The French band apologises for their absence from the festival due to personal reasons.
The French group Sinsémilia has had to cancel due to personal reasons. Sadly, their show on the main stage, scheduled for this Monday the 14th of August (22:10), won’t go ahead. At the festival we pass on our grievances for the passing of one of the musicians’ mothers. We were grateful that they were able to do the impossible by being in Benicàssim during this difficult time. In the end, it was not to be, but we can share a message that we have received, apologising for their absence and wishing us a happy festival. It is a gesture that speaks volumes. Thank you and everyone sends their best wishes!
“Regrettably, we will be unable to be involved in Rototom this year. But such tragic events in life take place without any warning… We hope that everyone will understand and forgive our absence. Have a great festival.”
In place of the French band, and at the same hour, we will have the band New Kingston (Jamaica/USA) on the Main Stage, initially scheduled on the same day on the Lion Stage. Following this change, we will bring the performance of the Spanish band Likle Mystic forward. They will come out on the Lion Stage on the same day, but at 4:15 (instead of 6:00)
