A Review of the Arizona Roots Festival

The Arizona Roots Festival was recently introduced by the same organizers tgat produce the California Roots. The Cali Roots is well known for featuring special artistes and performances for over a decade. This years event was organized in conjunction with relentless beats. It was also organized in and out of state location for the first time with the event being hosted at the Rawhide Western Town and Event Center in Chandler, Arizona. In anticipation of how the event would turn out, the event set many people abuzz.

There was a lot of space for movement of people as they perused the different products which is an indication of a well organized event. Whether you wanted to sit o the ground or you had a blanket to sit on, there was enough space for everyone. There were enough wooden picnic tables and chairs next to the main stage for the people who wanted to listen to some music while eating. Water stations were also in plenty. There were two different music stages on different ends of the event venue both being of contrasting sizes. The venue had tow drink bars on opposite sides with enough food outlets. There were a variety of items on sale with some vendors selling hand made items such as hats and bags. Other available items included smoking paraphernalia, hand-blown glass pieces, and CBD treats. This tool for dosing is handy for people who use CBD. The organization and layout of the vendors was very well thought out. There was a graffiti section with large backboards for graffiti artistes to showcase their skill. The attendees were served to an awe filled event as they watched and took photos of their artistes performing. There was an art car in the shape of a lion with green, red and yellow Rastafarian mane that had red seats where people could seat and get a feel of the music. You could also get an aerial view of everybody below by going to the next level of the art car. The mouth of the lion had a red velvet seat that was a favorite spot for people to take photos.

The Rawhide stage, which happens to be the smaller of the two stages was graced by music from 1pm. The first band to grace the stage went by the name Rilen’ out had a lead singer clad in a plain black jacket over a tank top and jeans. She had a beautiful voice sounding like a merge between two popular artistes.
