SweetWater 420 Festival canceled for 2021

ATLANTA — COVID-19 has started claiming some of Atlanta’s top festivals for 2021.

SweetWater announced its popular 420 Fest, scheduled for April 23-25, has been canceled.

“We have been waiting patiently on the sidelines in the hopes that a vaccine rollout and health advances would allow us to gather at the level we would have liked in April. It has become painfully clear that this will not be possible. Sadly, the April 23-25, 2021 SweetWater 420 Fest is canceled,” the company announced in a release.

The company was forced to cancel the 2020 event, too.

Oysterhead, Snoop Dogg, Trey Anastasio Band, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Lake Street Dive and Lettuce were all booked for the 2020 event and then re-booked for the 2021 event.

“To all those who held onto hopes with us, we are grateful. Thank you for your support. If you purchased a ticket through the official SweetWater 420 Fest ticketing page via Eventbrite.com, you will automatically get a full refund on ticket purchase(s) (including fees and shipping, if applicable) directly to the account used to purchase. At this time we expect all refunds to be processed within 14 days,” the release noted.

“We look forward to brighter times and the chance to hug, love, and dance freely. Until then,Stay Safe! Stay Healthy!”
