Festival Description

Peace One Day is a major concert for global peace on Peace Day, Friday September 21st. Peace One Day began as a film project founded by British filmmaker Jeremy Gilley in 1999 to establish the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence. In 2001 the Day was unanimously adopted by UN member states as 21 September annually—Peace Day. In 2006, for the first time in the Day’s history, Peace One Day successfully drove the initiative to instigate commitments to Peace Day in 200 countries, including all 192 UN member states, directly involving 27.6 million people. Jeremy Gilley has amassed an impressive list of high profile supporters through his work including Chris Martin, Sam Taylor Wood, Jonny Lee Miller, Simon Fuller, Sir Richard Branson, Kofi Annan and others. Headliners include Annie Lennox, Corinne Bailey Rae, James Morrison, Beth Orton, Marc Almond and others.
