As most of you can imagine, life for a touring band is never easy. From late nights to creative fights, there's a reason why only so many bands withstand the challenges of being on the road whilst maintaining a personal sense of freedom. We, Papadosio, created the Rootwire Music & Arts Festival in an attempt to paint on our own canvas.
If summertime is the only time you make it to a killer music festival, you must not be from Colorado. Us cold-blooded mountain people could care less about below freezing temperatures and blustering blizzards. Live music is the lifeblood of Colorado’s thriving entertainment industry and the people want it all year round. Maybe one year somebody would be brave enough to host a winter camping festival, but for now, we have a few awesome concepts that are making the dead of winter a time to party at desirable festival grounds and see our favorite bands throw down a hootenanny.
