Making their debuts at the event are Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, UB40 feat. Ali & Astro , Kabaka Pyramid, The Elovaters, and Roots of a Rebellion. Also a special Matisyahu set performing the set list from his classic Live at Stubbs album rounds out the announcement.

Our second lineup announcement highlights acts that have shaped our community throughout the years, coupled with newer artists and Cali Roots debut performances that will help us make history in 2019,” says festival Co-Producer Dan Sheehan. He adds, “We have so much more to announce leading up to May and can’t wait to share it with you for our milestone year.

Cali Roots is known for their high standards and commitment to being an environmentally conscious event, and introduces green initiatives year round.
