Join us November 10 – 12, 2017 at Riverfront Park in Cocoa, FL!
Rootfire At The Park is a music & lifestyle festival with the promise of exceptional music and thoughtful details that make a day outside better. Things like free sunscreen, games, and discounted tickets if you ride your bicycle. We are highlighting craft vendors who create thoughtful food, and local vendors who keep the energy close to home. In the beverage world, we extend the term craft to not only cover quality beer and wine, but to also offer a place to enjoy other beverages ranging from kombucha to kava kava, and beyond.
Children 12 & Under get in Free. Children must be accompanied by a Parent/Legal Guardian. When you purchase your adult ticket, please be sure to RSVP how many children you will be bringing with you.
SOCCER GARDEN PARTY:
SGP will be hosting activities for all ages throughout the weekend, including 4v4 games, soccer tennis and a skill session for kids hosted by Mill Valley Soccer Club coach, Julien Melendez.
Every day, before the music starts, we invite you to stretch out and take a few deep breaths with us. All levels of experience are welcome. This will be flowy, fun, and easy for beginners.
RIDE YOUR BIKE DISCOUNT:
It’s good for your body, and good for the environment too! Discounted tickets are available to anyone riding their bike. We are also looking into organizing bike rides every morning before gates open. If you have experience leading rides, or just want to join along for the fun, shoot us an email and let us know! rootfire [at] rootfire [dot] net
Rootfire events help us fund the Rootfire Cooperative, where we give interest-free loans to artists and provide an alternative to the traditional record label.
“Artists releasing their music through Rootfire Cooperative receive money from their album sales directly from their distributor, which they use to repay their loan. Rootfire Cooperative doesn’t take any portion of an album’s profits, recouping only its invested funds, and the artists maintain 100% ownership of their music throughout the entire process.” – as featured on Billboard.com May 4, 2016
THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL WITH US
Rootfire Soundclash (RF 001)
RF 001 was a late night “sound clash” in a 300-person club off the main drag in Monterey, CA. Bringing musicians from several of the American Reggae scene’s most active bands together into one super group for one set of music. The show included members of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, The Expanders, The Green, and Westbound Train.
Rootfire At The Beach (RF 002)
RF 002 took place on the golf course grounds and lawn overlooking Avila Beach, CA, on August 2, 2015. It was a full day of music from Stephen Marley, Collie Buddz, The Movement, and Expanders Sound System, and the sun set slowly behind the stage as Tribal Seeds finished their set. 3,000 people joined us. We focused on making the day friendly for everyone, with our first pickup soccer game, a dedicated kids and game zone, kites, and free water.
Rootfire At The Park (RF 003)
RF 003 was our first festival in Florida, on October 22, 2016. It was a perfect day at Riverfront Park in Cocoa, FL, with Iration, Tribal Seeds, Collie Buddz, The Movement, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, The Holdup, Beebs, Kevin Kinsella, Dustin Thomas, and Part One Tribe. Anyone who rode their bike got $5 off admission, children ran through the fountain, the Soccer Garden Party began. As the sun set on the second stage, Collie Buddz joined The Movement for the first (and so far, only) time they’ve ever performed their song “Habit 2016” together in front of an audience. Love was in the air.
Rootfire In The Emerald City (RF 004)
In the evergreen trees of Seattle, WA, Marymoor Park is host to a number of our favorite artists every summer. RF 004 featured Thievery Corporation, Stick Figure, Trevor Hall, The California Honeydrops, Sol, Kore Ionz, and pedal-powered performances (yes, powered by bikes!) in between sets on July 29, 2017.
