Sun, sea, sand and reggae. The Rototom extends its arm to the beaches at Torre San Vicente and Heliópolis in Benicàssim and to the Gurugú beach in the Grao of Castellón. Because the Reggae for Freedom can also be enjoyed on the beach.
The SunBeach areas are much more than a place on the beach. Different sound systems season the mornings and afternoons of the SunBeach in Benicàssim, making it the perfect snack for each day. It is the right opportunity to recharge batteries for some or to start partying for others.
With its own programme, the SunBeach, which moves from one beach to the other during the eight-day festival, welcomes everyone (crowd from the Rototom or not) inviting to dance to the rythm of the different masterclasses, as the dancehall classes that serve as the perfect pre-exercise to then explode in the Dancehall scene. You can also be carried away by the proposals of each of the sound systems showcasing in the sand.
And while the SunBeach turns into a mini Rototom by the sea, the Gurugú beach has its own life. Solé Rototom Beach is the one to blame, which is the beach bar owned by the festival in Grao, Castellón, that during the summer months and the festival schedules different sound systems every afternoon. In addition, the Solé Rototom this year celebrates the 1st Beach Volleyball Tournament.
Because we already knew that the Rototom Sunsplash is much more than a music festival.
