Rototom 2019, is getting closer and we couldn't be happier, Rototom is home, the place where we always feel welcome and we can't wait to be there again this year.
We already knew the dates for this year's edition since the second we left the festival ended, which are from the 16th till the 22nd of august ; but now that we have also the first line up announcements everything feels more realistic.
We already have 23 artists who will bring the sound to the 26th edition of Rototom Sunsplash.
On the crest of this first announcement there are 3 Jamaican musical aces ; starting with Ziggy Marley, and joining him is the modern reggae crown Chronixx -with Rototom being his only date in Spain- and Busy Signal who has accompanied Major Lazer with his sharp verser and who will return to Benicassim after 5 years.
To follow on the main stage we have the legendary Israel Vibration, Queen Ifrica, Marcia Griffiths, Brinsley Forde & Dennis Bovell present Babylon Soundtrack, Iseo & Dodosound with The mousehunters and last but not least l' Entourloop ft Troy Berkley & N' zeng.
For the Lion Stage we have our favorite guys O.B.F. & The A1 crew ft Charlie P, Sr Wilson and Shanti D, The New York ska-jazz ensemble, Naaman, Lila Iké, Gentlesman's dub club, Marina P & Stand high patrol, Emeterians & Forward ever band, Tairo & The family band, Itaca band and Dub Ambassadors.
For concluding this first announcement Stylo G and Renaissace will take care of making us dance in the dancehall area and the Iration Steppas will make us dub till late in the dub area.
Let's say that this announcement was pretty HOT and of course made our week a bit nicer. And lets wait all together the next announcements.... ;)
