The 9th annual California Roots Music and Arts Festival has announced their second round of artists. Joining an already impressive lineup is the Grammy nominees Rebelution, Hawaiian reggae ambassadors The Green, singer/songwriter Trevor Hall, Cali Roots favorite Fortunate Youth, island soulstress Anuhea, and alternative reggae band The Movement. Making his Cali Roots debut performance is underground hip hop hero Brother Ali, fresh from his critically-acclaimed album All The Beauty In This Whole Life. Day by day lineup has also been partially announced with more confirmations to come.
Cali Roots is also hot on the heels of two awards. Most recently, the “California Roots Festival theme song” produced by Bulldog media, was presented with the “Viewers Choice Award” by TasteTV’s California Music Awards. In addition, California Roots is also being recognized for their greening initiatives. Stemming from their Redwood pass and other environmental partnerships, Cali Roots has been officially nominated for the 2017 “Outstanding Social Impact” award at the FestX Awards, taking place in Las Vegas, NV during the XLive Conference.
“We are extremely proud of the California Roots community that we’ve built throughout the years and are humbled with the recognition and awards we’ve been receiving,” says festival CoProducer Dan Sheehan. “Every year we work on bringing the best talent coupled with a unique experience that we continue to evolve and refine with feedback from our fans.”
