STOVALL – Mississippi’s newest and fastest growing Americana festival, The Mighty Roots Music Festival, returns for a second year of live music, camping and revelry at historic Stovall Farm on Friday and Saturday the 23rd and September 24, 2022.
The festival is thrilled to announce a special offer for Coahoma County residents – 50% off any general admission ticket purchased online by September 16.
“We want the Mighty Roots Festival to be not only a significant tourist attraction for Coahoma County, but something our local community enjoys and embraces,” said festival founder Howard Stovall. “And we don’t want anyone to feel left out by the price of a ticket.”
The discount means that after all fees and taxes, ticket prices for local residents will be:
• Friday general admission ticket $24.19
• Saturday general admission ticket $32.72
• General Admission Weekend Pass $49.77
Tickets available at www.mightyrootsmusicfestival.com, Promo code COAHOMA will offer a 50% discount at checkout. VIP ticket prices are not included in the discount. Proof of address will be required for entry with a discounted ticket.
Discount not available after September 16.
The festival also announced that all campsites will be free this year.
“We have acres of space,” adds Stovall. “We would rather fill it with free campers than leave it unused.”
The festival continues to build its team of volunteers for 2022. Volunteers work half a day in exchange for a festival t-shirt and a free weekend GA ticket to the festival.
Anyone interested in volunteering should contact the festival at [email protected] and advise what day and whether it is early or late. The festival also needs a limited number of volunteers on the Wednesday and Thursday before the festival.
The festival recently announced two additions to its lineup. Nashville-based Southern alternative rock band The Vegabonds will play just before Saturday’s headliner Jamestown Revival, completing a day of music that includes Jimbo Mathus and Creatures of the Southern Wild, Robert Ellis, Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe, and Alice Hasen and the Fire.
The festival also announced the addition to the late-night stage of “the most impressive one-man band you’ve ever seen, Cam Cole.
Also appearing on the late night scene are Delta bluesmen Luscious Spiller Friday and Terry “Big T” Williams Saturday. The late-night scene will remain lively until 2 a.m., when the action takes place inside the Stovall Store with Mississippi singer-songwriter Trey Gardo.
Friday’s lineup on the Visit Clarksdale main stage includes Mystic Bowie’s Talking Dreads, Daniel Donato, Few Miles South and Jonathan Ruhl.
Saturday at midnight, the festival will continue its tradition of burning a wooden guitar in effigy to signal the official end of another Mighty Roots Festival.
“It’s our Delta version of Burning Man,” adds Stovall.
The festival has again partnered with the Delta Council, an area economic development organization representing the 19 counties of the Delta and part of the Northwest Mississippi Delta.
The Delta Council will bring its group of farmers and agribusiness actors Young Delta to an educational and social gathering at Mighty Roots on Friday evening. Celebrating the region’s agribusiness is a unique facet of Mighty Roots and fundamental to the event.
Contributing to the immersive festival experience, camping and motorhome pitches are also available. The historic gin building will be open as a VIP area. The food truck concessions will be anchored by the Doe’s Eat Place Truck of Greenville, Mississippi and the Lost Pizza Truck of Cleveland, Mississippi.
