Have you been anticipating this year’s Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival lineup? Well, the wait is over. Last night, during the Roots N Blues N BBQ artist announcement, the first round of artists were named by Richard King, president of Thumper Entertainment and head of the festival. Also announced this week in a press release was the 2018 King of the Roots winner: The Mighty Pines of Saint Louis. Their prize? A chance to perform in September. Seven Missouri bands competed in the event. The winners were determined through a crowd vote and a panel of judges.
The 12th Annual Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival will be held Friday, Sept. 28th through Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018 at Stephens Lake Park in Columbia, Missouri. Information and tickets are available at rootsnbluesnbbq.com. There are still a few more spots to fill and the full stage schedule will be released in a few weeks.
