"It really is a passion project and very much a labour of love - and love is ultimately at the heart of it all. 

"I wanted to create a space where our music community can come together and share in the making of wonderful memories, friendships, love and happiness, all underpinned by a super dope musical journey. We Are Love, it's as simple as that really" 
We Are Love is four bliss-filled days and magical party nights where revellers can dance in the rolling meadows and enjoy a rave in the mystical woods.
