    420 Fest patrons can expect a jam-packed musical lineup ranging from jam and rock to alternative, hip-hop and EDM performing in the heart of downtown Atlanta in Centennial Olympic Park. 420 Fest signature features will return, including the tasty brews at SweetWater Experience tent, live comedy acts, local crafts & artists, food trucks, and Planet 420 environmental and non-profit village.

    3-Day general admission and ‘Big Fish’ VIP tickets can be purchased at www.sweetwater420fest.com/tickets/. 3-Day pricing remains unchanged from 420 Fest 2016 and 2017 with 3-Day general admission starting at $89 and 3-Day VIP at $243.

    It was an event to celebrate SweetWater, too. The local brewery recently celebrated its 20th anniversary.

    “The 14th SweetWater 420 Fest is well underway, and the SweetWater Brew team and I are working closely to make this Fest the best one yet! Our patrons enjoyed the double set format of our jam band headliners at last 420 Fest so we are sticking with this again this year,” said Jennifer Bensch, President, Happy Ending Productions. “I’m just as excited that we are able to keep our 3 day ticket pricing the same for the 3rd consecutive year!”

In total, 420 Fest has diverted close to 160,000 lbs from landfills by recycling, created 55,000 lbs compost, and 420 Fest Gas South Corn Hole Challenge has donated nearly $90,000 to charities.
