Popular Music Festival Returns to Columbia
Author: John Drake Robinson
What started as a birthday party 11 years ago has become one of the best music festivals in the nation. Two stages. Three days. Thirty-two acts.

Here are five reasons you’ll want to attend the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival held Sept. 29-Oct. 1 in Columbia:

Headliners
Gary Clark Jr. Band of Horses. Emmylou Harris. Booker T’s Stax Revue. Leon Bridges. Ryan Adams. And more.

Timing
Smack dab in the season when Mark Twain says Missouri is at her best.

Encores
Musicians rank this festival among the best in the country. Any country. Returning acts: The Mavericks. John Prine. Ana Popovic. Pokey Lafarge. The Steeldrivers. The Hooten Hallers.

Comfort
Columbia’s beautiful spacious Stephens Lake Park allows you to spread out and enjoy.

Cutting Edge
This festival has a national reputation for introducing “the best bands you’ve never heard of.” And this year peek into your future by using the cutting edge technology of a cashless event. While world-class talent entertains you from two stages, you’ll be wearing the latest digital fashion: a smart wristband that takes the place of cash and credit cards.

Thanks to RFID (radio frequency identification) your wristband becomes your smart money. To pay using your RFID wristband, start by “topping-up” and loading money to your cashless account – like a pre-paid account. Then use your smart wristband to purchase food, drinks and souvenirs.
