LIVE PAINTING @ Rootwire Music Festival

  • Poston Lake Athens, Ohio United States (map)

Rootwire is a 4 Day & 3 Night Transformational Experiencedesigned to celebrate and inspire love, beauty, music, community building, and shared consciousness. 

Everyone in attendance: musicians, artists, presenters, organizers, volunteers, staff, vendors, cooks, attendees -- everyone! -- is asked to actively participate in the Transformational Act of personal and collective creation. We hope 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, we have 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 2K16. However, we have yet to finalize all aspects of the event, so there is more to look forward to as we make further adjustments that will take the event to ever higher heights. Expect your experiential and mind-glowing pleasure to reach pinnacle peaks at the 7th Annual Rootwire!

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.

As part of our continuing Transformation, RW2K16 will be moving to a new venue this year. From July 28 through 31, Rootwire love will reign supreme at Poston Lake in Athens, OH!! This spacious, pastoral land is located right outside of Athens nestled into the beautiful Appalachian Foothills with picturesque views, wooded camping, 2 ponds, a grassy, hillside amphitheater and dance floor, a kids area, and a huge communal bonfire pit. At the heart of this wonderland will be our Ceremonial Center which will serve as the hub between the 2 stage areas. A central core crossroads where personal connections can be made, ideas can be exchanged, and love can flow. (See the Site Map (coming soon)) Another one of the great things about being in this new venue is that there is TONS of wooded camping and NO alcohol sales, so we can commune with Mother Nature, and you can bring in your own adult beverages of choice! The venue can accommodate 6 to 8,000 attendees, but we are intentionally capping attendance at 5,000, so there will be plenty of room for us to breathe. We couldn't be happier with the new site, and we can't wait to bring the magic that is Rootwire back to the Heart of it All.... OHIO!

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. You will make a difference if you're there, so, please, join us at Rootwire 2K16!
