California Roots 2018 Announced!

October 11, 2017

"In a time when music is under siege by corporations and big business, and festivals are turning into targets for terrorism and hate, California Roots will always remain a refuge for LOVE."


Reggae, Rap, Roots, and Rock lovers have been celebrating California Roots Music and Arts Festival for eight years! Cali Roots is the perfect mixture of Cali Reggae, island reggae, reggae-rock, grass roots reggae, revival movement artists, regge-hip hop, and straight jams that will keep your feet moving. And every October the early announcement for the upcoming year is leaked while lovers of the genres wait for the first release of acts on the upcoming line up. 

Cali Roots plans to feature Slightly Stoopid, 311, J Boog, Chronnix, Alpha Bondy, HIRIE, Steel Pulse, New Kingston, Mike Love, Sammy J, The Rise Brothers, and The Holdup. This is just the very first of many reveals for this year's solid lineup. 


There is even promised to be a few Grammy-artists out in Monterey in May including Raging Fyah, and of course J Boog! Early bird tickets went on sale last Friday, and are available here. 


The festival that brings peach and tranquility in its listeners and bands, this event brings togetherness and unity in its music. The music that speaks volumes in a beautiful place that remain a refuge for LOVE.

"Music heals all, and 2018 Cali Roots artists are true messengers of pascifism, harmony, unity."
