SweetWater 420 Fest Cuts Half Its Lineup Including Headliners Beck And Slightly Stoopid

Posted by

Atlanta’s SweetWater 420 Fest was supposed to have Beck and Slightly Stoopid headlining, plus dozens of other acts including Black Pumas, Moe., Cory Wong, and Houndmouth. However, the festival has now announced that those artists are no longer performing, and ticketholders will receive refunds.

SweetWater 420 Fest will still happen at Pullman Yards on April 20 and 21, but will now feature about half of its original lineup, and it will now be free instead of the original $245 ticket price. The lineup now has Gov’t Mule and Big Gigantic promoted to headliners, plus Grace Potter, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Larkin Poe, Andy Frasco & The UN, Connor Clark & Blue Rhythm Revival, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Little Stranger, Papadosio, and Hedonistas. On Instagram, the festival shared the statement:

Heads up, party people: SweetWater’s changing up the lineup and cutting ticket prices for this year’s SweetWater 420 Fest. We’re taking a trip back to our roots and will be hosting a more intimate festival that’s focused on killer jams, heady brews, and supporting our long-time friends at the Waterkeeper Alliance, who are fighting to protect clean water around the world.

General Admission to 420 Fest will now be FREE, with a $10 donation to the Waterkeeper Alliance.

This new format will be a return to 420 Fest’s roots, with many of our favorite bands playing on a single stage to support a crucial environmental mission.
