Under the sunny Southern California skies, it just makes sense that the worlds of music, art and cannabis would come together in festival form. Such is the case when the fifth annual Chalice Festival, which also celebrates the art of glass pipe making, blows into town from Friday, July 13th to Sunday, July 15th. Performers slated to set the stage on fire that weekend include Ludacris, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and The Pharcyde.
The San Bernardino County Fairgrounds will be transformed into a musical wonderland that is sure to stimulate the senses in more ways than one. In addition to taking in the sounds of other musical acts like Sizzla, Bassnectar, Curren$y, Cut Chemist and Thriftworks, attendees will also be able to take in the sights of hashmakers and glass blowers from around the world. Past performers at the annual event include Thievery Corporation, Wu-Tang Clan and Ice Cube.
This year's festival marks the first time that it has been held since recreational marijuana usage was legalized in California. "This year's Chalice will make history in several ways," founder Doug Dracup explained in a statement. "We've always been a leader, and we plan to lead by example at Chalice 2018. We know all eyes will be on us, and we have no doubt that we will set the bar for the future of legal cannabis and its relationship with music and arts festivals."
Tickets for the three-day event start at $105 per day or $165 for a weekend pass. VIP passes, which include one-hour early entry, a private viewing area at the main stage, access to private restrooms and a lounge, start at $165 per day or $325 for the three-day weekend.
