via All Hip Hop
Hip-Hop group Cypress Hill has announced a partnership with Guerilla Union to re-launch the annual Cypress Hill Smokeout.
The two-day festival and “cannabis expo,” which launched in 1998, will return after a six-year hiatus this October, at the San Manuel Amphitheatre and festival grounds in San Bernardino, California.
Headliners on the Cypress Hill Smokeout include Slipknot, Sublime!, Deftones, Redman and Method Man, Cheech and Chong, all original members of the Goodie Mob and a reunion-set featuring the original Geto Boys, consisting of Willie D., Scarface and Bushwick Bill.
“It's a stoner's dream come true,” B-Real told AllHipHop.com of the festival. “Our fans deserve an event that celebrates our love of music and marijuana culture. It’s gonna take two days to take it all in. I can't wait to play some new music and hang with all our friends and fans."
In addition to the aforementioned performers, festival goers will see performances by Hieroglyphics, Immortal Technique, K’Naan, Living Legends, Devin The Dude, Swollen Members with Moka Only, Afrika Bambaataa, Mixmaster Mike, Kottonmouth Kings and others.
