Cannabis and the music industry have enjoyed a long lasting friendship. Now, these two forces of nature come together for an epic engagement on August 7 at the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The event will feature a night of B2B networking for cannabis entrepreneurs, investors, and music professionals, and is hosted as a collaborative effort between 420faithful, Dufflebag Records and Misty Mountain Tickets.
According to organizer Doug Zweber, the event offers a traditional B2B networking experience in a more relaxed, pool party setting. “We’re looking to shake up the business to business networking model for the cannabis and music industries,” Zweber said. “There’s always been an unofficial relationship between the two [industries], but we plan to take it to the next level and make each event more of an entertainment experience rather than a day of listening to stuffy industry speakers.”
The event will feature performances by Pete Rock, Talib Kweli, and Poncho Warwick. Additionally, local recording artists and media will join the performers in greeting cannabis industry leaders and their guests throughout the day of entertainment and networking opportunities. Food and drinks will be available poolside, and sponsors will be handing out samples and promotional materials in their Weed-N-Greet Suites poolside!
General admission tickets cost $30.
