A Midwest Gem | Rootwire 2K17 | Pomeroy, OHMarie SteeleJune 11, 2017Festivals0 Comments 0 Rootwire is a 4-Day, 3-Night Transformational Experience designed to Celebrate and Inspire Love, Beauty, Music, Community Building, and Shared Consciousness. Now in its seventh year, this is one of the premiere transformational festival in the Midwest. Everyone in attendance: musicians, artists, presenters, organizers, volunteers, staff, vendors, cooks, attendees – is asked to actively participate in the Transformational Act of personal and collective creation. In hopes that from day one everyone is there thinking, “Love starts from me!” and goes back home four days later feeling it ten times stronger. As with every year, Rootwire meticulously searched far and wide for the most amazing and inspiring Transformational musicians, artists, and presenters available and have already assembled an impressive lineup for Rootwire 2K17. As you’ve come to expect, this year’s musical lineup once again features jaw dropping sounds from local, regional, national and international acts. To enhance the music, aesthetically, Rootwire offers the largest festival-based visionary art exposition in the Eastern United States, hosting an international lineup of artists whose works are of the most moving and stunning expressions the imagination and spirit can manifest. And while the art and music of Rootwire will certainly open your mind and fill your heart, it doesn’t stop there. This landmark festival also gives the same conscientious attention to the soul … to spiritual, educational, and ceremonial aspects of celebration, offering a transcendent selection of inspiring speakers, master practitioners, devoted activists, tribal elders, and activated yogis. Rootwire intends to supercharge every joy, dance, love, laugh, spin, hug, and think molecule in your body and beyond. Rootwire is about tapping in, about getting deep, about planting roots in things that matter, about blooming and branching out to connect and flow in the spirit of love. “This festival changed my life in the strangest ways! I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that the people here care deeply for the earth, the music, the diverse art and the beautiful people in Appalachian Ohio, and created a space where everyone who attends – whether local or international – leaves having been inspired by amazing new creative processes, expressions and personalities. And the artists, musicians, performers, workshop presenters, and fellow campers are approachable and happy to interact! The lineups are crazy good, especially for the price of the ticket! (The Polish Ambassador, RJD2, Phutureprimitive, anyone?) The care of the aesthetics is obvious and wonderful, and the healing tent (all included in ticket price) offers massage, energy work and body work of all disciplines! As a summer fest warrior, this stands out as such a supreme service, and it is done with love and intent. This fest is also the cleanest music festival I have ever attended! Thanks, Zero Waste! Oops … I went on and on. Go to this. You won’t regret it.” You will make a difference if you’re there, so join us at Rootwire 2K17!
