Muddy Roots Festival 2012 Complete Lineup

The first year of the Muddy Roots Festival was about breaking ground. The second was about breaking even. The third year will be about breaking the mold of everything a music festival can be.

Muddy Roots isn’t just a festival my friends. No. It’s an act of solidarity. It is a force of the collective Will of real roots fans united from disparate backgrounds, coming together to say “We are here, and things can work differently.” It is proof that music can be true to it’s roots, while still innovating and moving forward. It is an example how success can be measured not simply by money and numbers, but by the amount of memories made, the amount of friendships forged, and the strengthening of community through a focus of sustainability. The Muddy Roots Festival isn’t just a big party, it is principles and philosophies in action; it just happens to be one hell of a good time as well.

Find below the additions to the initial Muddy Roots lineup, and then the rest of the linuep below that. “I gotta say man, this line up is our dream team all star lineup. I can’t wait!!” says Muddy Roots Promoter, Jason Galaz.

Additionally, Muddy Roots is working on potentially providing a 3rd stage that would work as an “open-mic” stage. When putting together a festival like this, there will never be enough spots for all the bands that want to play, and all the bands the patrons might want to see. This open-mic concept is something Saving Country Music has lobbied hard for, but will only help with the cooperation of bands and fans, sponsors, and volunteers.
