Madison House Presents and AEG Live announce ROTHBURY: A festival celebrating music, art, and action
Confirmed acts include Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, John Mayer, 311, Modest Mouse Primus, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Thievery Corporation, STS9 and many, many more.
On July 4th weekend 2008, ROTHBURY emerges as a new American celebration. For this next generation of the rock and roll music festival, ROTHBURY sets forth as a huge party with a purpose. Hosted at the one-of-a-kind Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan, the unique festival site offers trails, forests, fields, lakes and beach fronts, and even on-site lodging, bars and eateries. The four day, environmentally sustainable music and camping festival promises to be an inspiring cultural assembly; one where music fans, artists and progressive thinkers gather to celebrate much more than music.
The live music community thrives on that perfect live musical moment, when an individual experience transcends into the collective. ROTHBURY is a true celebration of such moments, and all of the abilities, illuminations, and freedoms of expression that go into creating them. It is ROTHBURY’s goal to harness the unique energy of the live music community into a durable social movement toward an important cause: Climate Change and Clean Energy Alternatives. In addition to a diverse and stellar lineup of over 70 bands on 8 stages, ROTHBURY will host a Think Tank and Energy Fair, and features unprecedented audience participation opportunities.
Music is the soul of ROTHBURY, which today makes its initial artist line-up announcement. Confirmed musical acts include Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, John Mayer, 311, Phil Lesh and Friends, The Mars Volta, Modest Mouse, Primus, Snoop Dogg, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Thievery Corporation, STS9 and many others.
