Rototom Sunsplash the 20th Love Edition
Rototom Sunsplash the 20th Love EditionThis year was Rototom Sunsplash’s 20th anniversary and it was called the Love Edition.
The festival vibes were present even before the festival officially started, a lot of people was allready in Benicassim a few days before. In that way you can see, how much this festival means to the people. One day before the prefestival, the parking was already filled with Rototom people. We saw everything from the start, because we got the first parking ticket this year :)
When the night fall, some people went to sleep in the line for tickets, so they could be the first ones in the festival.
Although they started giving tickets at 12:00, the place was allready full at 9 or 10 o’clock. At this point I would say, that 12:00 is really not the best hour for the begginig of the festival in the warm city of Benicassim. You can see how many people were waiting in the line to get tickets. Rototom really is the biggest reggae festival.
The first day of the festival really started in style as Third World opened the main stage. Although the original singer was not present, it was a great concert that started in daylight and ended at night.
There were many great artists, but the one that we missed was Anthony B, who was cancelled and Horace Andy replaced him. This is all for now, I will publish more info from the festival in the next days, so please stay tuned :)
