Phoenix, AZ (November 5, 2018) — Arizona Roots Music & Arts Festival will take place at the Riverwalk at Rawhide Western Town & Event Center on February 9 and 10, 2019. The festival will be brought to you by the same team that brings you the California Roots Music & Arts Festival in Monterey, CA- the premier gathering for the progressive U.S. reggae and roots music movement and culture.
Arizona Roots is thrilled to announce its lineup of artists. As to be expected from the Cali Roots team, the two-day event will feature today’s biggest reggae-rock acts, hip-hop, and roots music activists. Artists announced include Rebelution, Stick Figure, Atmosphere, Dispatch, J Boog, Trevor Hall, Collie Buddz, Katchafire, Mike Love, The Movement, Iya Terra., Xiuhtezcatl, and Synrgy. The festival will highlight Arizona’s reggae movement with Black Bottom Lighters, Clint Stevens, Rilen’Out!, Kill Babylon Coalition, and Tha Yoties.
“We are always looking to expand the California Roots brand and bring the movement to other communities,” states festival Co-Producer Dan Sheehan. He adds, “The Arizona market has been a very good market for all of the bands in our scene, so it made sense for us to make the move to Arizona to launch Arizona Roots Music & Arts Festival.”
