California Roots Festival

  • Monterey County Fairgrounds (map)

Three days of roots and reggae!

California Roots isn’t just a music festival; it’s a movement. It’s a way of life. It delivers a cosmic blend of good vibes, true happiness, family, peace, love and joy to all who enter. When Jimi Hendrix torched his guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival in the late ‘60’s, he changed the way an entire generation looked not only at music festivals, but life itself.

It is out of this same pure energy–the energy of natural and peaceful rebellion–that California Roots was born. We discovered the ecstasy that culminates from listening to awesome music, smiling at your neighbors and dancing with strangers; California Roots is about living life to the fullest.

2018 lineup includes Iration, Rebellion, 311, Atmosphere, Stephen Marley, E-40, Ozomatli,Tash Sultana, The Original Wailers, and way way way more.
