ROTHBURY emerged last year as a new Fourth of July celebration. With The Dead performing their only summer show, The String Cheese Incident together for their only show for 2009, and cultural icons Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and Ralph Stanley, ROTHBURY 2009 continues to honor America’s extraordinary festival lineage. Interlacing ushers of the new American music scene such as STS9, Chromeo, and MSTRKRFT, globally recognized acts including Femi Kuti & The Positive Force, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley & Nas, and King Sunny Adé & His African Beats and local Michigan artists The Macpodz, Steppin’ In It, The Ragbirds, Four Finger Five, and The Hard Lessons, ROTHBURY delivers music of integrity across all genres. Coupled with a commitment to exploring the integration of art and modern thought and technology throughout the event, ROTHBURY creates a unique 21st century American gathering unlike any other.
