Commemorating 21 Years!
The 2022 Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion commemorative poster was unveiled on Thursday, April 28, 2022, and its talented designers, the High Road Agency’s Katie Westbrooks and Sarah Mast, were on hand for the presentation.
HRA has played a key role in designing and producing the poster for the iconic music festival for several years but was extremely proud earlier this year when Katie and Sarah’s design was chosen. This is the 21st year of the festival, which takes place Sept. 9-11, and the collectible poster is always one of the most popular items with fans.
With a banjo serving as the poster’s focal point, its rich neon colors make it a standout piece of artwork. Katie and Sarah signed and numbered the first 100 posters, which are being sold now at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol.
During the intial concepting phase, Katie and Sarah brought two wildy different designs to the table. Ultimately, the decision was to combing the two concepts into one, resulting in the final 2022 Festival Poster. Below are the two initial concepts that inspired the final design.
