The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

The Pier will be in full attendance this weekend for the California Roots Festival in Monterey, CA. There will be 15+ of us in attendance, including 6 Pier Photographers, as we’ll be hosting the official Meet N’ Greet for the festival at The Pier Booth with Pier T-Shirts & Compilation CDs for Sale!

Man oh man, what a line up! With bands like Rebelution, Dirty Heads, The Green, Mike Pinto, and more, Friday cannot start off any better! As the loaded line up fills the day, California Roots has the official after party already planned out for us. With Josh Heinrichs, SkillinJah, and 77 Jefferson booked for Planet Gemini down the way from the venue, Ease Up and True Press are closing out the Turf Club on the grounds.

Saturday promises just as much with Slightly Stoopid, The Expendables, Tribal Seeds, Ballyhoo!, and plenty more on the list of bands to perform. With multiple stages going, there will always be someone to catch! Sunday features Matisyahu, Collie Buddz, Katchafire, Natural Vibrations, Stick Figure, plus tons more to close out the weekend on a great note!

For those of you reggae-rock fanatics that are cruising the Show Locator looking for shows outside of California Roots Festival, there are some in store for you too!

Pepper has taken An Evening with Pepper Tour to Montana for the weekend as the Summer Camp Music Festival is captivating their audience with our favorite sound. Dumpstaphunk, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Jon Wayne and The Pain, and John Brown’s Body will provide the reggae music at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois.


This is just one highlight to this weekend’s Show Locator! Plus, remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
