“Everyone in the Rootwire Family is extremely pleased to bring you the second installation of the 2012 Artist Lineup! This is easily the most powerfully diverse collection of musicians and visionaries the Midwest has ever seen, and we cannot express enough gratitude to the artists themselves for making this happen. This year’s festival breaks free of the standards imposed by the status quo, and delves into new genres of music, art, and spirituality.
We have found that many a festival’s music tends to sound the same so this year we decided to focus on diversity. Other than our massive collection of the world’s best conscious electronic dance producers and bands, we are introducing new musical styles this year such as world, hip hop, free form jazz, dub reggae, and progressive art rock. Our visionary guests include world renowned painters, digital designers, and many Burning Man installation artists, in an effort to further the festival’s inspirational capacity. The word is out, and we have never been so excited for an event in our entire lives!”
