Over the past six years, the Bend Roots Revival has grown from a small gathering of local artists jamming in and around Parrilla Grill and The Victorian Cafe to one of Central Oregon’s biggest and best music events and a vital celebration of local arts that takes over the Century Center for an entire weekend.
This weekend is that weekend. The Bend Roots Revival is back!
In today’s GO! Magazine, we’ve got everything you need to enjoy the Bend Roots Revival, including:
-A performance schedule that’ll be more helpful than anything else you can find, I guarantee it.
-A story about what’s new at the Revival, including new stages, new artists and a new partnership with Rise Up International.
-A quick look at five featured performers at the festival that you may not already be familiar with: Brooks Robertson, Aisea Taimani, Consider the Fox, The Woods and Flying Kites.
Enjoy it, folks!
