Cali Roots Festival

From Friday, May 25, 2018 to Sunday, May 27, 2018 May 25, 2018 May 27, 2018 Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay

That first year drew 1,700 people, and every year since, the event has doubled its attendance. In 2014, organizers added an outdoor arena at the Fairgrounds (called the Bowl) to the original stages, upping the event’s capacity to 11,000 people per day. Other recent upgrades include free live streaming, larger stages, and fancier lounges. As Dan Sheehan, one of the event’s organizers, puts it: “What started as a backyard party is now one of the fastest growing festivals of its size.” Slightly Stoopid, 311 and J Boog lead the list of California Roots ’18 acts revealed today. Steel Pulse, Chronixx, Alpha Blondy, Mike Love and Hirie are also among those confirmed to perform at the Memorial Day Weekend event. Check out the full list of first round 2018 artists on the website.
