When my family was here in Michigan from Texas last week, they were amazed that you could now just walk into a store (dispensary) and just buy cannabis products as recreational marijuana is now legal.

Now I think we can all agree that we never thought we'd see the day an entire music festival that is reportedly “the first official Michigan marijuana smoke friendly event” would be happening right here in Lansing, yet here we are.

About The Event

WILX reports the 420 Cannabis Festival will take place at Adado Riverfront Park and is all about celebrating "the legalization of recreational marijuana in Michigan."

Of course the event, powered by JARS, it is a 21-and-up event as their EventBrite page says the nature of the festival is all about "cannabis culture" and music.

While 4/20 has already passed for this year, the Cannabis Festival will be taking place August 13th and 14th from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day...that's 24 full hours of cannabis, food, music and enjoying the company of fellow canna-lovers.

The Music Lineup

It's no secret a lot of our favorite musicians are cannabis users and while Snoop won't be making an appearance, there is still something for everyone with this lineup.

According to the festival's EventBrite page, artists performing include Saving Abel as the headliner, Kelsey Lynn, Sway Boi, No Sleep Milli, Cutthroat Situation and more!

There will also be a lineup of DJ's that is to be announced later.

How To Get Tickets

According to WILX, tickets are available in a wide range of prices with general admission tickets starting at a $55 price tag while VIP tickets cost $1,500.

You can mix it up and only get passes for one of the days or both, as each day promises to each be a different vibe.

If you purchase tickets for Friday, August 13th, festival organizers says you will get to see the pop and rock artists while Saturday, August 14th, festival-goers will get to see the hip hop artists.

However, whichever day you choose to attend, a general admission ticket gets you access to "the Hot Box consumption lounge."

Should you choose to get VIP tickets, the festival's EventBrite page details you will get "exclusive front viewing with secured area" as well as a gift bag and more.
