Michael Bibi's One Life festival in London this past weekend was a family affair.

The Solid Grooves boss hosted a one-day festival in London on Saturday, 6th July, as part of his ongoing One Life world tour to celebrate being cancer-free since December 2023. (He was diagnosed with central nervous system lymphoma in June 2023.) Bibi brought out his dad Robin to play electro guitar to the crowd of 45,000, cheering him on.

"London, I will never forget that day", Bibi posted on Instagram. "I envisioned this show while in my hospital bed and seeing it come to life in front of my eyes is one of the most beautiful things I have ever been a part of. Thank you so much to everyone involved, we are back, and One Life is born."

At the festival, Bibi encouraged attendees to join the stem cell transplant register, which was key to his treatment for CNS lymphoma, in partnership with UK charity Anthony Nolan. The rest of the day's line-up featured Dixon, Chloé Caillet, Enzo Siragusa and Salomé Le Chat. 

Bibi was also mindful of the programming clashing with the England vs Switzerland Euros game, so the stage screens were split to display the match as well as the live show. See a clip of the dual screen and more photos from the festival below.
