The 12th Annual Cali Roots will return to Monterey, California, on May 25-28, 2023, to the grounds where modern American music festivals were born (Monterey County Fairgrounds, the home of Monterey International Pop Festival in 1967 and forever home to Monterey Jazz Festival). Legendary hip-hop collective, Wu-Tang Clan, the rollicking ska-punk band, The Interrupters, and Mr. Boombastic himself, Shaggy, will make their Cali Roots debut on the very stage where Jimi Hendrix famously set his guitar on fire. Additionally, the festival will see the return of mainstay favorites Dirty Heads, Hirie, Atmosphere, Cypress Hill, Iration, SOJA, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Dispatch, and Sublime with Rome. Stay tuned for two more headliners to be announced early next year.
Limited Early Bird 3-day and 4-day tickets will go on sale Monday, November 7th, at 10 am PST.
