It’s always worth attending at least one of the days.
Stick Figure must be killin it. I am still unfamiliar with their sound and just don’t have the interest to even search for their material. Maybe I’ll give them a listen..

Unless they're adding more artists, that's a weak lineup for a 3 day fest IMO.

From what I've heard, most of these listed names might be playing smaller venues in the area around that time still to be announced: Kabaka Pyramid is at Moe's Alley February 17th! I think I'll check a few of these reggae names that way this year & leave the fest to the Valley metal fans again. I haven't seen Cypress Hill live in years- that sounds like a fun set to me! smoking smiley I have always watched parts of Cali rock fest at home from the live stream. Maybe that will happen again?

‘Valley metal fans’ , I am admittedly from San Jose and also a fan of metal music , but I cant count how many shows I seen you spin Spleece. It’s a little hard not to take your comments personally. There’s no metal music on this bill , Cannibal Corpse is next month and Erykah Badu was last month but I guess that’s not metal.

Your right about the smaller venues , many of those artists will turn out locally and That might be the way to see them

cool, i'd like to see those acts as well. make a $1,000+ weekend (my expenses) happen for those six artists and music close to what they represent, and i might make the trip... this other stuff gets mentions and reviewed on my programs (some of it; and in fact there are a coupla "Cali-Reggae" bands on there i DO like - Iya Terra, for one) but only one of them made my "favorite albums of 2018 show"...

and another point i wanna make is that in my opinion one of the very best reggae albums of 2018 to come out of Cali was by Mykal Rose & The Red Lions... that's REAL ROOTS to my ear. they're not on the bill. not to speak of the many other local Cali acts that never get to that stage

also it seems this fest is almost always a repeat of the same bands over and over and over... into infinity, it seems.

there's really nothing in the BIG PRINT that makes me wanna spend the dough n time. guess this ones jus not for me...

I went a couple of days last year and had a good time. Saw the targeted artists, & got my reggaefix. E40 did a banging set, too. Great, positive vibes all around in a good venue, with happy&stoked people all grooving all the time...while I was there. Nothing wrong wit dat. Sure the lineup was not everything I dream of. Those dreams are now just memories from days gone by. They don't happen cause the artists I really wanna see are universally older, infirmed, or dead. BUT it's a solid, well run festival. Spendy, but reliable.

Not planning on going this year, but I gotta give it up to amy and dan @ CaliRoots for keeping some fyah burning.

Agreed. With the line-up revised as you suggested, I'd not just want to go, but take my family & friends, support the food & clothing vendors, and maybe even give it some additional promotion! winking smiley

These large festivals are capitalism in it's purest form. You have to pay money, and you have to get paid money. These are the bands that will both sell the most tickets and charge the most money. Perhaps the name is somewhat misleading because you don't have much Roots but this is a perfect line up for who you are trying to sell tickets to. It has nothing to do with reggae purity or this and that. It has to do with selling tickets to a fan base and being around for the following season.

"Reggae Business" has never been removed from capitalism. I am sure Steel Pulse, Proteje, Kabaka Pyramid, Jesse Royal, Jo Mersa and/or Alborosie would acknowledge that as well. Point is, POV's are "relative" and much of what is expressed on this thread is from POV's that are influenced by having the opportunity to pick and choose based on proximity to much higher frequency of shows within a given region relative to the majority of other regions in the continental US.

Sometimes I wish I had the ability to erase threads , so I don’t have to look at all the negativity. I posted this just like any other show but I don’t particularly like this festival either. I just posted it.

It’s more for the local people who might want to attend. If you are totally against this festival why did you click on this post? It’s a concert poster for a show in northern California.

I saw ads on the Bart train today, I like Protoje and Don Carlos. Would anyone pay money to see the other artists esp in an extended festival venue?
Re: California Roots Monterey California May 24-26 2019
February 06, 2019 03:23AM
...I guess they would have shorter sets, i like Spleece’s plan to wait for the club shows
I hope Koffee can make it out this summer

For the marketing dept at Cali Roots Fest. I really dislike the ads on the Bart trains for Cali Roots. It looks like a skier lady giving a heavy metal rock on sign. Confusing and disconcerting, first thing I thought was what are these d bags selling.

These guys are on top of it. Already started selling tickets today to fans who purchased this year.

Yeah, ok. I’m sure the marketing department is reading this...let’s be real, they don’t got time to read some phorum that has nothing to do with them. They got their own success.
.

Can you name another festival that sells their tickets a year in advance?
