CALIFORNIA ROOTS FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES ONLINE MUSIC FESTIVAL
WITH A MASSIVE LINE UP!
Monterey, CA (May 19, 2020) – California Roots Music Festival is excited to announce their new online event, Cali Roots: Can’t Stop The Music An Online Music Festival Experience featuring almost 40 bands such as Rebelution, SOJA, Tribal Seeds, Dirty Heads, Iration, Common Kings, Steel Pulse, The Expendables and so much more. The live stream edition will take place May 22-24, 2020 at CaliforniaRootsFestival.com and will celebrate the strong community & the music that has brought music lovers together the last eleven years.
With live music at a standstill due to COVID-19, there have been an array of live stream events popping up. In an effort to once again lead the way, California Roots has curated a unique blend of music & experiences for fans to enjoy from the comfort and safety of their own homes called
Cali Roots: Can’t Stop the Music An Online Music Festival Experience. The Memorial Day weekend event will be streaming live for three jam packed days, May 22, 23 & 24 at www.CaliforniaRootsFestival.com
To set their event apart, California Roots has constructed their live stream festival into a multi-layer experience complete with an interactive map, paying homage to (but of course not replacing) the onsite festival experience. Fans will have the opportunity to browse the festival map, check in at the box office, visit the virtual stages which will feature over 10 hours of music each day with both new sets from home and sets from the Cali Roots vaults from some of our most iconic Cali Roots artists.
In addition to music, the Wellness Zone will feature yoga sessions, sound bath meditation and other holistic wellness activities and the Art Retreat will host art workshops throughout the weekend. Our Vendor & Nonprofit Row will highlight nonprofits we work with as well as craft vendors fans can shop.
“Our goal in building out this live stream event is to do what we do every year when producing a festival, be a leader in innovation within the event production realm, only this time in a virtual space. Our festivals are all-encompassing experiences and we wanted to mimic that concept online. We want fans to arrive and go explore the festival grounds, check out their favorite artists’ sets, indulge in an art workshop or yoga sessions and shop the vendor booths, just as they would onsite. We know this doesn’t replace the onsite festival experience, but we couldn’t let this weekend pass without gathering in some form to enjoy some good music and good vibes with our festival family. ” Festival Producer, Dan Sheehan states.
