Nashville reggae group Roots of a Rebellion won a slot to perform at Bonnaroo after being crowned state champs at the Road to Roo competition on Mon., April 4.

Sponsored by Lightning 100, MillerCoors and BMI, the competition began with more than 350 state submissions, and was narrowed down to one winner in a six-week concert competition.

The Knoxville city winner, Josiah and the Greater Good, traveled to Nashville for the state finals at Mercy Lounge, and came in second place.

Roots of a Rebellion will travel to Manchester, Tennessee, to perform at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in June.
