While last month it was revealed that Papadosio has parted ways with the Rootwire Music And
Arts Festival, we knew the event would proceed. Today, Rootwire organizers announced
the first round lineup for this year's event - which takes place at Sunshine Daydream
Memorial Park in Terra Alta, WV from July 17 - 20.
Rootwire attendees will be treated to a Shpongle DJ set from Simon Posford, two full
shows from Beats Antique and performances from Conspirator and EOTO,
among the many sets scheduled for the festival. Zilla, Cosby Sweater and
Killowatts are also on board for Rootwire 2014.
Event organizers promise "four full days of transformational music, art, workshops and
love" spread across Rootwire's four stages. Tickets for Rootwire are available via Eventbrite.
