California Roots Festival Tickets
California Roots Festival TicketsThe California Roots Music and Arts Festival, also known as Cali Roots, is an annual event featuring several live performances by various artists across several musical genres. Because art installations are also part of the overall experience, patrons may also see live painting going on at the same time. The Cali Roots Festival began in 2010 as a single-day event, but due to popularity and recognition, it has grown into a three-day weekend experience attended by thousands of interested fans. The California Roots Festival has become one of the largest public events for reggae music in the US although other genres are also present.
The Root of the FestivalThe festival has the distinction of being held at the same fairgrounds that provided the venue for the pop music festival where Jimi Hendrix famously set his guitar aflame. Both Tribal Seeds and Dirty Heads took to the stage to headline the inaugural version of the California Roots Festival. The modest beginnings of the festival grew into what is now a Memorial Day weekend bash that includes many bands and some artists setting up installations to add to the overall atmosphere of the experience.

What is the layout of the California Roots Music Festival?When it began in 2010, Cali Roots had several outdoors stages as part of the fairgrounds. Multiple bands could play shows for fans simultaneously. Those stages are still around today, but festival management added a new area in 2013 called the Bowl. The Bowl is a special outdoor arena that increased the available patron capacity by several thousand and gave artists and performers a larger area in which to play.
What other things can I experience at California Roots?Many fans come to hear the great live music, but Cali Roots is an entire experience with lots of other things to see or do. You'll be able to relax and chill between awesome setlists thanks to some guided yoga. In addition, there will be an art retreat to view some of the work from great local painters and a workshop where you can learn the basics of painting yourself, too. Craft vendors will sell their wares, and food or drink options will be available throughout the fairgrounds.
