THE Weed Blog Is Giving Away A Pair Of Tickets To The 2011 Spring Gathering And Medical Marijuana Expo In San Bernardino, CA June 11th
Spring Gathering established itself in 2010 as a premier lifestyle destination celebrating music and activism, and the second installment will feature a powerful lineup that continues to blend the worlds of music and cannabis culture.
Spring Gathering 2011 will feature live performances by Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, Travis Barker with Mix Master Mike, Stephen Marley, and Collie Buddz, with more artists to be announced. Spring Gathering’s ambassadors, Dr. Greenthumb (B Real of Cypress Hill), Tommy Chong, Snoop Dogg and special guest Shelby Chong will host the daylong festivities.
Festival organizers have also partnered with Snoop Dogg and technology company WeedMaps.com, further solidifying B Real, Tommy Chong and Guerilla Union’s mission to create a platform for compassion, activism and education for the entire medical marijuana community.
“We are thrilled to have Snoop Dogg join our partnership,” B Real said. “He is an icon in music and medicine. His commitment to Spring Gathering solidifies our vision with Tommy Chong and myself. You can count on us to bring innovative ideas that continue to shape this movement.”
“We have been looking for a technology partner that would make an immediate impact with our music and medicine platforms,” said Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union. “WeedMaps’ contribution of web optimization, community, and content will help us power the future of this platform.”
In addition to the music portion of the show, the festival will also offer a full day of activities and attractions to further educate and drive awareness toward the ever-changing social and political landscape surrounding medical marijuana.
The WeedMaps Medical Marijuana Expo at Spring Gathering will host advocates, nonprofit organizations, medical marijuana collectives, eco-friendly exhibitors and more. While visiting the WeedMaps MMJ Expo, fans will be treated to a full schedule of expert discussion panels, celebrity guest appearances, speakes and meet-and-greets.
In addition to sharing hosting duties, B Real, Tommy Chong and Snoop Dogg will also participate as special guest speakers at the WeedMaps MMJ Expo.
Guerilla Union and WeedMaps have also teamed up to launch the Spring Gathering Cannabis Classic, hosted by Tommy Chong. This new platform, which will take place at Spring Gathering, was created for medical marijuana patients to commemorate their favorite collectives, products and strains of the season. Patients will also be able to recognize activists and artists in their communities who have helped bring integrity, compassion and progress toward marijuana reform.
Following the unprecedented and successful implementation of onsite medical marijuana consumption at the Cypress Hill SmokeOut 2010, Guerilla Union and the Medicine and Music Project have announced the first integration of onsite consumption for medical marijuana patients at Spring Gathering. A complete list of procedures and regulations for festival attendees is available online at www.springgathering.com. Festival organizers urge all attendees to carefully review all protocols and prerequisites prior to attending the festival.
Tickets are available to the general public online via Ticketfly.com and at key retail locations. Spring Gathering will also be streaming live, courtesy of B Real TV on Saturday, June 11. The live stream will feature artist performances, exclusive backstage content and artist interviews throughout the show.
