The One Love Festival took place for the first time in Wiesen in Burgenland in 2019 and was a complete success. With 5,500 enthusiastic visitors at the ONE LOVE FESTIVAL, Austria's biggest reggae festival was born.
On the evenings of Friday (4.8.23) and Saturday (5.8.23), well-known reggae artists such as Gentleman, Capleton, Anthony B, Alborosie, Tarrus Riley, Horace Andy and Lila Iké will perform on the festival stage in Wiesen. The line-up also includes well-known local artists such as Rekall, House of Riddim, Badmandi and the Rootzbuam, Dubblestandart, Freemyend, the Rocksteady Conspiracy and many more. We also offer regional artists and musicians the opportunity to perform on our stage.
After the concerts on both evenings, a DJ set invites you to continue dancing and partying, accompanied by the Burgenland sound G-Spot. Relaxation is provided by the food market, which offers a wide selection of exotic dishes (Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, regional and much more), as well as the CBD area. In addition, there will be film screenings and book presentations on both days, followed by discussions with filmmaker Sebastian Schwager and Professor Werner Zips. We also offer free workshops to our visitors from the drum with the Burgenland association Drum Energy sow as children's yoga, Tnazen, and screen printing.
Since we are one of the few festivals in Burgenland where children are also allowed, there will be a large children's area again this year with a bouncy castle, workshops, face painting for children, lectures, etc. (By the way, children up to and including 12 years of age have free admission to the entire festival, and young people up to 18 years of age pay only half).
Wiesen is considered one of the most beautiful festival locations in Europe and always offers a unique atmosphere. The dreamlike park and camping area stretches from the cherry orchard to the nut forest and the fairy tale meadow. This makes the festival an all-round experience, a vacation for friends and family.
In addition, we offer our visitors an art market to browse, free parking and a free shuttle bus to the nearby train station. This makes the largest reggae festival in Austria a musical short vacation with Jamaican flair in the middle of Burgenland.
In 1999 Bunfiresquad was founded. For 19 years we have been organizing reggae and dancehall concerts in Vienna and all over Austria. We have successfully organized several 100 concerts and festivals with artists like Sean Paul, Stephen Marley, Gentleman, Julian Marley, Max Romeo, Toots and the Maytals, Eek a Mouse, Beres Hammond, Lee Perry, and many more.
As reggae promoters, our goal is to bring the message of peace, love, equality, freedom and togetherness to the world. In 2015 we created our merchandise Bunfirewear. Inspired by the messages and sounds of reggae music, we give it a new life in a fashionable way. Not to forget our root and connection with nature. Our prints contain positive messages, as we believe that the world needs more of them today. Furthermore we work with organic cotton and fairtrade, also the print colors are environmentally friendly as well as our packaging. In 2018 we decided to take a step forward and start the biggest reggae festival in Austria.
