Organizers for the Northern Nights Music Festival announced this week that the 2022 edition of the event will be the first music festival to have dispensaries located at stages and the first to feature multiple, on-site cannabis retailers.
The event is set to take place July 15-17, 2022, at the Cook’s Valley Campground in Piercy, California.
The featured dispensaries will be scattered throughout the event and will feature “takeovers” from the industry’s top brands, according to a press release. Northern Nights was the first-ever music festival to offer onsite cannabis retail services and will maintain its primary dispensary, The Tree Lounge, as both a retail and lounge option for concertgoers. The Tree Lounge will be taking on a more rustic, farmers’ market vibe from other years, organizers said.
The event is also teasing expanded wellness programs for attendees, which include Yoga Classes, Meditation and Breathwork, Sound Bowls, Community Sharing, Education Circles, and more. The wellness programming is offered in partnership with Movement Makers Retreats and will also include “cannabis-themed activities.”
“We must be able to take time to explore ourselves, to reconnect with body+mind and the natural environment. If you’re coming to Northern Nights , you can expect plenty of mindful movement offerings along with a supportive community to help guide you on your journey.” — Nate Mezmer, Co-Founder of Movement Makers Retreats, in a statement
Tickets and additional info are available via the event’s website at NorthernNights.org.
Musical acts will include Claude VonStroke, TroyBoi, CloZee, Elderbrook, SNBRN, and more.
