The Serbian band Irie FM wins the overall European finals of the Rototom Reggae Contest in Italy and enters the line-up of Rototom Sunsplash 2012.
The Serbian Band is the first band from Eastern Europe ever to win the Reggae Contest, much celebrated within the European reggae scene. Chalwa Band & King Konsul from Spain, Arrokibi Roots from Italy, Sundyata from France, Ital Audio Band from the UK and Sattatree from Germany were the other finalists of the 10th edition yearly competition.
The reggae-dub style of Irie FM, who had already entered the finals last year, convinced both audience and judges. The band will tour the main European reggae festivals, including Rototom Sunsplash.
