The legalization of recreational marijuana is nearly one year old, but music festivals have been celebrating cannabis consumption for years. Many marijuana friendly music festivals call Las Vegas their home and even more 420 events more take place on the West Coast.
The following are a few of the most popular marijuana friendly events in and near Las Vegas.
The most recent music festival to bring in the pot smokers was Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in sunny Las Vegas. This event is one of the biggest electronic dance music festivals in the world, with venues in California, Florida, Japan, Nevada, New York, Mexico, Texas, and more. In 2017, EDC drew over 400,000 people to Las Vegas over the course of three days.
With annual shows in Seattle and Las Vegas, Hempfest is another big event that has made its way around the country. Las Vegas HempFest celebrated its 5th anniversary November 2017. At the 3rd annual Las Vegas Hempfest, Las Vegas ReLeaf attended the event, promoted products, and our very own Jake Morgan performed a guest DJ set.
The Northern Nights music festival is one of the many smaller EDM festivals happening around the country. While this is not a Las Vegas 420 event, it’s right next door in Northern California. This festival experience provides unique lodging opportunities such as camping and glamping.
While this is not a music festival, it’is the king of all marijuana friendly festivals and deserves an honorary mention.This event truly is a city in the desert averaging nearly 70,000 attendees over the last three years. This unusual festival experience includes giant pieces of artwork, with the 60-foot tall Burning Man at the center, electronic music, radical inclusion of all guests, and many other inclusive experiences.
These are just a few of the most popular marijuana friendly music festivals happening this year. These 420 festivals have been around for years, attracting marijuana proponents from all walks of life—from potheads to medical patients, there is something for everyone to enjoy with other like-minded folks.
