    Default Rothbury 2009

    ROTHBURY 2009 IS ON!

    YEAR TWO OF THE GROUND BREAKING FESTIVAL
    HAPPENS 4th OF JULY WEEKEND, 2009
    AT THE DOUBLE JJ RANCH IN ROTHBURY, MICHIGAN

    LINE-UP ANNOUNCEMENT AND TICKET ON-SALE INFORMATION COMING SOON

    ROTHBURY, last year’s break-out festival hit, returns to the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan on July 2-3-4-5, 2009. Look for artist line-up announcement and ticket on-sale information coming soon.

    Building on the outstanding success of its inaugural year, ROTHBURY once again harnesses the unique 21st century American festival spirit to create an event unlike any other. With music at its core, ROTHBURY continues its mission to create a state-of-the-art large scale sustainable event and to organize and nurture community involvement that makes a difference. ROTHBURY is a huge party with a purpose.

    This announcement ends months of speculation as to whether or not this highly anticipated festival gem would resurface. No two ROTHBURY festivals will be the same. 2009 attendees can look forward to even more over-the-top entertainment experiences and broadened VIP offerings unmatched by any other U.S. festival.

    ROTHBURY’s bold social and environmental mission continues to manifest in 2009, building on last year’s topic of Climate Change and Clean Energy Solutions. Within the festival, look for expanded ROTHBURY Think Tank activities and even more cutting-edge festival implementation of ever-changing technologies in the quest for energy independence. Beyond the festival, via innovative community projects and local partnerships, ROTHBURY 09 offers increased involvement opportunities to make a positive impact locally, nationally, and globally.

    As ROTHBURY Producer Jeremy Stein explains, “ROTHBURY is proud to host a community of conscious and involved fans who strive for a better future. We’re also extremely grateful for the support of our local neighbors and the greater Michigan community. Together – we’re raising the bar.”

    Indeed, such unparalleled community support and involvement led to huge successes for ROTHBURY’s 2008 philanthropic programs and on-site environmental festival initiatives. Such initiatives included ROTHBURY's Music in Schools Program, ROTHBURY’s Solar Schools Program, the ROTHBURY Food Drive and The Conscious Alliance Can Sculpture, and ROTHBURY’s Greening and Sustainability Initiatives.
    For details on these 2008 programs visit www. rothburyfestival. com

    Stay tuned for 2009 ROTHBURY lineup announcement and ticket on-sale information, including ROTHBURY’s Ticket Layaway Plan.

    ROTHBURY is produced by Madison House Presents and AEG Live.

    Since I'm unable to attend Coachella this year, this is definitely a possibility for me, being a <3 hour drive from me.

    I just hope the lineup is decent. Last year's left A LOT to be desired. If they can snag the Cure, I'm so there. Or omgradioheadlulz.

    When I tell you it's in the middle of nowhere...

    Muskegon's about 30 miles south of Rothbury. The festival includes camping costs in your ticket price, if that tells you anything.

    I went last year not expecting much. I live in Chicago so it is only about a 4 hour drive. I figured it would be a good time to spend the 4th of July weekend with my friends camping.....

    I WAS BLOWN AWAY. It is was one of TEH best festivals/experiences of my life.


    The camping is very similar to Bonnaroo...all over the place, no real supervision, and some spots are kind of far from the music. Although people in golf cars will drive you around as if it were a taxi.

    You are more than welcome to enter/leave the festival grounds in your car. People were driving into town to get more supplies and/or eat. Some people we met from New York had a hotel they drove to each night/morning.

    If anyone has any questions...lemme know. I can get some pictures online too.


    NOTE.....I <3 Spicy Pie was there last year!!!

    Of all of the new festivals that came out in 2008, this is the only one I really heard nothing but fucking RAVE reviews about. So for that, I'm very interested in going.

    But a lot of the great talk was about the lineup, which to me, was pretty good but not necessarily great.... I thought OSL and Pemberton had better lineups personally speaking.

    If the lineup's really good this year though... I'll be seriously conisdering it.

    Why does Michigan have to be such a lame place to travel to, anyway?

    For that... Pemberton and APW > Rothbury.

    Oh it is? I thought it was in August... dammit. Now I really doubt I'll be going... unless the lineup is fucking orgasm-worthy... which, in theory, it could be.

    Slurpee, is the festival close to the lake or is a bit away?

    I only ask because I used to camp in the area with my family a few years ago at North Muskegon state park. And the best part of camping at this particular state park is that you're literally in walking distance from the camp sites to the dunes/lake michigan. If the Rothbury festival is anything similar, I might just go up there for that exact reason.

    if you were looking to fly to this festival, i think you would wanna look into flying into Grand Rapids or Lansing ( i think they both have airports). Otherwise I would fly into Chicago instead of Detroit.

    its about 30 miles north of muskegon but not on the lake .... they are super eco minded which is a good thing ... they even give you an ashtray for your butts lol .... and listen coachella, they have CLOTH wristbands (so they dont have to use plastic) .... here is a link to some dudes pics from last year (i dont know him) some of the pics are sort of lame and some pretty good but there is a shitload of them ... i didnt see any of the nightime forest being lit up and i understand they have a great fireworks show afterwards ... cr****
