    Rolling Stone Names Muddy Roots in 31 Top Festivals For 2016!

    Well hot damn! Little ol’ Muddy Roots Music Festival got named in a list of top tours and festivals in the world for 2016 alongside events like Stagecoach Festival. You know that mega festival with over 200,000 attendees? Yeah, that one. No big deal.. HOLY CRAP!!! We are truly honored to be acknowledged by the biggest rock magazine in the world. When they acknowledge the name Muddy Roots they are not just talking about a brand. Muddy Roots is each and every single one of you collectively making a memorable weekend. It’s how we are able to provide a comparable David vs. Goliath of a good time against the mega fests.

    Granted we wouldn’t consider a good portion of these tours as country. We still appreciate the the mention. It doesn’t mean a bunch of Jason Aldean fans are suddenly going to find our event appealing. But it does mean a ton of folks who haven’t heard of us now have, and if they are in to eclectic lineups like Del McCoury, The Melvins & Bonnie Prince Billy they’ll have a chance to find out about us. So rad.
