Cali Roots has become a leading reggae and roots music festival in the U.S. “When programming our ten year lineup, I knew I had to deliver the best representation of what embodies the event and couldn’t be happier with the results,” says festival co-producer Dan Sheehan. He adds, “The music is just the beginning. We are working with our visual artists for fresh art installations and our greening team to bring even more environmental initiatives.”

The 2019 festival will also feature a diverse lineup of the best food Monterey has to offer. Between sets, attendees can take in and enjoy pop up performances, DJ sets, and unique art installations.
