About One Drop Reggae Festival
One Drop is a festival that believes in communal social values and promotes love and unity, welcoming people of all ages, races, colour and creed to come together and enjoy the good vibes of reggae, ska, roots and dub. The festival is inspired by the people and the natural backdrop of Malta and organised by a small community of reggae and music lovers.
One Drop is Malta’s first reggae festival, happening on the 4,5 & 6 of May 2018 at Zion, Marsascala, an iconic venue and the biggest reggae bar on the island.
