dasThe festival relocated to Benicassim in 2010
Spain - Being held for the past decade in Spain, one of the largest annual reggae festivals in Europe has been on the map for 26 years. The festival took place from the 16-22 August and for the seventh consecutive year, it employed DAS Audio systems on the Main Stage.
The International Rototom Sunsplash festival has already established a solid foundation in the town of Benicassim, after its relocation from Italy in 2010. In its 10th anniversary in Spain, it has managed to attract 202,000 people from 76 countries during seven days in a celebration not only of reggae music, but also of cultural events with almost 140 extra-musical activities.
The festival stands out for welcoming families and for promoting inclusion, social justice, solidarity and sustainability, practices that have made it one of the largest alternative festivals on the continent. Rototom Sunsplash was recognised by UNESCO as an exemplary event for its work promoting the culture of peace and non-violence.
During the 2019 edition, festivalgoers enjoyed up to 120 musical acts. Audioprobe was tasked with supplying and deploying the sound systems throughout the festival. The Aero-50 and the UX subwoofers were the chosen systems for the Main Stage.
The objective was to achieve outstanding sound delivering all the power and low frequency range that reggae music requires. The choice of subwoofers was critical. With this in mind, Audioprobe deployed 16 Aero-50 per side and 30 UX-221A subwoofers in an LCR configuration to minimize comb-filtering effects and distribute the power evenly.
This year’s performers included Macaco, Chronixx, Ziggy Marley, Green Valley & Friends, Marcia Griffiths, Morgan Heritage, Queen Ifrica, and JAH9.
