One of North America’s premiere reggae and roots festivals, California Roots, has announced that headliners for its 2017 iteration will include Jurassic 5 and Dirty Heads.
The festival is slated for May 26-28, once again at the Monterey Co. Fairgrounds in Monterey, Calif. Other artists on the first round lineup include Common Kings, Alborosie, Anthony B., Jesse Royal, Mellow Mood, Through The Roots, Tribal Theory and Humble Soul. More performers will be announced Dec. 1.
The seventh edition of the festival was held over Memorial Day weekend this year. It featured performances by Marley brothers Damien and Stephen, plus Atmosphere, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Rebelution, Michael Franti, and The Expendables.
Early bird GA and VIP “Redwood” passes will go on sale Oct. 11 at 10 a.m. The Redwood passes are sold in conjunction with the Redwood Forest Foundation and each sale leads to two new redwoods being planted.
