Festival Celebrates The Best In Hip-Hop And Marijuana

Later this month, thousands will converge on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds to sample some of America's finest hip-hop, rap, reggae - and medical cannabis.

According to organizers, the aim at the High Life Music Festival is to "recognize California's premier MMJ growers, breeders, edible chefs and extract artists" as well as hosting some seriously dope acts including Rick Ross, Waka Flocka, Bone Thugs N Harmony, and Yo Gotti. With that kind of lineup, and 300+ cannabis vendors, there's likely to be a fragrant, zen haze over this event.

Vendors and producers will also have a chance to compete in four categories, including Best Flower (with sub-categories of Sativa, Indica, Hybrid), Best Concentrate (Sativa, Indica), Best Edibles, Best Tinctures, Best Topical, Best Vape, Best New Product, and Highest THC: more details on how to become a vendor or enter the competition here.

To ensure you and your entourage enjoy the show in high style style, the VIP Cabanas facing the main stage have leather couches, bottle service, and premium goodie bags with products donated by vendors.

Although anybody can come to the concert, you'll need a need a medical marijuana card to enter the festival's Prop 215 medicated area. Happily, the festival organizers have thought of everything: you'll be able to pick up a card at the event for $40 - $60.

Sound perfect to you? The High Life Music Festival runs August 20-21 in Victorville, CA. Get tickets here, from $40 for one-day general admission, to $110 for a two-day VIP pass.
