Cannabis & Music Festival on tap for July 29 in Detroit!

The Detroit Metro Times shares that the Motor City Roots Festival will take place Saturday, July 29 at Detroit’s Russell Industrial Center in Detroit:

The cannabis & music festival will include performances by Detroit rappers Babytron and Babyface Ray, a cannabis industry awards show, and “The Weedbar,” a live podcast that will engage attendees with a sprawling conversation about the cannabis and music industries.

Other performers include Lit LB, Antonio Brown, Matashia, and Primitiv Cannabis founders (and former Detroit Lions) Rob Sims and Calvin Johnson. Shiest Bubz and Willy J Peso will serve as hosts.

“We are thrilled to bring together the best of Detroit’s music talent and the cannabis industry in one spectacular festival,” Motor City Roots founder Chris Roberson, a Detroiter and also a former NFL player, said in a statement. “Motor City Roots Festival aims to showcase the rich cultural heritage of our city while embracing the growing cannabis movement. This event is a platform to celebrate local artists, inspire connections, and foster a sense of community.”
