Video of past year's 4/20 Smokeout at CU's Campus video
Alright so most of you are probably aware of annual weed smokeout that takes place on CU's (University of Colorado) campus on April 20th (4/20) at 4:20pm. There's speculations of over 15,000 people all gathering to smoke weed. This started as a marijuana protest and after years and years it has become more of a giant party. I've been the past few years, and it's always been quite an experience. Check out the video above to get an idea. The event has gotten way too big and the school doesn't like that so they are going to extra measures this year to ensure that this won't happen. They are not allowing any guests on campus on April 20th (4/20), and have cops checking ID's of everybody getting on campus. To give the students something to do, they will be offering a free concert at Coors Event Center on campus. Read more below!
The concert will feature Wyclef Jean, Cris Cab, and locals TTF and Sun Squabi. If the smokeout is really cancelled, this seems like the best alternative, but it is for students only and they will be checking ID's at the door. Good news is since they have so much security guarding the field, looks like the concert should be smoke safe.. That would probably be national news, "University of Colorado turns smokeout to school ran concert smokeout". Just kidding CU, don't worry, this is a great idea! If you are a student you don't want to miss this, and if you aren't then get ready for Levitate Festival featuring Rusko, Dj Shadow, Paper Diamond, Pictureplane. Check out a track from Wyclef Jean and Cris Cab, two of the artists playing below as well. Enjoy!
