Hosted in the “Emerald Triangle” of California, which is known for the flourishing cannabis industry in the state, Northern Nights Music Festival has announced a unique expansion for this year’s edition of the festival.

Paying homage to their location on the borders of the Humboldt and Mendocino Counties, they have unveiled a very positive stance on cannabis this year. Doubling their efforts in helping further the cause of breaking the stigma and prohibition on marijuana, they are not only providing education regarding cannabis but a safe haven for those who use it too. If you’re a medical marijuana patient this is definitely a festival that is helping your cause.

This year, NNMF unveiled that they will be expanding their Medical Marijuana Zone to a massive “Tree Lounge” inside the festival. Featuring educational information, on-site doctor recommendations, cannabis sampling, interactive installations, and even meet-and-greets with some of the headliners. The Cannabis Tree Lounge highlights Humboldt, Mendocino and Northern California cultivators that have perfected their trade over the years. Additionally, there will be plenty of activities ranging from yoga to massage therapy with cannabis-infused oils for you to experience.

About Northern Nights Music Festival:

Now entering its fifth year, NNMF has created its home along the South Fork Eel River at Cook’s Valley Campground, 3.5 hours north of San Francisco at the intersection of Mendocino and Humboldt counties. With a passion for celebrating emerging underground music and featuring the most sought-out producers and DJs from around the globe, the luminaries behind NNMF, San Francisco-based BLAP Productions, nd Humboldt’s World Famous Productions, first came together in 2013 to achieve their vision. As their vision – and the festival – grew, the team welcomed production houses EPIC (Chico), Burningleaf Productions (Humboldt), Eye Heart SF (San Francisco), and Euphoric Styles (Santa Cruz), who collectively strive to sustain NNMF as a premiere destination experience.

Offering attendees a unique opportunity to fully embrace a truly Californian experience. Aligning with the history and tradition of previous festivals in the region, a portion of NNMF proceeds from ticket and beverage sales are donated to the Mendocino and Humboldt school districts, nonprofits, and environmental groups.
