Rototom Reggae Festival History
This Reggae festival imitates the traditional Jamaican Reggae Sunsplash and since 1994 calls from various European countries thousands of reggae fans and followers - thanks to concerts of international musicians many from Jamaican. This is Europe's biggest Reggae Music festival and this is the first time it will take place in Spain. Until this year it has always taken place in Osoppo Udine in Italy. However there were lots of complaints that the festival brought too much marijuana to the location and a decision was taken to move the festival to Spain.
