Dan Sheehan, Co-Producer states:

“The past year has been very challenging, giving many of us more time to reflect on what’s important. The Cali Roots community is amazing, supportive, and made clear on how much this festival means to them. We want our community to know that we have been listening and expanded the festival to ensure the best programming yet! We are excited about the artists joining us in 2022, and feel that we have put together something for everyone to enjoy.”

“To everyone that has stuck by us, bought our merch, or sent positive messages our way, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are dedicated to producing another unforgettable event and are counting the days until we are together again.”
