Music lovers and Supporters,
It is with a heavy heart that due to the current identity crisis and poor decision making of our Westport Community, Westport Roots Festival 2019 has officially been cancelled. I simply do not see the current Westport environment as that that can or will foster the Festival that I wish to curate. I am optimistic and confident that these changes that are threatening the arts and culture of our neighborhood will be short lived and remembered as nothing more than a sad chapter in the long story of our Historic Westport Neighborhood. I sincerely hope to regroup in 2020 with an amazing lineup of artists and friends from all over the country.
I encourage you to please continue supporting the artists and curators involved in these smaller, grassroots festivals dotting the country. For 2019, please, please consider visiting our friends at Moonrunners Music Festival in Chicago, Choice City Stomp in Fort Collins, CO, Pondstock at Lake Hedke, Nebraska, or Muddy Roots Music Festival in Cookeville, TN. You will not be disappointed with the quality of these lineups or the amazing folks running them. Furthermore, there are amazing shows and original music happening everyday around you. Support these acts when they come to your town. Buy tickets. Buy merch. Thank them for what they do and encourage them to continue.
It has been my absolute pleasure hosting this festival for the past 5 years and I am very proud of the events we have put together. Likewise, I am so very thankful for all that have attended and invested their time to what I believe is a truly magical gathering of friends from all over the globe.
Be well and always #supportlivemusic

Your Friend,
Travis Fields

I want to nominate Mr Stas' Heaney for Festival MVM (Most Valued Musician), that or biggest stage whore. Either way, he certainly helped a lot of folks make their music sound even more amazing over the weekend! ... See MoreSee Less

    This is my favorite festival of the year. People come from around the world for this festival. Many people come every year. Many of the attendanies go to other Roots festivals so it has a strong community feel without being cliquy. This festival feels like a family reunion without the family drama. I’ve left with new friends every year. The music covers a variety of roots music and there were a good number of female fronted bands and bands that weren’t all dudes.
