The Rites of Spring Festival, better known as RoSFest is one of North America’s longest running and most beloved art rock music festivals, featuring 166 bands from around the globe in its 16-year tenure. After the long year without live music, we couldn’t be happier to head into 2022 with a new Board of Directors, a fresh vision, and most importantly, three days of groundbreaking, mind-melting live shows to remind us why RoSFest rocks!
