More Than Twenty. A dream come true called Rototom Sunsplash Image

by Contributed

A small group united by deep passions. Much suffering, little money, so much music. The Italian region. A great challenge!




The Rototom association was born in 1991 out of a meeting between four people. Since then the entity has managed two nightclubs, hundreds of concerts, squatted an abandoned factory to create a cultural centre, organized marches for peace, and created the biggest reggae festival in the world, the Rototom Sunsplash that celebrated its twentieth edition in 2013.


From the beginning they faced many difficulties and had to struggle to keep the project alive. In the end they even had to leave Italy, emigrating to Spain. Today, 20 years on, Rototom explains its birth, the decisions that were made, the paths taken, the difficulties faced and the successes achieved, because the future is yet to be built.

The memories of the organizers, the people who knew the festival in Italy and many artists, are combined with the reflections of some of the biggest organizers of major Italian music events. This all serves to build a story, influenced by individual and collective decisions, predominated by the Italian cultural and political scenes.
