First Festival


Sacramento's grass roots music festival

Arden Park Roots Takes First Fest Stage Sunday, May 7th.

Arden Park Roots

In 2016, Arden Park Roots broke the all-time attendance record at Sacramento's 25-year-old Concerts in the Park series with a crowd of over 7900. The year also saw the band headlining several Nor Cal festivals and sharing the stage with bands such as Pepper, Weezer, Slightly Stoopid, Ballyhoo, Dirty Heads, Damian Marley, Steel Pulse and The Wailers. Look for album 5 to be released in late 2017.

Recipients of numerous SN&R Sammies, APR is very much a Sacramento favorite that has gained notoriety in the festival scene regionally. In 2012 they were inducted into the Sammy Hall of Fame where they sit alongside other First Fest 2017 Headlining acts like Some Fear None. The response from Sacramento after announcing Arden Park Roots wasj joining the lineup is indicative of their popularity and stamina in the Sacramento music scene.  We look forward to closing out First Fest with Arden Park Roots!
