The calendar page has only just turned, but it’s really almost that time again. That time when across the country, people will gather in open fields, beers in hand, enjoying the music of a variety of their favorite bands. Yes, festival season is nearly upon us, and if good beer and good tunes is your thing, there’s no better place to kick off the 2016 festivities than at SweetWater 420 Fest.
Held April 22nd-24th at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park, 420 Fest brings together the delicious lineup of SweetWater Brewery’s craft beers with a genre-spanning lineup of top-tier musical talent. This year, the fest’s four stages will host Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals, Ludacris, The Disco Biscuits, Kid Rock, Bastille, The Roots, AWOLNATION, Cyprus Hill, Atmosphere, Manchester Orchestra, Dawes, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Word (featuring Robert Randolph, John Medeski, and North Mississippi Allstars), Tokyo Police Club, and more.
Plus, there’s the 420 Disco featuring Paper Diamond, Emancipator, Minnesota, Illenium, jackLNDN (live), Duelle, Ployd, Lucidea, Thrice Groove, Monday/Friday, and others. And that’s not even touching upon the 420 Lyrics & Laughter Tent, the SweetWater Experience beer samplings, or the Planet 420 Earth Day celebration. No doubt, the 12th year of the event will be one of its best yet.
