Chill, groove, and immerse yourself in reggae culture at this year’s Rototom Sunsplash.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, this festival celebrates the lifestyle of peace, tolerance, respect and great music. If you don’t mind getting a little dirty – and experimental – then make your way to the Spanish coast with the rest of the Rastas.
Why: The festival is now two decades old and is more-or-less a celebration of the reggae lifestyle’s rags to riches story. Damian Marley is headlining the music line-up and Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú will be giving a talk at the public forum on personal and social change.
Do it because: Not many fest-goers can say they became better people after a weekend at a music festival – usually, it’s quite the opposite. Rototom Sunsplash offers a true fest experience with a great message. Plus, Castellon is beautiful this time of year.
