Benicassim, 2nd May 2014
Rototom Sunsplash is packing its bags to live what will certainly be its most international week. In just five days, 5 to 9 June, the biggest reggae festival in Europe will be present in four cities of the old continent to participate in as many major events related to music and culture.
Ibiza will be the first stop on this whirlwind Rototom Sunsplash tour. The iconic hippie market Las Dalias will host the new edition of the Launch Party on 5 June to present the line-up of the festival’s twenty-first edition with a great party. Antenna Libre ft. Jah Chango are in charge of opening the first big reggae summer party on the White Isle, which will start at 19.00 in the garden located inside the market. Special guests like Salsamuffin Sound System ft Sergeant Garcia & Supa Bassie will fill the magical moment with rhythm, strength and good vibes from dusk to dawn.
At 00.00 the party will move inside the legendary venue of Ibiza to the tunes of Eli Rojas (Ciudad Pacífico, Ibiza Sonica Radio), George Solar (Confy Dub), Selector Bogdan (Reggaelution), Sound Wisdom (Vibz Station) and the Mallorca Dubalistik Crew. Tickets for the whole event will cost ten euros.
6 to 9 June Rototom Sunsplash will also be present in Berlin. The reggae festival travels to German capital to participate in the Karneval der Kulturen, the event that year after year, pays tribute to all the cultures that make Berlin one of the most cosmopolitan cities on the planet. For three days Rototom Sunsplash will bring the most eclectic and international spirit of the festival to the streets of Berlin with its music. At the festival’s stand there will be concerts from the Thioune Brothers, Triad and Cafe’Touba.
The French city of Bordeaux is the next stop on this great tour of rhythm, multiculturalism and miscegenation. Rototom Sunsplash and the Reggae Sunska organizers arranged for 7 and 8 June a great free party to celebrate the final of the European Reggae Contest in style. The green, yellow and red will adorn the Rock School Barbey premises during an intense weekend dedicated to reggae music and the most ground-breaking riddims.
The live shows will be made available in collaboration with Party Time, via streaming on the webpage of Rototom Sunsplash, www.rototom.tv.
The Rototom Sunsplash tour ends in Iceland on June 7. Gamli Gaukurinn facilities in Reykjaavik will host a special Launch Party with a true luxurious line-up, which includes names like Rasta Ojba, Amaba Dama, ThizOne, T.Y. & Djásnið, RVK Soundsystem & Friends (Cell7, Kött Grá PJE and Bragi).
