FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE CALIFORNIA ROOTS MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL IS RESCHEDULED TO MAY 2021
THE 2021 LINEUP STAYS 99% INTACT TAKING PLACE OVER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND (MAY 28-30) AT THE MONTEREY COUNTRY FAIR AND EVENT CENTER
Monterey, CA (July 9, 2020) – Out of interest for public health and safety in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Roots Music & Arts Festival announced today to move the October 2020 event to May 2021 taking place at the Monterey County Fair and Event Center. The lineup will remain 99% intact and will feature the biggest names in reggae, hip hop, and roots music.
Dan Sheehan, Co-Producer states, “As we continue to deal with these unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we want to thank our community for being so patient as we navigate the best path forward. This is a difficult announcement to make, but likely not all that surprising. We have decided to reschedule Cali Roots 2020 to May 2021 at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center. This is not what we had hoped for, but a necessary one to ensure the continued safety of our beloved music community. It’s heartbreaking for us to face a year without Cali Roots, but we will be back in 2021.”
The original dates were to take place over Memorial Day weekend (May 22-24) this year, and had to be rescheduled to October 9-11, 2020, and now moved to May 2021, for the continued health and safety of fans, staff, artists, partners, and residents of Monterey County. This decision is in keeping with local and state recommendations, which have an uncertain end date at this time.
All tickets purchased for the 2020 festival will be valid and applied to the 2021 event. California Roots Music Festival will be reaching out by email to current ticket holders by the end of the week July 10, 2020. Ticketholders that have questions or concerns can contact email@example.com for more details.
