It’s almost time! With Northern Nights Music Festival quickly approaching, organizers announced some ground-breaking news about this years’ fest that’s sure to change the music festival game forever.

Happening July 19th– 21ston the Humboldt/Mendocino county line at Cook’s Valley Campground, Northern Nights will be the first 3-day fest, first camping fest, and the first California sanctioned event outside of the state fairgrounds to allow recreational cannabis dispensing and consumption on-site.

With the Humboldt/Mendocino county line being the largest cannabis producing region in the country, the location in general has a deep history in cannabis with cultivation of the plant dating back to the 1960’s.

In 2016, 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. Continuing that legacy, cannabis will now be allowed in the Tree Lounge for those 21+ or medically for anyone with a valid medical card.

The lounge will have 8-10 vendors to purchase products from, including the farmers themselves; as well as CBD yoga and other cannabis infused activities taking place over the course of the weekend.

Northern Nights Music Festival is truly opening up a new chapter in American Music and is sure to inspire other music festivals across the globe as cannabis legalization spreads.

The phase 1 Northern Nights lineup includes artists such as, Big Wild, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, Rybo, Shades, Alix Perez, Lubeski, Con Brio, and plenty more.
