Building on the outstanding success of its inaugural year, ROTHBURY once again harnesses the unique 21st century American festival spirit to create an event unlike any other. With music at its core, ROTHBURY continues its mission to create a state-of-the-art large scale sustainable event and to organize and nurture community involvement that makes a difference. ROTHBURY is a huge party with a purpose.

ROTHBURY's bold social and environmental mission continues to manifest in 2009, building on last year's topic of Climate Change and Clean Energy Solutions. Within the festival, look for expanded ROTHBURY Think Tank activities and even more cutting-edge festival implementation of ever-changing technologies in the quest for energy independence. Beyond the festival, via innovative community projects and local partnerships, ROTHBURY 09 offers increased involvement opportunities to make a positive impact locally, nationally, and globally.

As ROTHBURY Producer Jeremy Stein explains, "ROTHBURY is proud to host a community of conscious and involved fans who strive for a better future. We're also extremely grateful for the support of our local neighbors and the greater Michigan community. Together - we're raising the bar."

Indeed, such unparalleled community support and involvement led to huge successes for ROTHBURY's 2008 philanthropic programs and on-site environmental festival initiatives. Such initiatives included ROTHBURY's Music in Schools Program, ROTHBURY's Solar Schools Program, the ROTHBURY Food Drive and The Conscious Alliance Can Sculpture, and ROTHBURY's Greening and Sustainability Initiatives.

idk id sayyyy its fairly unique... Some quality hip hop (not that its really my thing but theres deeper hip hop than j5 or the roots) yes string cheese and string cheese getting the headlining spot at a major fest (not every day) ya got several reggae bands, (festivals find it difficult to schedule more than one reggae band it seems, but toots rebolution and giant panda, all quality stuff (add groundation, jbb and were all set))

...i continue... Flogging molly, theres an alternative band that you can still boogie down with that ya dont see too often, I meen fuck we may have the chance to see dylan on stage with the dead, thats pretty unique there ya?

Seems like some quality actS in the afro beat scene. Not so rare to see one but 3 or more is pretty solid... Anyway i feel its deffintly distinguishable from the rest even without the ole' timers...

and for the folks ready to rip on dylan as part of the line up, get real...

No his performance isnt anything too good, its fucking dylan. And if nothing else, he'll help the other bands be reminded to cover his songs during their sets. Anyway dylan belongs just about anywhere he gets invited

WoW, bring on The Glitch Mob and Shpongle, are you kidding me! this is gonna be another crazy 4th of July on the ranch. I still have my wristband from last year on, summer couldn't come any sooner. Shocking to see the Cheese though, I thought there first shows back would be at Horning's because frankly thats what should be happening.

brucebruce I have my wristband from last year on still too, and with this ill lineup (CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE) there will be a 2009 one joining it! btw, at string cheeses first show in two years I mean keller williams pretty much has to be there right? I found it surprising to see droll, mosely, and sipe all playing together, but no keller to speak of yet... maybe theyll surprise us with a late addition of some keller, and since rothbury has made one dream come true in the dead, maybe another one in some keller williams incident is on the way...?

What gets me most about this lineup is the diversity. Once again there's good quality hip hop, jam bands and electronica. CHEESE back together, NAS as a headliner spot is huge, STS9 and BISCO to destroy two late night spots, chromeo, mstrkrft, shpongle to keep us moving, and THE DEAD... well, that just goes without saying, The DEAD!!!!! Going to be another great 4th of July weekend lets rage!

Not as good as last years lineup... although it is pretty stellar....but Bob Dylan headlining with willie nelson? That is kinda boring to be honest, I dig both of these legends and I would want to see them... but the Dead is where its at.... I'll go if the Dead headline at least 3 nights, if not, I will pass on the $300 ticket and go to 10klf this year, which to me, looks better...

