Hey y'all :) I would like to set my mind on top reggae festivals organized in Europe in my next posts. Today I want to present the biggest one- Rototom Reggae Sunsplash which takes place in Benicassim, Spain from August 12th to August 19th. This edition is dedicated Africa and its ancestral culture. Furthermore, everyone will have a chance to find something for them selves because there will be 10 musical areas composed of Main Stage, Lion Stage, African Village, DanceHall, Dub Academy, Roots Yard, Jumping, Carribean Uptempo, Riddim Club and Sun Beach. What is important, the festival organizes also cultural events and lectures in which some popular artists are involved. These cultural areas as Social Forum or Reggae University where we can reflect freely on how to bulid a better world but also learn more about reggae culture and history. And something what plays a huge role in my life- food. You can find there many different cuisines from Jamaican to African, from vegan to vegeterian so everyone can find their favourite one, not only junk food. Coming back to the line up. This year you can see, as always, some top reggae/dancehall artists like Gentelman, Ky-Mani Marley, Steel Pulse, Christopher Martin, Luciano, U-Roy, Mad Professor or Don Carlos. Of course, female artists as Treesha, Nathalie Rize, Nadine Sutherland or Nkulee Dube can't be missed. For more information you can visit the official website of the festival: http://www.rototomsunsplash.com/
I'm a big fan of that kind of experience, good music, food, sunshine and dance.. Ah.. The real world stops existing and we can get out of the reality for a moment!
Bless up. Paula
