A friend of mine told me that his time at the California Roots Festival was some of the best days of his life. After hearing that from my friend and the artist line up, I knew I had to go. Before I get packed and go I figured I should do a little research on this epic event so I could get an idea on what I was getting into. The California Roots Festival 2016 is taking place on May 27-29th at the Monterrey Fairgrounds, and has won the hearts of thousands of reggae fans since 2010. Calling upon the music festivals of the sixties and seventies; the California Roots Festival is geared toward celebrating the human spirit and self-expression through the art of music.
With forty-five different live bands and performers playing over the course of three days, its a wonder how they can even pull off such a tall order. Headliners of the event include: Slightly Stoopid, Damian Marley, and Rebelution; along with Atmosphere, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Stephen Marley, The Expendables, and many others. While this is a music festival, the California Roots Fest offers much more than groovy tunes.
Attendees of the festival will munch on a variety of foods from all walks of life and quench themselves with craft beer from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. There will be an Art Retreat where festival goers will find relief from the energy of the concert and surround themselves with other medium of culture. Talent shows, live painting and pop-up performances will be offering up their talents throughout the festival; adding to an already long list of activities for your concert experience.
I have the privilege of representing Hail Mary Jane at the festival this year and I could not be more excited! Along with my photographer, I will be reporting on the all the sights and sounds that this year’s concert promises to its faithful fans. Stay tuned for more on CaliRoots 2016 coming after the festival, and as usual… stay elevated stoners and stonettes.
