Spring 2018




On August 16, 2018, European Reggae Festival, Rototom Sunsplash, will celebrate its 25th Anniversary with an amazing lineup of reggae artists representing the four corners of the world and IRIE Magazine will be there.

Founded in 1991 by four individuals, Rototom Sunsplash has become the best reggae festival in Europe. It is a week-long reggae extravaganza that celebrates reggae and the culture that surrounds it.

Think of it as a one-week escapism from ‘Babylon’, where the largest diverse crowd of reggae fans come together from all over the world to experience one week of reggae music, culture, peace and unity. Rototom Sunsplash is a lifestyle that represents ‘One Love’, the universal love and respect for all people.

What makes the Rototom Sunsplash experience truly special and unique is the festival’s consistency in putting together an extraordinary lineup of reggae artists from the legends and veterans to the new generation of artists ready to stake their claim in the reggae scene.
