Northern Nights Cannabis Festival 2019!

Okay, you got us, it’s Northern Nights MUSIC Festival, but TheMashUp had to add the cannabis parody- especially because the cannabis will be roaring LOUD this year! Did you know, that you can now legally buy recreational cannabis at this 3-Day camping music festival!? Come join the range of cannabis activation at the NN Tree Lounge and VIP. The NN Tree Lounge, which debuted at Northern Nights Music Festival 2019, was the first-ever official designated area for on-site consumption of medical marijuana at a music and art festival in California.

Comparable in style and scale to a beer garden, the Tree Lounge represents the industry’s evolution into mainstream lifestyle events while staying true to the region and culture where it all began for California, Southern Humboldt, and Northern Mendocino. The Tree Lounge staff members will be presenting this area to demonstrate how to educate consumers in a fun, safe, and social way at events across the country and around the world. Join us for comedy, surprise DJ sets, artist meet-and-greets, and daily chats from farmers, collectives, and the Twister Trimmer team.
Smoke a bowl in the main bowl to headlining artists such as Crooked Colours, The Funk Hunters, Lubelski, Desert Hearts, and Big Wild- expect even more amazing acts and experience the magic of music, swimming and dancing amidst one of the most sought out destinations in the world – the California Redwoods.
Spring is here and California’s Emerald Triangle is more stunning than ever. It’s just months before Northern Nights Music Festival plants its roots once again for three days on the region’s historic Cook’s Valley Campground. With the festival growing nearer organizers announced today that NNMF is making history in 2019 as both the first-ever three-day music festival and the first-ever overnight/camping music festival to allow recreational cannabis dispensing and use on-site in the country. The festival is hosting an area where permitted brands will be able to come in and sell their product under their license.

That’s not all, though. Northern Nights 2019 also marks the first California sanctioned event with cannabis concessions outside of a state fairground — and where better to host the celebration than at the Humboldt / Mendocino County Line, the largest cannabis-producing region in the country. This news marks the start of a new chapter in American music events. By giving attendees the opportunity to legally buy and consume cannabis on-site, Northern Nights truly is the future of festivals, daring to embrace what the likes of Coachella and other California music festivals have yet to in light of the passage of AB 2020.

The Emerald Triangle has always been known for producing some of the country’s best cannabis, even being referred to as the Napa Valley of Cannabis. It makes sense considering the location has a deep history in cannabis with cultivation of the plant dating back to the 1960s. Jumping forward to today — a new era of cannabis — the Northern Nights Tree Lounge was the first-ever officially designated area for on-site consumption of medical marijuana at a music and arts festival in California in 2016. The festival continues this proactive legacy today with another landmark announcement for cannabis legalization. In an interview with Billboard on the announcement, festival co-founder Andrew Blap said, “In the Tree Lounge, we are going to highlight the history and the culture and the small [cannabis] farmers of Humboldt and Mendocino counties.” By embracing the cannabis lifestyle, the Northern Night’s forward-thinking ethos is sure to inspire music festivals in the US — and across the globe — in the near future as legalization sweeps the land.

Cannabis use will be allowed in the Northern Nights Tree Lounge recreationally for anyone who’s 21+ and medically for anyone with a valid medical card. The lounge will have 8-10 cannabis vendors to purchase product from, including the farmers themselves so festival guests can purchase directly from the source and spark up educational conversations. The vendors will include local dispensaries and brands brought in by the festival.

CBD Yoga and other cannabis-infused activations will take place over the course of the weekend. The NN Tree Lounge is also equipped with its own stage so, yes — you can legally smoke and watch live music this year. The interactive lounge — one of six venues at the festival — is the pinnacle that makes Northern Nights the experiential event of the summer for those passionate about music and cannabis. Bring your friends and leave your weed at home for once — we got you.

Tickets are on sale now with VIP and camping upgrades which are also available as extra perks.

Music. Camping. Redwoods. River. Yoga. Cannabis. You don’t want to miss out! I’ll see you all this weekend as we venture into the woods!
