California Roots Music and Arts Festival Finalizes Lineup

The 8th annual California Roots Music and Arts Festival that takes place at the historic Monterey County Fair and Event Center from May 26-28, 2017, announced its third and final round of artists completing their full lineup.

Adding to the already impressive lineup of Nas, Dirty Heads, SOJA, Iration, Stick Figure, Jurassic 5 and more, is the recently GRAMMY nominated Rebelution, Thievery Corporation, Matisyahu, and Collie Buddz. Melding well into the environmentally conscious and sustainable nature of the festival is Rising Appalachia, who recently announced “The Slow Music Movement” designed to “to create and promote sustainable touring practices across the board.” Rebelution frontman Eric Rachmany will have a busy weekend, as he will also be teaming up with Amp Live showcasing their Unified Highway project. Zach Deputy will also be adding his far-reaching talents and live looping abilities. Representing reggae on the east coast will be John Brown’s Body and Roots of Creation. Capping off the list is Beebs, LAW Records artist Darenots, LA-based Tyrone’s Jacket, and the Skank Roots Project, founded by DJ Skanks and Tribal Seeds’ E.N Young.

Three (3) day general advance tickets are currently on sale at http://californiarootsfestival.com/tickets and select Bay Area ticket outlets http://californiarootsfestival.com/ticket-outlets, with the availability of the 3 Day “Redwood Advance” passes.

With more art and announcements on the festival experience coming, we plan to embody the Monterey Pop Festival spirit as it celebrates its 50th anniversary,” states festival CoProducer Dan Sheehan.
