Sweetwater 420 Fest Cancels 2021 Edition

After postponing its 2020 festival to April 2021, Sweetwater 420 Fest has announced that its 2021 edition (as well as the accompanying 5k Road Race) have been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. The festival was set to take place Apr. 23-25, 2021 in Atlanta, Ga.

“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,” wrote the festival when announcing the cancelation. “It has become painfully clear that this will not be possible.”

“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,” continued the announcement. “At this time we expect all refunds to be processed within 14 days.” The festival provided more information on refunds on its website.

The festival was set to be headlined by Oysterhead and Trey Anastasio Band, with performances by Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Snoop Dog, Lake Street Dive, Tank and The Bangas and more. Earlier this month, Oysterhead canceled their Apr. 17 show at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, Calif. (originally scheduled for Apr. 17, 2020).
