The 2016 Labor Day weekend music celebration is loaded to the brim with an all star lineup. The two-day festival will showcase performances with Rebelution, The Expendables, Fortunate Youth, Passafire, The Movement, HIRIE, The Steppas, Arden Park Roots, E.N. Young, GONZO, Arise Roots, Ethan Tucker and Simple Creation with more lineup announcements expected soon.

“It’s a baby-beast and I’m excited to grow it”

Monser, founder and co-producer of California Roots Music and Arts Festival, and co-founder/producer of Carolina Sessions is no stranger to the scene. “With Dry Diggings, my goal was to make it one big affordable party, with onsite camping, killer live music, great brews, some good food, and fun games throughout the weekend. It’s one of those weekends that great bonds and memories are to be made. This fest particularly, due to the camping will provide the fans with a full-festival experience. It’s a baby-beast and I’m excited to grow it,” says Monser.

General admission weekend passes are $85, with parking passes at an additional $40. Onsite weekend camping fees are set at $100, or $325 with an RV.  For more information about one of the most anticipated festivals, please visit DryDiggingsFestival.com.
