The Jamaican Bares Hammond, the Ivorian Tiken Jah Fakoly and the tribute to Peter Tosh by his son Andrew, are the 3 final addition to the main stage for this edition.
From its humble beginnings in a small place in Italy, Rototom has grown to become the main European summer destination for reggae lovers. As the international festival reaches its 25th edition entitled “25 year walking together” has almost completed the musical puzzle, that every year brings together amazing artists from every part of the world.
These new additions are added to the line-up set for the festival’s 25th birthday party. The Main Stage will feature Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, with a show designed exclusively for the Rototom Sunsplash; Sly & Robbie with Yellowman, who will give his only concert in Spain at Benicàssim, Johnny Osbourne and Bitty McLean; and The Skatalites, featuring ska legend Derrick Morgan. They are also joined David Rodigan, who celebrates his 40 years in reggae will surprise the audience with an unusual concert: with special guests and a classical orchestra of 25 musicians with which he will tell the story of the Jamaican genre; and, of course, Alborosie and The Shengen Clan, who has prepared an exclusive concert surrounded by a special cast of artists to share their 25 year career with 25th anniversary of the event.
On the Main Stage, the festival will honour its birthplace with the special Italian Reggae All Stars meeting, comprising Africa Unite, Giuliano Palma, Raiz, Train to Roots, Nina Zilli, Michela Grena and Brusco.
Continuing the line up for main stage, there also be a wave of Jamaican legends such as Julian Marley, Cocoa Tea with Koffee, Jimmy Cliff, Protoje and The Indiggnation, Tarrus Riley and The Blaksoil Band, Kabaka Pyramid, the dancehall artist Konshens, and The Mighty Diamonds.
Representing international reggae will be the New Zealanders Fat Freddie's Drop, the progressive group of Californian Roots-Jazz Groundation and the Italians Mellow Mood. The fusion will be in the hands of the Cuban rap stars Orishas.
The presence of artists from the Spanish scene on the Main Stage is also guaranteed with Morodo, Green Valley and the Catalan trap/dancehall singer Bad Gyal.
