SweetWater announces small, intimate venue, lineup for 420 Fest

Shakey Graves, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Ghostland Observatory, Rome & Duddy, and Neal Francis will perform at SweetWater’s 420 Fest in April this year.

SweetWater Brewing Company, Atlanta’s craft beer trailblazer and the 10th largest craft brewer in the U.S., announced details for this year’s SweetWater 420 Fest, which will take place on April 22-23.

This year’s event is at SweetWater’s Atlanta brewery.

Weekend and single-day tickets are on sale now.

“SweetWater 420 Fest started as a homegrown festival to celebrate Mother Earth in an intimate space and was inspired by the motto, ‘We’re here for a good time, she’s here for a long time.’ This year’s party will have similar vibes to those early editions with a give-back component to our Georgia Waterkeeper groups, a celebration of local artists, and a much more intimate gathering that goes back to the root of who we are,” said Anna Krakovski Ferro, SweetWater’s Director of Marketing.

SweetWater will transform its Ottley Drive brewery into a unique venue with both indoor and outdoor stages. Food will be available from local vendors who have been long-time friends of the brewery, as well as from the taproom, SweetWater will be serving a limited food menu, and their signature beverages will be available all festival long.

“Live music is as vital to our culture as making heady beer,” says Mike Boudreaux, SweetWater’s Director of Hospitality. “While the shift in venue will limit capacity, we anticipate this intimate edition of 420 Fest to be one for the books. Safety and nonstop music are our top priority for this 420 Fest, and bringing the festival to the brewery will be incredibly special.”

Along with SweetWater 420 Fest’s headliners, the event will also feature performances by Sunsquabi, Kitchen Dwellers, Doom Flamingo, Neighbor, The Vegabonds, The Stews, Maggie Rose, Fireside Collective, Robert Jon & The Wreck, and Consider The Source. Additional bands include: Khaliko, Hotel Fiction, Tall Tall Trees, Happy Landing, and Wolf Mask.
