SPRING GATHERING 2011 will feature live performances by SNOOP DOGG, CYPRESS HILL, Travis Barker with Mix Master Mike, Stephen Marley, Dilated People, Collie Buddz, Tha Dogg Pound with a special tribute to Nate Dogg plus more to be announced. SPRING GATHERING’S ambassadors, Dr. Greenthumb (B Real of Cypress Hill), Tommy Chong, Snoop Dogg and special guest Shelby Chong, will host the day-long festivities.
Festival organizers Guerilla Union have also announced an exciting partnership with music artist, Snoop Dogg and technology company, WeedMaps.com, further solidifying B Real, Tommy Chong and Guerilla Union’s mission to create a platform for compassion, activism and education for the entire medical marijuana community.
B Real states, "We are thrilled to have Snoop Dogg join our partnership. He is an icon in music and medicine. His commitment to Spring Gathering solidifies our vision with Tommy Chong, and myself. You can count on us to bring innovative ideas that continue to shape this movement."
Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union also shares his excitement, "We have been looking for a technology partner that would make an immediate impact with our music and medicine platforms. WeedMaps’ combination of web optimization, community, and content will help us power the future of this platform."
In addition to the music portion, the festival will also offer a full day of activities and attractions to further educate and drive awareness toward the ever-changing social and political landscape surrounding medical marijuana. The WeedMaps Medical Marijuana Expo @ Spring Gathering will play host to advocates, non-profit organizations, medical marijuana collectives, eco-friendly exhibitors and more. While visiting the WeedMaps MMJ Expo, fans will be treated to a full schedule of expert discussion panels, celebrity guest appearances, speakers and meet and greets. In addition to sharing hosting duties, B Real, Tommy Chong and Snoop Dogg will also participate as special guest speakers at the WeedMaps MMJ Expo.
Guerilla Union and WeedMaps have also teamed up to launch The Spring Gathering Cannabis Classic (http://www.TheCannabisClassic.com), hosted by Tommy Chong. This new platform, which will take place at SPRING GATHERING, was created for medical marijuana patients to commemorate their favorite collectives, products and strains of the season. Patients will also be able to recognize activists and artists in their communities who have helped bring integrity, compassion and progress toward marijuana reform. All registered WeedMaps users will receive a Cannabis Classic eBallot in their inboxes with their chance to vote for their favorites of the year!
Following the unprecedented and successful implementation of onsite medical marijuana consumption at the Cypress Hill SmokeOut 2010, Guerilla Union and the Medicine and Music Project have announced the second ever integration of onsite consumption for medical marijuana patients at SPRING GATHERING. WeedMaps will have a dedicated area of the Patients Area for hosting their own private members party. Patients will be treated to vaporizers, free WeedMaps gifts, rolling papers and customized WeedMaps name-tags with their username and avatar. A complete and comprehensive list of procedures and regulations for festival attendees is available online at http://www.springgathering.com. Festival organizers urge all attendees to carefully review all protocols and prerequisites prior to attending the festival.
