After seven intense days, the living reggae legend Burning Spear starred this monday in the last great musical party of the Main Stage, together with the mystical energy of Luciano, the experience of Africa Unite and the dub of Iseo & Dodosound.
The live broadcasts from the various digital channels have streamed more than 650,000. The festival bids farewell to an edition that once again creates the atmosphere of diversity, interculturalism and commitment that makes the musical event a global experience with no age limit.
Our closing day welcomes the Jamaican legend Burning Spear today, who will be accompanied on the Main Stage by the Rasta messenger Luciano, Africa Unite from Italy and the Spaniards Iseo&Dodosound. In one week, we have totalled 388 hours of music and 204 hours of conferences, workshops, debates and other cultural events.
The mystical reggae of The Abyssinians, the only show in Europe of the legendary Sly Dunbar & The Revolutionaries, the hip hop of Mala Rodriguez and the versatility of Alborosie were the protagonists this Sunday of a unique musical journey on the Main Stage.
The fifth night of the 2022 Rototom Sunsplash brought together different generations of artists to create unprecedented connections, through an impressive programme. Almost every night, the ‘foundation’ artists are in charge of heating up the Main St
The Italian Alborosie, who has been faithful to us since our beginnings, and the Andalusian rapper and vocalist Mala Rodríguez, complete the lineup of the Main Stage. Our 2022 edition has already received 120,000 attendees in its first four days.
The line-up for the Main Stage this Saturday, 20th August, will be completed by the legendary Horace Andy, the Jamaican Hempress Sativa, an exponent of the new reggae scene, as well as the Italian-Spanish tandem Mellow Mood-Emeterians. The Social Forum begins its session with the goal of peace and journalistic analysis by Inna Afinogenova, Irene Zugasti, Olga Rodríguez and Miquel Ramos.
The worthy replacement of Black Uhuru, who dropped out of the line-up after the cancellation of their European tour, was one of the most eccentric characters in Jamaican music. Eek-A-Mouse, the ideal personification of the madness and excess of the Jamaican dancehall from the 80s and 90s.
Jamaican multi-Grammy award-winners Morgan Heritage and France’s O.B.F. headline this Friday’s Main Stage, which also features Aza Lineage and Eek A Mouse. Dub Princess and Mighty Mystic add an international touch to the Lion Stage, which hosts a double choral offering with the collective Chill Mafia from Pamplona and Barcelona’s Balkan Paradise Orchestra.
The first stop was the birthplace of reggae at a crucial moment in the development of the music tradition that we love the most. It is customary this year for Jamaican roots& culture masters to perform first on the main stage. And last night it was the turn of the legendary Max Romeo to open the dance. At 77 years old, Max is one of the oldest Jamaican artists, and his numerous hits for various producers make him one of the most celebrated reggae artists of all times.
The Main Stage makes a double stop this Thursday in Jamaica and we add Max Romeo to our 2022 roots oriented line-up, alongside Fatoumata Diawara from Mali and Morodo from Madrid. Chilean sociologist and politician Daniel Jadue participates in the Social Forum session on the environmental and social cost of the Western food production system.
Due to the partial cancellation of the festival programming as a result of the strong winds, we want to let you know that the writstbands from Wednesday 17th August are valid for today, Thursday 18th August. You just need to show them at the entrance of the festival area.
