"ROADSHOW REVIVAL" on July 1 -- things expand from Johnny Cash tributes to "A Celebration of American Roots Music" for its 9th annual run in Ventura, CA for 2017

Yep, you'll still find it very honky-tonky. That works just as well with things moving indoors, anyway. Here's the lowdown on the hoedown, from the Guide's "Encyclopedia Festivanica."

Jul 1, 2017:
9th annual "ROADSHOW REVIVAL" subtitled "A CELEBRATION OF AMERICAN ROOTS MUSIC," at Discovery Ventura, 1888 E Thompson Bl, Ventura CA 93001;
✔ TIX: $34-$95, online. Advance $38 gen adm or $46 including the Afterparty; Early Bird prices before May 31; VIP & Meet and Greet packages available.
✔ CAMPING: No. There are state beaches in the area that have camping.
✔ THE SCENE: It's an all-ages festival with 14 bands on two stages, plus an evening afterparty. Discovery is Ventura's favorite music venue, bringing the nation's best touring acts and local bands to the stage. This year's lineup is headlined by rock legends Los Lobos along with top-notch rockabilly, outlaw country, and Johnny Cash tribute bands, totaling fourteen bands in all. Official promo reads, "The indoor/outdoor event will be held at Discovery Ventura. Discovery Ventura is located in the midst of a neighborhood with adjacent houses. Because the event site plan includes the expansive lot behind Discovery, parking is located off-site, just down the street from the venue, at 125 Hartman Dr. Ventura, CA 93001. A free shuttle will be running throughout the day starting at 11:30AM through 8pm. The shuttle will pick-up in the lot and drop-off right in front of the festival gates. We highly encourage people to carpool, bike, Uber, cab or get dropped off. There will be an Uber dropoff/pickup zone right in front of the venue. There is also a bike station at the venue where you can secure your cycles – please ride carefully! Please do not block driveways, leave trash, etc. The City of Ventura has made it very clear that if the event negatively impacts the neighborhood we will not be able to do it again. Let’s work together to be sure we can do this EVERY year! A wide range of food options will be available from Discovery’s menu throughout the day and night. Food can be ordered from the tent outside or from inside the venue at the host stand. Alcohol available for 21 years or older only. We will have a number of games on-site including our 7 bowling lanes, multiple Cornhole sets, giant Jenga, foosball and more."
There will also be multiple exhibitors setup at the event." The main festival, "Roadshow Revival," runs 11:30 am-8 pm. The After-Party is 8 pm-1 am. This year, longtime festival producer Ross Emory coproduces with Discover Ventura.

♪ The ACOUSTIC AMERICANA MUSIC GUIDE endeavors to bring you NEWS — and views of interest to artists everywhere — more specifically to musicians and the creative community and music makers and fans of acoustic and Folk-Americana music. That includes both traditional and innovative forms. From the deepest roots to today’s acoustic renaissance, that’s our beat. We provide a wealth of resources, including a HUGE catalog of acoustic-friendly venues (now undergoing a major update), and inside info on FESTIVALS and select performances in Southern California in venues from the monumentally large to the intimately small and cozy. We cover workshops, conferences, and other events for artists and folks in the music industry, and all kinds o’ things in the world of acoustic and Americana and accessible classical music. From washtub bass to musical spoons to oboe to viola to banjo to squeezebox, from Djangostyle to new-fangled-old-time string band music, from sweet Cajun fiddle to bluegrass and pre-bluegrass Appalachian mountain music to all the swamp water roots of the blues and the bright lights of where the music is headed now.
The Acoustic Americana Music Guide. Thanks for sittin' a spell. The porch'll be here anytime you come back from the road.
