static roots festival 2023
roots music to feed your soul
7. & 8. Juli 2023
"It’s not just the music that makes this thing so special … the music loving people who come and the respect that they have for the music and just the reverence that we all have and it’s something that I’ve never quite experienced anywhere else on earth."
"Americana in anderen Sphären - Leidenschaft kann Berge versetzen. Mit seiner Musikbegeisterung hat ein IT-Unternehmer nicht nur das erste genreübergreifende deutsche Americana-Festival ins Leben gerufen. Dietmar Leibeckes Passion ist sogar dabei, Oberhausen als einen der international gefragtesten Standorte des Genres zu etablieren."
"You can find gold in the most unlikely of places if you look hard enough. Now, Oberhausen, a quiet industrial backwater in the Ruhr valley a few miles from the metropolitan splendour of Dusseldorf, wouldn’t be the first place you would look for an amazing two day americana and roots festival. Well, it turns out it is THE place to look"

"Oberhausen’s Static Roots Festival is now well-established in the European Roots calendar and for a growing itinerant community of music fans it has joined High Wycombe’s Ramblin’ Roots, Kilkenny, and the London and Nashville Americana Fests as essential stopping-off places. "

Now in its fourth year, Static Roots has grown from an initial invite only event to being sold out for the first time .“
