California Roots Music And Arts Festival
California Roots Music And Arts Festival

Good Vibez Presents, the organizers behind the long-loved California Roots Music and Arts Festival, have been hard at work filling out their 2024 Cali Roots lineup.

Having dropped the initial lineup back in November, the new year brought a new set of acts to the three-day festival’s schedule, including a special acoustic set from reggae royalty Stephen Marley, California’s own E-40 and Too Short, and N.W.A. founder turned international superstar, Ice Cube. Of course, these latest additions will join previously-announced favorites like Damien ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Burning Spear, Lupe Fiasco, and more over the weekend of May 24-26 at the festival’s long-running home at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California. These latest lineup additions can be found below and at californiarootsfestival.com, stay tuned for more updates including an announcement of Friday’s headliner.

The entire Good Vibez crew is thrilled to announce this year’s wealth of musical talent for a fanbase of festival goers who’ve made Cali Roots an annual tradition and those making their first pilgrimage to Monterey in May. “I look forward to Cali Roots weekend all year long,” says Dan Sheehan, festival producer and co-host of Cali Roots Radio on SiriusXM’s The Spectrum. “It’s not lost on me that our festival is more than just an event with music, it’s a chosen and blood family reunion for many of you. All of the artists joining us this year are at the top of their game and I can’t wait to hear how they bring it in 2024. See you in May, Cali Roots.”
