The Rootwire Festival, returning to Kaeppner’s Woods in Logan, Ohio August 15-18, announced today a second round of performers, presenters and visual artists for its fourth annual event. More than simply a ‘music festival’, Rootwire is a multi-day event that envelops those in attendance in a cascading flow of artistic expression from live music to painting, installation to performance art, presentations, workshops, ceremony and more.Additions to the Rootwire experience include Dirtwire featuring David Satori of Beats Antique, speaker John Perry Barlow (lyricist for the Grateful Dead/String Cheese Incident and founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation).The heart and soul of Papadosio’s artistic expression, Rootwire is an expedition into light, nature, sound, community and healing awaits all those in attendance. A multi-media representation of the event is well-defined in this online video:“Ask anyone who has been to Rootwire and they will tell you it is so much more than another fill in the blank music festival. It has been designed with you and your personal experience and growth in mind,” says Anthony Thogmartin, guitarist/vocalist in Papadosio. “We hope that you will come share in our celebration of life; that you will take something with you, so that well after the festival is over and months have passed, what was created together in the humble hills of Ohio will continue to bring you joy and inspiration along your path.”Since its inception in 2010, Rootwire has grown to be one of the premier live music and arts events in the Midwest – and is the on-going creative project of the nationally touring electronic/rock syndicate Papadosio. Well known for their relentless touring schedule, mindful melodies and transcendent tracks, Papadosio has become one of the major acts today seeking to reshape and transform the music festival landscape. Through their own eyes and ears, they have witnessed miracles and mishaps of festival culture alike and threw the first Rootwire as a way to create and practice their model for an ideal gathering. Every year since, the line-up and scope of the festival has grown, culminating in the critically acclaimed RW2K12, easily the most exciting and elegant Rootwire to date.  New Music AdditionsDirtwire (feat.
