Rototom Sunsplash is one of the most award-winning festivals in the Fest Awards. It has won three awards- the most sustainable festival, the best camping area and the best side events during the festival – in this 3rd edition of the Fest Awards.
The ceremony took place in Campos Eliseos Theater in Bilbao in which the best music Spanish festivals were awarded. Rototom Sunsplash got more awards than Vida Festival, which got only two awards and failed to win the reggae festival.
However, this reggae festival was the only one who got awarded by the Fest Awards, so the other two music festivals in Benicassim – Formigues and Benicàssim Blues Festival- did not have the same luck, so Rototom Sunsplash has been acknowledged by people in the Fest Awards and has been considered one of the best music festivals.