Dr. Funkenstein

nice lineup. as bonnaroo continues to push the boundaries of what their festival can be, booking increasingly more and more indie and art rock bands - the ones really changing the face of modern music - rothbury hits another demographic by putting together tons of really legit old schoolers and hippie favorites. it's nice to see that there's room for both.

but having said that, i'll be at 'roo ;)

This is a great line up, Bob Dylan and the Dead at the same venue is worth it alone. Glad to see Cheese will play too. Not sure why so many fans want to criticize this band? I like Cheese, and a lot of other bands too, there are a lot I don't really care for, but will refrain from negative comments, I'm sure a lot of you do dig it. I'm really struck by the negativity of some of these post. Be glad you live in America and are free, what more could you want? Keep jamming.

I know both Willie and Bob D. are legends but after all this time and hype, how exciting is it really? If your not a Cheese fan, which I know a lot of us aren't (and for good reason) and your not big on the electronica-jam stuff. All that is left is The Dead and some top quality bluegrass and Hip Hop.

I LOVE THIS LINE-UP!!!!!!! I'm also thinking Dylan is going to play before the Dead, so now I'm curious to see who the other big headliner will be. The late night this year will be SICK!!!!!! As for no Phish (so far), don't forget, they didn't announce Trey last year (as well as a few other killer acts) until about a month before the festival, but hey, even if they don't get added, I still love this line-up.

I bet there will be some big name additions.... Rothbury last year was a ton of fun and I think everyone should go... but for me, this line-up just isn't enough for me to try to take that time off of work and spend like $1000 to get there and food and everything... but I think if it works for you, absolutely do it!

Quit bashing Dylan. Dude is old and doesn't have the pipes anymore. You can't deny his influence on so many other bands, let alone a whole generation of music fans, and I'm sure his band will be top notch as always. It's his band that you go to see these days because they're smoking. Hence, Bob Dylan has been touring under the moniker "Bob Dylan and His Band" for awhile now.

The headliners are the best across the board of any festival this year. The rest of the lineup I'm not 100% sold on. I think they did a great job of getting a diverse mix of bands, but it just didn't hit my specific tastes. Not a big Black Crowes fan. Not a big jamtronic fan. The headliners would be enough to get me there, but $300 is a bit steep. Yeah Bonnaroo is almost that much, but I'm not going to Bonnaroo either (and they have Phish). I love String Cheese, but it is kinda like hey we couldn't get a reunited Phish so here is a reunited SCI, for those that didn't know they didn't tour last year. I guess that means they were never going to play together ever again. The question should be is Nershi going to play with them.

I'm seriously freakin out here waitin for some official news on SCI. Is billy on board for this? will there be more shows? a rothbury SCI reunion will be sweet but its not what I was hoping for... (hornings, zoe, redrocks, terra alta) It really seems like this was just some of the agents at madison house convincing cheese to do this show, smart from that perspective though as i am 10x mores likely to make the journey for this. I would really really rather see cheese at a cheese fest with the best scene around rather that at ginormous kinda corporate rothbury. Just hoping for some more cheese dates right now, please?

GLITCH MOB is Blowin Up!!! Everyone will come back raving about these guys (all 4 members of the Glitch Mob is not to be missed)...

+ Femi Kuti, Toubab Krewe, SCI, not bad....but not as good as last year (in my opinion)....however, this is still the best fest of the larger ones...

on the negative aspect, there sure is a lot of bands that suck on this lineup...

To all you naysayers... fuck that noise. The hip hop selection at this festival is absolutely stellar. When nas feels like putting on a good show, its epic. Saw him at rock the bells last year and it blew me away. And yes, dylan is old, but seeing him at a festival with the remaining members of the grateful dead and Willie Nelson? There's something seriously special about that. Top that all of with String Cheese, another STS9 late night, biscuits, MORE BANDS TO COME and Sherwood forest? This festival pushes boundaries once again. The Electronic seen here will be better than anywhere else in North America.

I really wanted to see David Byrne. I can't decide. For all of those who don't already have bonnaroo tickets or live in Michigan, which festi would you go too? I am not a huge Phish fan, but I have never gotten a chance to see them. I have definitely seen my share of SCI, but it is so tempting to stick to my guns. I would rather see the Dead than the Boss.

