At Rototom Sunsplash we continue to work towards the dates of our 27th edition, from August 16 to 22, 2020 in Benicàssim. Production is in progress as planned: truth be told we are working on a memorable edition, to bring everyone together for a week of music, culture, commitment and family.
We do so without losing touch with reality. A changing reality full of unknowns.
Therefore, with so many months to go to Rototom Sunsplash 2020, it would be unethical for us to declare with certainty that our festival will be held in Benicàssim. It would be pure speculation on our behalf, something that we want to avoid, because as the complex health emergency caused by COVID-19 is proving, speculation does nothing but harm.
We cling to the few certainties that the current context offers us, and to the fact that with the collective efforts of everyone, we can overcome anything. We are also empowered by the theme chosen for this our 27th adventure:We can change the world. The truth is that it is an idea that has influenced our entire history, which permeates the philosophy of our festival and that acts as a motor in each edition, and the current circumstances have made us put it into practice with more momentum than ever.
This is because yes, we truly can change things, even reality itself, the very one that acts as a mirror exposing our vulnerabilities: the reflection on the other side shows us what we can be. We can change it by doing our part of the deal, as a gesture of solidarity with others, of social co-responsibility and as a step towards that vital balance that all of us long achieve.
So, let’s take care of ourselves. Let’s take care of those around us, by following the guidelines without alarmism but without underestimating the seriousness of the situation. Take time to reflect, and let this parenthesis in our vital routines and the incessant nature of our daily life as an opportunity, to breathe and reinforce our desire to change the world. Face the future without fear.
See you soon, family
