The daylong family-oriented festival will be composed of many elements but all share in a single idea: a state of being unified as one. As Bob Marley so humbly said, “one love, one aim, one destiny.” The festival is being dubbed “a positive celebration highlighting the power of word, sound and art
uniting us all as members of one human family”.
The festival aims to inspire people to give time, food and any other contributions they can to help make the world a better place in which to live. “We’re accomplishing this task by spreading art, culture and music while offering relief and humanitarian aid.” “One Love Nutrifest is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.”
Artists performing for this year’s festival include: Tiken Jah Fakoly from Ivory Coast, Cultura Profética from Puerto Rico, Gondwana from Chile, Natiruts from Brazil, Black Slate & Carroll Thompson from United Kingdom, Bachaco from Venezuela and Stephen “Ragga” Marley from Jamaica.
Keeping in the spirit of unity, attendees are asked to contribute two or more non-perishable food items as part of the cost of admission or as admission in whole. Entry is free for those that bring canned foods and arrive before three, and reduced thereafter. Proceeds from the event will benefit Feeding South Florida. Their mission is to end hunger by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts, and transforming lives through innovative programming and education.
“Given the philanthropic nature of this event, we’re inviting all civic minded companies to join us as partners in this event,” Alfonso D’Niscio Brooks said. “It’s a great way to get your name in front of thousands of people while ensuring that thousands of dollars are donated to a very worthy cause.”
Festival officials and their media partners also are encouraging attendees to ride their bikes and make use of our bike valet or use public transportation to get to the festival.
