Past de Dutchey pon de left hand side! Nas and Damien Marley will be part of Cypress Hills’ annual West Coast Smoke out at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California on October 16th.
In addition to acts by Incubus, Slightly Stoopid, Atmosphere, Manu Chao, DeadMau5, MGMT, ‘unhooked’ and Cypress Hill themselves, the festival will also serve as a platform for Cypress Hill to express their support for the legalization of marijuana for medical usage. Musicians from all over will also descend on Cali to rock the stage in preparation for November’s vote to legalize marijuana for recreational use in California.
“The SmokeOut exists to protect medical marijuana patient’s rights and we encourage our fans to go to AmericansForSafeAccess.org to learn how they can make a difference,” B-Real said. “There are a lot of artists on this year’s show that we love and respect. I can’t wait to see all our fans, friends, and family back at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino.”
According to Chad Weisberg, Guerilla Union’s Founder, another lineup of artists will be announced in the near future.
“The Smoke Out is one of Guerilla Union’s most successful live music artist partnerships and this year’s show may be our most important and historic ever. It represents our company’s independent spirit and passion for creating unique live experiences,” said Weisberg. “It’s truly an honor to work with Cypress Hill and all of this year’s world-class artists. SmokeOut is not only a well respected music festival, but also a platform for compassion, activism, and education for the entire medical marijuana community.”
Tickets to the Cypress Hill Smokeout 2010 will go on sale on August 12th at 10:00 AM PST.
