ROTOTOM SUNSPLASH Spain 16-22 August 22

The project will be carried out in collaboration with Tuawa+Global Omnium, a benchmark in the decarbonisation of the tourism sector, and verification will be issued by Aenor, the Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification.

Rototom Sunsplash will be the first festival in Spain to obtain a COemissions certificate that verifies its carbon footprint in order to mitigate and reverse its impact on the environment.

Through Tuawa, the festival has tasked Global Omnium, a reference in the decarbonisation of the tourism sector and manager, among others, of the Oceanográfico in Valencia and the Seville Aquarium, to draw up and implement a carbon neutrality project that includes the analysis of its energy consumption levels and the location and measurement of its emission sources.

Through the collection of primary data, the calculation of the emissions ceiling and other real-time measurements, a validated CO2 compliance certificate recognised by Aenor, the Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification, will be obtained.

The idea is to measure the real impact of the festival’s activity on the environment, to see what the carbon footprint is, in order to be able to convert it into actions with a positive impact. Thus, through a team of 15 professionals, all the activities necessary to hold the festival will be monitored, from the design and planning of the edition to the dismantling phase of the infrastructure.

With the added bonus of measuring its carbon footprint, Rototom Sunsplash faces a new edition as a ‘plastic free’ festival, without single use water bottles, but with more fountains and water refilling booths, with the logistical collaboration and participation of Tuawa  +Global Omnium Group and Ecozona Iberian. Furthermore the festival is once again advocating its system of reusable cups for social purposes. This year all the proceeds from the cups will go to the Conquistando Escalones Association – founded by people affected by 1F-D2 Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy, caused by a mutation that makes them immune to HIV – together with CASDA (Citizens’ Association against AIDS in Castelló).

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
