The 8th annual California Roots Music and Arts Festival will be held at Monterey County Fair and Event Center in Monterey, California on May 26 – 28, 2017. Organizers have revealed the first round of reggae and roots rock performers making up the lineup for next year’s Memorial Day Weekend event.
Among those confirmed for the 2017 fest are Dirty Heads, Jurassic 5, Common Kings, Alborosie, Anthony B and Jesse Royal, as well as several others. Two additional rounds of artists are expected to be added to the lineup in the coming months.
“We are excited to announce our first round of the 2017 line-up,” said festival co-producer Dan Sheehan. “I am proud in curating another diverse lineup that mixes some Cali Roots favorites including Dirty Heads, Common Kings, and Through The Roots, with more up and coming talent making their debut. Artists like Jesse Royal and Mellow Mood from Italy are bringing a high energy fresh sound to our scene alongside Tribal Theory and Humble Soul representing stateside. The legendary hip hop group Jurassic 5 will also be making their first appearance and we couldn’t be more thrilled for them to bring their uplifting vibe to our festival. With two more artists’ announcements to come, 2017 is shaping up to be a landmark year.”
