Info for Revivalists

The 2020 Bend Roots Revival is scheduled for October 30th - November 1st, and will take place at venues throughout Bend - with the entire festival live-streamed. Featuring 80+ performances and educational workshops this year, we encourage Revivalists to watch from home due to Covid-19 precautions..

Info for Revivalists

This year the Roots Festival is being live-streamed from seven outdoor stages around town. Roots’ mission is to give the bands a safe place to perform and be appreciated via the live-streams available here on our website. Check out the schedule, and enjoy the Bend Roots Revival from any streaming device.

While each host business will be open for commerce, capacity at each venue and stage will be limited in the name of community safety. If at any time a venue owner/manager or Roots organizer sees a stage area becoming to “peopley” for folks to do their job of physical distancing, our sound engineers have been instructed to pull the plug, and not resume until the crowd has thinned. We will nip this in the bud before there is a problem, but at the expense of the bands and those watching from home. Please do your part and play by the rules—even if you think it is unnecessary. If you choose to come in-person: wear a mask when you are not eating or drinking, stand at least six feet away from everyone else, and do not crowd the stages. They are there for the bands and their safety.

REVIVALIST WAIVER:

BY ATTENDING THIS EVENT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND ACCEPT, ANY AND ALL RISK OF COVID CONTRACTION. IF YOU COME IN-PERSON (INSTEAD OF WATCHING FROM HOME) YOU ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE CORONA VIRUS, YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SICK, AND YOU HAVE NOT BEEN AROUND ANY PERSONS WHO HAVE BEEN SICK, OR DIAGNOSED WITH COVID FOR AT LEAST THE LAST 14 DAYS.

We believe that the arts are vital to our wellbeing and that safety should be our first priority.

Thanks for your cooperation and participation!
