Our event celebrates 25 years of existence, with 3.2 millions of festivalgoers and more than 2,300 artists along the way: from the Italian Alps to the Mediterranean Sea in Benicàssim
“Once upon a time, there was a little reggae festival in Italy, called Rototom Sunsplash. Nowadays in Benicàssim, Spain, there is a great reggae festival called Rototom Sunsplash”. These are the words of the artist Alborosie, which he pronounced on stage in August, 2010, for the first edition of our festival in Spain after its relocation from the Italian city of Osoppo. They retrace the evolution of our event. The greatest European reggae festival.
2010 was a turning point, full of unknown things and eight years later, are not anymore and have become memories and facts that are more good than bad. The years were in favour of the experience Rototom Sunsplash, bringing us straight to the celebration of our first quarter-century of existence.
Twenty-five years of existence that has been able to unite, through reggae and its philosophy, 3.2 million people from the five continents throughout the different editions, which is the equivalent of the population of Madrid or Berlin, and to bring more than 2.300 artists. The next ones will be added to the most historic line-up, from 16th to 22nd of August, under the motto 25 years walking together.Our History
