Dreadlock Holiday is a reggae song by the English band 10cc from 1978.

The single was about three weeks at number 1 in the Dutch Top 40in the National Charts , four weeks and one week in the UK Singles Chart. It tightened the 44th place in the American Billboard Hot 100. The song was covered by Boney m. on the album Eye Dance (1985).

The song is about a tourist who is in Jamaica continuously harassed by people who want to have money from him. Possible is the story based on the experience of Justin Hayward and Eric Stewart during a vacation on Barbados. [1The reggae style of the song is in line with this story. The Group 10cc plays usually no reggae, but art rock.

B-side was Nothing Can Move Me, that was not on the album.
