Good vibes filled the air over the weekend at the two-day reggae music festival One Love.

Tens of thousands of people squished into Tauranga Domain to feel the love, with big artists like Katchafire, Six60, Sons of Zion, Aaradhna and Tomorrow People attracting big crowds.

The sun was roasting, the tunes were pumping and there was something for everyone.

"You can rage in the mosh pit or chill a bit further back," festival-goer Lucy Langeluddecke said, comfortably sitting on a picnic blanket, a drink in hand.

"I'm loving it. The organisers have catered to all the patrons needs - there's free sunscreen, water and plenty of toilets and bins."

She said everyone had been respectful so far, no one was too wasted and, surprisingly, people were cleaning up after themselves.

It wasn't all free sunblock and toilets - the line up was fantastic, she said. "They've spread all the good acts through each day so they aren't all grouped at once."

One Love was a 10 out of 10 for Ms Langeluddecke.

The "crazy heat" was getting to one festival-goer but she wasn't about to let it get in the way of a great concert.

"The vibe is working for me, the set up they have here is great," Te Aroha Henare said.

The festival was one of several major events in Tauranga over the summer period bringing in visitors. Four months out from the festival, accommodation in the city was almost booked out.
