Fans of Athens-born psychedelic quintet Papadosio have plenty to look forward to at this year’s Rootwire Festival as the masterminds behind the music and arts event will play three of the four nights alongside a slew of similar acts.
Taking place in Kaeppner’s Woods in the Hocking Hills region of Appalachian Ohio, the band will once again be joined by other like-minded acts, including Karsh Kale Live Band, Eskmo, Hundred Waters and Marco Benevento Trio.
A combination of art, music and guest presentations, Rootwire has become one of the premiere live music and arts festivals in the Midwest since its creation by the members of Papadosio in 2010 as a model of their ideal gathering, according to the band’s website.
This fest annually aims to make the experience fully immersive to those who attend, featuring a variety of things to do and see outside of the live performance, such as painting, performance arts, workshops, yoga and ceremony.
Tickets for the four-day festival — which runs from Aug. 15 to 18 — are $110 and include camping, parking and all entertainment. They can be purchesed through the festival’s official website.
