It’s APR-20 and springtime is in the air…among other things. This time of year and this day in particular excites me because I know something very special is just around the corner. That’s right, the California Roots Music and Arts Festival will be here before you know it!
The festival invades the historic Monterey County Fairgrounds for its 7th year over Memorial Day weekend, Friday MAY-27 through Sunday MAY-29. My favorite weekend of the year boasts over 45 musical artists over three days and three stages, not to mention innumerable artists and vendors bringing their craft to the central coast.

This year’s lineup is the best in recent memory returning three veteran headliners; Slightly Stoopid [Friday], Damian Marley [Saturday] and personal favorite Rebelution closing things out on Sunday night! This lineup by no means is top heavy, also returning fan favorites J-Boog, The Expendables and Stick Figure. We also have first timers with hip hop vets Atmosphere, the Hawaiian siren Eli-Mac, and dance hall reggae powerhouse Protoje.
