A primary goal of the festival organizers is to bring an outdoor festival feel to a single venue
while providing a platform for Western-Canadian marijuana activists.” – The Gauntlet

The 420 Music & Arts Festival is a Calgary-based Festival owned and organized locally. The Festival founders created the unique annual event as a medium to unite music, artists and both medical and recreational cannabis with a focus on changing common stereotypes.
Since their inaugural year in 2017, Calgary’s 420 Music & Arts Festival is three days of rad music and fuzzy vibes. The festival showcases bands from across Canada, USA and overseas ranging from stoner rock, desert rock, doom & sludge metal and kick ass rock n roll along with multiple exhibitors and vendors related to 420 culture. Past headliners have been Dopethrone, Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Vista Chino) (special guest DJ set on 420), Sasquatch, La Chinga, Wo Fat, Anciients and Black Mastiff.
