This year’s 420 in Denver may have been the livest yet. Big name national talent could be found at every venue in the city, and we were lucky enough to host the inaugural 420 On The Block, a musical celebration of our favorite plant featuring an awesome spectrum of local and national acts from all genres including headliners Action Bronson, Break Science (Live Band,) and Matisyahu. The weather was far from perfect, but a little cold and a few clouds has never stopped the party in Colorado, especially not on the high holiday! Enthusiastic fans enjoyed the well curated vendor booths, food trucks and activities, and of course the music.
April 20th has long been the day that weed smokers around the country (and world) come out of hiding to celebrate our favorite plant, puff tough, and let the government know that there are millions of otherwise law-abiding citizens who use cannabis. Ever since legalizing recreational use in 2012, Denver has become the epicenter of the celebration as host to several full on festivals, as well as a barrage of concerts around the city the entire weekend. While it would be impossible to hit every show that’s going down, we’re sure as hell going to try. Check out our weekend preview of the events we’re looking forward to the most, listed chronologically.
