In response to recent state legislation that allows people to carry firearms in public parks, Georgia’s SweetWater 420 Fest has chosen to relocate for the safety of festival goers. Previously held at Centennial Olympic Park and amassing over 30,000 people, this year’s festival will be a cozier affair held at SweetWater Brewery in Atlanta.
“While the shift in venue will limit capacity, we anticipate this intimate edition of 420 Fest to be one for the books,” said Mike Boudreaux, SweetWater’s Director of Hospitality. “Safety and nonstop music are our top priority for this 420 Fest, and bringing the festival to the brewery will be incredibly special.”
Trading in the jam bands and big name headliners for a more modest indie-folk and synthwave lineup, artists like Doom Flamingo, Ghostland Observatory and Rome & Duddy will play across three different stages, taking place alongside hands-on, Earth Day workshops on sustainable living. There will be a limited food menu as well as food from local vendors throughout the weekend. Keep it boozy with SweetWater Brewery’s signature drinks including their strong spiced Festival Ale and infamous 420 Pale ale.
