The final day of California Roots 2017 had arrived, but what a Sunday Funday it turned out to be! With the best music on the horizon, everyone arrived at the Monterey Fairgrounds stoked. First up was Ballyhoo!, followed by RDGLDGRN on the Bowl Stage and Roots of Creation kicking off the OG Stage. Jah9 poured her soul into her performance, with Collie Buddz continuing the good vibes. Humble Soul kept the party going right before Anthony B exploded onto the stage with incredible energy. Iya Terra stole Cali Roots this year, hands down. Finishing off the 8th Annual was Jurassic 5, Mellow Mood, John Brown's Body, Thievery Corporation, and the OG Cali captains headlining, Dirty Heads. Everyone left with heavy hearts that Cali Roots had reached an all-too-quick conclusion, yet held onto high hopes for next year. Cheers to the 9th Annual, reggae lovers!
