We may be stuck inside but that doesn’t mean you have to celebrate 4/20 all on your own. Whether you want to support a cause, listen to some good music, or just celebrate that great strides cannabis has made in recent years, there are plenty of online event options to choose from that will connect you to your cannabis family.
Highstream 420 Festival
Two of America’s largest cannabis-related gatherings, National Cannabis Festival and The Emerald Cup, are combining forces for a coast-to-coast online 420 festival, benefiting Coronavirus relief charities.
Starting at 4pm EST via NUGS.TV, Highstream 420 Festival will be a full day of music performances, online workshops, demos, and interactive panels. Music performances include: Melissa Etheridge, Disco Biscuits, The Pharcyde, and many more! The entire event is free, although donations to the featured charities would be appreciated!
The Chronic Relief telethon will be collecting donations to benefit the nonprofit Feeding America, which runs 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and programs across the U.S. From 1pm to 6pm MST, tune in to the livestream show, featuring musical performances and interviews with influencers and celebrities. (Make sure to watch out for Cannabis & Tech Today’s special announcement during the livestream!)

From WeedMaps comes Higher Together: Sessions from Home, a virtual 420 experience. What they claim will be the world’s biggest 420 celebration, Higher Together will feature musical performances from Wiz Khalifa, Berner, Billy Ray Cyrus, Stephen Marley, Cam’ron, and more!
