    23 Festival & Event Announcements!

    We’re moving at lightning speeds and have too much info to send out to ya. We decided not to risk it to getting lost in algorithms on social media and are putting it all here. Plus, some of y’all like more than one of our events! Bands go on tour and announce their schedule. This is kind of a Jason Galaz tour of events across the U.S. and in Europe. More will be added down the line but this is your schedule for the next year.

    First, we should tell you that we added some new events. We’ve also lowered the cap on some others. The focus from this point forward is a better experience, not a bigger one. You’ll notice this most with the Nashville Boogie. We moved the date and capped it at 1000. This cuts off a couple thousand attendees. We’ll chat more about that below.

    There are a couple new events on our roster. Most of them cap at 500 tickets. Honestly, we want to have fun too! We’ve never started these events to get rich so we really don’t give a damn about getting y’uge.

    There are 22 music festivals and events to give you updates on. That includes lineup announcements, ticket info, and any changes.
    This will go in chronological order.

    Muddy Roots Europe Festival
    June 28-30, 2019
    8th Annual
    Waardamme, BE.

    A couple bands had to cancel. This is the most current lineup.
    Tickets include free camping and hot showers.
    You MUST have a ticket to enter the field. I say this because the music tent is fenced off but the event is the entire field.
    This place is the center of all things Muddy Roots on the European continent and is partnered with my good friend Nicky VanMoerbeke at the Cowboy Up Saloon.
    You can fly to Brussels, take a train to Brugges, and a bus to the property. It’s easy!

    An indie film tent/ local craft beer tent, furnished with places to cool off with a cold beer will be playing films from our community.
    An updated roster will be posted. 2 immediate highlights will be on “When It Breaks” by Possessed By Paul James and Milk Products Media and “Negro Terror” by John Rash. You can find that one on Amazon Prime if you aren’t coming to the field.

    Pabst Blue Ribbon is planning a pop-up party during the weekend. I can’t tell you about that. You’ll know when you ee it or hear about it. They also sponsored Jason and Milton to paint a big ass wall in Nashville. You may recognize the gal from the series of posters we put on the interwebs illustrated by Adam “The Kid” from Kustom Thrills Tattoo. It was part of National Mural Day. We plan on painting in the field and presenting to yall when the gates open too!

    It’s important to know that your weekend passes are from Friday through Sunday. They do not include Thursday. We typically host a small pre-party while we finish wrapping up but this year it got cray cray. It’s an additional $15 online or $20 at the gate. THERE ARE NO DAY PASSES AVAILABLE EXCEPT SUNDAY.

    Here’s the current lineup. You’ll see a few more people in the field though.
