound System featuring Bunny Lee. Get an idea of the vibes at One Love with this video.
