Rootfire At The Park 2017

Friends,

From the bottom of my heart, I cannot thank you enough for joining us this weekend at the 2nd annual Rootfire At The Park.  We’re working hard to empower artists and build a community that supports each other.  Every individual counts, and every action we take has a ripple effect far beyond what we may ever know.

We had some challenges this year, from the passing of Charles Bradley, to Hurricane Irma stopping us in our tracks. But the community rallied. You showed up to help make this an unforgettable weekend of family, friends and music.

I’m forever grateful for your support.

If you’re willing, I would love to hear a little more about your experience this weekend, so we learn and grow together.  Please scroll down to leave any feedback below.

Thank you!
Reid Foster
General Manager

ROOTFIRE COOPERATIVE:

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

“Launched in the spring of 2016, Rootfire Cooperative is a partnership between Rootfire and Ineffable Music Group that offers interest-free microloans to artists.” – as featured in Forbes, Aug 22, 2017

THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL WITH US

 

 History:

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.
