First artists for Rototom Sunsplash 2016 festival have been confirmed! Damian Marley stands out among the big names to perform on Main Stage this year. The Jamaican returns to Benicassim after his amazing concert in 2013 to present, in what will be his only concert in Spain, a completely new show. His enormous talent, versatility, and special capacity to understand reggae from new innovative perspectives, without forgetting tradition, have made Damian Marley, winner of several Grammy awards, one of the most internationally acclaimed contemporary artists.
Also performing in the next edition will be the veteran Jamaican artist Freddie McGregor, who will this time share the stage with two of his sons Stephen ‘Di Genious’ McGregor and Daniel ‘Chino’ McGregor. The ‘royal family of reggae’ Morgan Heritage, return once again to Benicassim, we will dance with Inner Circle and their greatest hits and we can enjoy the vocal harmonies of the Wailing Souls, one of the great harmonic trios in reggae history.
Junior Kelly, Kabaka Pyramid and Green Valley will present their latest works at the festival, while the Italians Sud Sound System will delight us once again with their particular mix of Salento and reggae.
New to Sunsplash are the English Gentleman’s Dub Club, who will present us with their original mix of dub, ska and roots reggae and the Anglo-Jamaican Randy Valentine, an artist who hasn’t stopped rising since his debut in 2005.
New confirmations coming soon. Stay tuned!