Wow I think Bnaylor lost all credibility when he said Nas blows and the Beastie Boys are real hip hop. Don't get me wrong, I like the Beastie Boys, but Nas has a lot more substance to his lyrics, that's for sure. Why don't you get a job and not spend your whole monday morning ripping on this amazing lineup. If you think you can put a better one together why don't you become a promoter yourself? I am so glad a negative loser like yourself will not be at this festival. You're the one who doesn't sound like a music lover, you sound like a whiny little nerd who likes to talk trash on message boards to make your pathetic life worthwhile. See all my cool peeps at Rothbury, this is one for the books.

I have no idea why this costs $300 but the fact that SCI is involved is no surprise. I heard Fishman was once quoted to have called SCI the Star-bucks of the Jam scene. I can't help but be negative towards them, I thought there were gone now they pop up for this bull-shit one time summer appearance and all these kids are begging for more. Sorry but I've always found them boring and very derivative. (I also feel the same way about Umph)

Beastie Boys were great........15 years ago. I mean, really, your talking about 3 old men in thier late 40's rapping. Take Phish out of the Roo line-up, and it's really not too great, a few good acts, but more or less the same shit as last year. This Rothbury Line-up is already the best festival announcement so far this year, and they still have acts to add! If your gonna hate on Rothbury, then please don't attend (i'm doing the same for Bonnaroo, minus Phish, I think the Roo lineup sucks, so I won't be there). BURY BURY BURY!!!!!!!!!

I completely understand and I often defend the justification of $300 for a ticket b/c it boils down to $15 a show for amazing sets...but now that we are nose deep in a depression and I am outta a job...tickets should remain $229 (early bird). If things were different...!

Decent lineup but for the price I'd rather go to ANY other festival for about $100 less and see maybe all but one or two of those bands. Cheese will be awesome, however I think Rothbury gives themselves too much credit and thinks that they are a better festival then they are. The only other festival that has tickets close to this price is bonnaroo (which I will never go to now). If I was going to spend this much money on a ticket I would've been at Hampton last week!

I don't understand why people complain about bands. That's the best part of festivals, if you don't want to see the band playing at that time you don't have to! Don't get on here and bash musicians who are playing the music that they are passionate about just because YOU don't like it. Most of the bands could care less if you like it or not. And I agree with gratefuldank besides the dead and cheese, none of these bands are $300 bands. Then again not many are, and I would argue to say that the dead and cheese aren't $300 bands either. These festivals are way too over priced and they people are just in it for the money. Fuck that it's about the music and the people, not money!

been anxiously awaiting this one and glad to see the lineup not disappoint. so far, pretty comparable to last year aside from the cheese addition, but they could have a whole bunch more up their sleeve to add in the future. gonna be rather difficult to pass this up, but yea, the question does remain: will there be as much magic as there was in its very first year?

I think keller williams should get down and on top of an sci set there should be a keller williams incident set as well... maybe late night

also for everyone who is confused. Cheese is not back for good. As much as I would love to see this be true if you go to their website it says right on the homepage that Rothbury will be the only SCI incident of 2009. They'll be back soon, hopefully for good!

I honestly didn't know how they were gonna top last year. Last year had the sickest festival lineup I've ever seen, But they out did themselves. What the fuck. Cheese outa the dust, headlining alongside the dead? There are way too many GREAT jambands to not expect some wicked colaborations. And any neigh-sayers ... SCI aint SCI without billy. he'll be there. they all miss us more than we miss them, just wait. the only question remaining is ... how are they gonna top this next year? ROTHBURY 2010!!!

Honestly, The Dead are responsible for Phish, albeit it is not the original lineup of the Dead, that band and what it represents means more to me than any fucking Phish every will Phish wouldn't exisist most likely had it not been for "the Dead" so all you whiney little bitches who already bought "'Roo" tickets or live too far away go fuck yourselves. Dylan + Nelson + Dead Set? or at least Dylan and the Dead hopefully... Rothbury latenight with Pretty Lights and Glitch Mob alone will be fucking sickening. Hopefully Ween, David B, Thievery, or MMJ will jump on Roth as well. See you in Sherwood.

Well, first of all, UMPH is playing. Hate that I'm always the one that has to fill you in on htese things. They won't announce it till after a bunch of summercamp tix are sold. Maybe MOE, too. And if Cheese, lotus, Railroad, and Umph are there Then we should see Keller, Karl D, JJ grey, and maybe pnuma trio and bassnectar.

