Just seven weeks after SOJA finished their headlining set at the inaugural California Roots: Carolina Sessions, the California Roots organizers have announced they will once again be returning to Wilmington, North Carolina for their second California Roots – The Carolina Sessions.
Over the past four years, the California Roots producers have created an intimate event that exemplifies Reggae-Rock music, and the California culture that popularized the genre. Lucky fans on the east coast can finally partake in an intimate festival, one that continues to deliver similar vibes to that side of the nation.
All organizers have said, is that more information is coming soon, however the California Roots crew has announced that the party will be expanding to a two-day event! The 2014 California Roots – The Carolina Sessions. is officially scheduled for September 13th and 14th.
Successful throughout the past few years with the California Roots Festival, Jeff Monser and Dan Sheehan decided to spread their talent across the nation, teaming with North Carolina’s Pipeline Events Management LLC to do their first eastern event in centrally located Wilmington, NC.
Following the successes of their first east coast event, once again Reggae-Rock will ring out over the banks of the Cape Fear River, as major headliners play alongside the USS North Carolina at Battleship Park. Initially discussing plans to develop other “Sessions” in different states, rather than journey to a new market and venue, festival organizers seemed to have settled on these beautiful grounds, working to improve this event from various learning experiences, and fan comments of the first year.
With organizers currently busy in production on their 5th annual California Roots festival in Monterey, California (May 23rd-25th), details on the second Carolina Sessions may be sparse for now. However, be sure to look for updates of when artist and ticket announcements will be made.
