The bright lights of Los Angeles won’t be the only things lighting up in Southern California on April 20; 2018 marks the first year California will celebrate the de facto pot holiday as a state with legalized recreational marijuana. That's right Californians: You can finally try pot.
Fittingly, the City of Angels will offer up several stoney concerts and events around the hemp holiday. Here’s a quick look at the best of 420 concerts in Los Angeles:
Getting greens on the 420 festivities is BROCKHAMPTON. The Texas-bred, LA-based hip hop collective hits The Novo By Microsoft on April 17. The danky dance party gets underway on April 19 with Soulwax and Moon Boots (Live) at the Fonda Theatre and the El Rey Theatre respectively. 420 proper continues at the El Rey with the heady hip hop of Moneybagg Yo.
The centerpiece of the LA area’s 420 celebration is The Smokers Club Fest, and festival goers had better be on their game if they want to hang with this club. The two-day smoke fest will see performances by Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Lil Pump, Juicy J, Trippie Redd, SOB X RBE, Curren$y and many more. The Smokers Club Fest goes down on April 28 and 29 at the LBC's Queen Mary Ship & Park. You can listen to tunes from these seasoned veterans by clicking here.
Closing out the high holidays in California are the California Cannabis Awards. The CCAs--taking place at the Novo on May 18--will feature a performance from Bay Area rapper Berner. You can find a list of LA area 420 festivities with date, venue and ticket info below.