Secondly, whats with all the hate. If you don't like it, don't go, this is supposed to be about good times. Plus this is still first additions.

Third, Break it down, think about how much a ticket would cost to see Dead, Dylan, Cheese, Willie, Sphongle, Bisco, STS9x2, Damien Marley and Nas, and GLitch Mob. That should more than equal your $250, plus you can camp there and so much other music. Yonder, Claypool, Govt. Mule, toots, ralph stanley, Peter Rowan, toubab, ect...

As of yet, Bonerzoo maybe a little better line-up, but I'd prefer to be able to go out in the sun during the day and not be worried about my girl roaming around at night. I'll catch phish at some other shows.

I have been to every roo(arrived thur and left monday except last year when only went for one day/night) and roth last year...im driving 12 hours(to roth) instead of 30 min(to roo). But i am going to see phish at deer creek so i get my phish taste without that roo stink.

I dont want to hate on roo...it seriously changed my life and will stay in my soul for the rest of my life. Roo has improved greatly over last year...but not enough for me.

I am sure they will add a few more big names as well as some small ones, but this is behind roo a little bit. They have only had one before this and this is a promising start for a good festival. Its just like broo. roo made the festival scene what it is today, and it should be known.

I like a good Phish show, (Hell, I like a bad Phish show too!), but the Dead ALWAYS take precedence! I think most of the bands playing the festival circuit would agree. They acknowledge and respect the guys that paved the road they travel. I just wish Phish and The Dead played the same festie, so they could collaborate. I still say the best Phil & Friends included Trey and Page.

SMOKEY- I wouldn't say it's a flop, actually, I think the SCI reunion will be cool, but the depth of the lineup is what got me. I think this is a stronger overall lineup than they had last year, as far as getting past the headliners. I already heard the Umph is getting added, as well as rumors of Justice playing as well (they cancelled last year, as well as gogol bordello). I mean the Dead, Bisco, STS9, Crowes, Dylan, as well as some great new bands like Futurerock. I don't know, I guess you feel the same way about Roth in regard to SCI as I do as far as Phish to Bonnaroo. Anyhow, I'll be back at Rothbury, and I can't wait to see who else gets added. my wish list...Phish, Buju Banton, Drag the River and LCD soundsystem.

I can't believe I ever put this festival down, I thought last year's Dave Matthews/Mayer/311 looked a little off, but this festival line-up looks ridiculously sick! The venue looks great! The late night will be sick for sure. I'm sure Dylan/Dead/Nelson altogether. Roo will be fun, but shit this looks like it'll be just as much fun maybe even a little better. Even a little SCI reunion, I'm not a big fan of them, but still, The Dead at a festival is going to be a rockin PARTY!

In my humble opinion, Voltaroo has a line-up that satisfies my diverse musical tastes, while Rothballs is probably my favorite venue, jam packed with good peeps and family (not to mention a fucking SICK initial line-up as well) The Roth. vs. Roo debate is pointless, save pennies, sell your belongings and go to both!!!!

Chidoger- I would be fucking stoked if phish came to this festival, but im not banking on it. 250 is a great deal- If the dead play 2 shows that would be the equivelant of 200$ on tickets if you were to see them on ter... plus 50+ other bands. Its a lot of money, but it is absolutely worth it if you can go. ill line up, so deep, so eclectic. Bring the UMPH and bring some more quality hip hop bring some moe.

If you have not seen him, then just go there with an open mind, he is getting old but he has more fun up there playing for us then we have listening to him. He is a legend, but dont expect him to be anything like he used to, and I would not be surprised to see him sit in with the Dead. He might have a couple tricks up his sleeve this year.

Ok I just want to know if it is just me that thinks the Dead are being rather sacreligious in not going to GOTV this year? Seriously this festival was made in honor of Jerry's death and they can't even hit that up? Not to mention the 100$ tickets on their tour...I dare not say anymore because I listen to the Grateful dead eveyday and love them, but Jerry is rolling over in his Grave.... All of them are very well off...
