Rototom Sunsplash has won the award for Best Social Action in the V edition of Premios Fest awards, held this Wednesday in the framework of BIME Live, in Bilbao. It is an award that recognizes the social commitment of our festival on our 25th anniversary, last August in Benicàssim. When we promoted and developed together with our non-profit organization Exodus, a solidarity campaign to help Proactiva Open Arms to continue saving lives in the Mediterranean. All of which was made possible by our reusable cup system, and related the donations were dedicated to the NGO.
The Premios Fest is the only event in Spain that acknowledges the work of music festivals, and they aim to encourage their quality and value the work that they do.
