As we’ve said before, the Common Ground on the Hill Roots Music & Arts Festival is about community. Since we started, we’ve strived to bring together the sounds of the world to Westminster, Maryland, for a one-day event that pays tribute to diversity and cultural appreciation. It’s what we come back for each and every year.
That’s why we’re excited to share the latest news: Common Ground on the Hill Roots Music & Arts Festival was just named one of North America’s Best Festivals!
In the first part of their latest guide to North America’s best festivals in 2018 and 2019, Flightnetwork, North America’s leading travel agency, has named Common Ground on the Hill as a must-see destination for festival-goers. We’re ranked amongst some of the best names in the industry, and are proud to share space with some of our favorite festivals.
Here’s what they had to say about us:
Westminster, Maryland, sits at a crossroads of sorts for music. It sees creativity from Southern Appalachian; more worldly sounds from West Africa and Ireland with its immigrant population, and roots; and finds blues, bluegrass, and rock from its past. Then add hip-hop and dance into the mix, and you have yourself the Common Ground on the Hill Roots Music & Arts Festival, an all-day music blowout that sees a “common ground” of continuous performances from all of these backgrounds happening across four stages. Held at the charming Carroll County Farm Museum, attendees can brush shoulders with the stars themselves, and peruse a wine and beer garden, food options, crafts, and a children’s area open to the entire family.
We’re delighted to see our mission to unite arts and culture from across the globe under one tent recognized. And we can’t wait to bring everyone back together next year. We look forward to any FlightNetwork readers who will join us.
