Rototom Sunsplash always organizes an interesting lineup that speaks to the breadth and diversity of reggae culture. This year’s edition is no different. The talent roster—Major Lazer, Bunny Wailer, SOJA, Capleton, Barrington Levy, Popcaan, Jah Cure, Cham, Protoje, Bad Manners, Hollie Cook and, making his first-ever appearance in Europe, Super Cat—speaks for itself. More than anything else, though, it’s the many cultural components of Rototom—art symposiums, sustainability programs, yoga workshops—that truly put it at the forefront of reggae fests.
