NORTHERN NIGHTS RETURNS FOR 2ND ROUND AT THE 15TH ANNUAL EMERALD CUP

 
 

Northern Nights presents the Redwood Stage and Tree Lounge

Featuring: STS9, Big Gigantic, Gogol Bordello, Protoje, Jay & Silent Bob, & Willie Nelson

Regenerative Organic Cannabis Including Sales & Consumption

SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA - December 4, 2018 - The team behind Northern Nights Music Festival (“NNMF”) returns to Santa Rosa in collaboration and support of the 15th annual The Emerald Cup, on December 15th & 16th, for the largest, most respected, organic, outdoor, cannabis competition in the world.

Rather than your typical mid-grade parking lot cookie cutter weed event, “The Cup” brings an eclectic mix of influencers that include Willie Nelson, Big Gigantic, Jay & Silent Bob, Gogol Bordello, David Bronner, Protoje, and STS9 together with the California’s top tier legal cannabis producers and brands, with a extra emphasis on the California sungrown, regenerative and organic experience.

For a second year in a row, the Cup has once again given NNMF the nod to produce its own stage, officially and fittingly dubbed the Redwood Stage, which will feature Dirtybird member & NN18 show stopper Ardalan, hip hop artist/indigenous environmental activist/youth director of Earth Guardians Xiuhtezcatl, internationally acclaimed tropical bass heavyweight Captain Planet, and UK artist Breach coming from across the pond, to name a few.

More than just a music festival, Northern Nights prides itself as a staple in the Northern California culture, where the “city meets the country”. This is no better highlighted than in the infamous Northern Nights Tree Lounge, which showcases the best and the brightest of The Emerald Triangle’s farmers, manufacturers, and brands with distributors, retailers and entrepreneurs from around the Golden State. The Tree Lounge at this years Emerald Cup, located in the cannabis consumption area, will include HF Raw & Uncut, HumFarms, Wildseed, Focus Concentrates, Wonderland Nursery, Node Labs, Heshies, Cali's Finest and will be hosted by the One Log House and powered by Meadow. This will be the last and final Tree Lounge production before the recently passed assembly bill AB2020 goes into effect, which will allow festivals held on private property, like Northern Nights, to have on site cannabis sales for the very first time.

About Northern Nights Music Festival: A celebration of music, art, cannabis, food, and Northern California culture, the annual Northern Nights Music Festival (NNMF) takes place every third weekend in July. NNMF has created it’s 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. Since the inception, NNMF has cemented it’s place among the ranks of the many acclaimed music festivals that have converged along the Eel River over the past 30 years, from Jerry Garcia’s Electric on the Eel to Reggae on the River.

Re-Imagining How Festivals Incorporate Cannabis

Northern Nights Music Festival Announces Experiential Cannabis Activation

On July 20-22, 2018, Northern Nights Music Festival will kick off a 3-day one-of-a-kind festival experience blending cannabis history, education, and entertainment located on the Humboldt and Mendocino County Line, the epicenter of the Emerald Triangle. The festival is known for its strong musical lineup; 2018 artists include Emancipator, Thomas Jack, Sage The Gemini, Mr. Carmack and a Dirtybird Records Takeover Friday night in the Redwoods. 2018 also marks an important era for the Emerald Triangle - an end to the cannabis prohibition in California. Taking pride in these original roots, festival founders Andrew Blap & Peter Huson have teamed up with dozens of California-based dispensaries and local Humboldt farms to expand on the existing Cannabis history programming, which will take place in two select areas: NN Tree Lounge and VIP.

The NN Tree Lounge, which debuted at Northern Nights Music Festival 2016, was the first-ever official designated area for on-site consumption of medical marijuana at a music and art festival in California. The area features the Emerald Triangle premiere cultivators and manufacturers, and hosts top tier dispensary buyers and distributors from all around the Golden State. The 2018 edition returns to Cook’s Valley after its successful maiden voyage with new partners The Emerald Cup. “A big part of our brand ethos is community - this festival would be nothing without the support of local partners. We want to give cultivators, dispensary owners, and industry leaders every opportunity to learn more about each other, and get exposure to their target demographic at Northern Nights,” said partner Blap. Programming is education-driven only, based on Proposition 64, there will be no onsite sales if and until AB2020. This year, participating brands include Humboldt’s Finest Raw & Uncut, General Extractions, Madrone California, Guild Extracts, Humboldt Brothers, Talking Trees, Rising Source and Rise Logistics.

To ensure the NN Tree Lounge is filled with like-minded people and to invite the next generation, NN has been activating new networks with the partnership of dispensaries in the cities. These dispensary activations have a goal to gain recognition of Emerald Triangle cannabis while giving farms exposure to their target demographic at Northern Nights. The festival is creating a farm-to-dispensary relationship before the festival by offering two festival tickets for $215 ($429 value) with the purchase of $100 worth of Mendocino or Humboldt County products at these participating dispensaries: Mercy Wellness Cotati, Telegraph Health Center (THC), Medithrive, Shambhala, Green Remedy Collective, Hi Fidelity, Magnolia Oakland, Caliva, Natural Herbal Pain Relief, One Log, and Area 101.

Premiering this year is an elevated VIP experience hosted by four partners, Emerald Exchange, WyldeHeart Ranch, Redwood Roots, and World Famous Productions. Programming here is vibe-centered, weaving cannabis with unique experiential activities, full stocked bar, Happy Hours with local treats and drinks, therapeutic massage, teas, herbal remedies, and workshops. Get there early and sign up to be one of the few to go on guided cannabis farm tours in the area.

About Northern Nights: Northern Nights Music Festival is a 3-day festival tucked amongst the towering Redwoods and winding Eel River on the Humboldt and Mendocino County line. Attendees can immerse themselves in yoga, art, cannabis, and music across the festival grounds. Acts include a Dirtybird takeover (Justin Martin, Ardalan, Walker & Royce, Worthy B2B Option4), Thomas Jack, Emancipator, Mr. Carmack, Gina Turner, Sage The Gemini, Brasstracks, Brownies & Lemonade All Stars, Naughty Princess, Jack Beats, and many more.

5 Reasons to #MakeTheJourney

Northern Nights Music Festival will be making its way home to The Redwood-lined Eel River for its sixth year on July 20-22. The boutique camping festival, which boasts alum including Odesza, The Polish Ambassador, and Gorgon City Live just dropped its 2018 Phase 1 Lineup and it did not disappoint. The carefully-curated lineup features takeovers from both Dirtybird and Brownies & Lemonade, and names like Thomas Jack, Sage the Gemini, The Emancipator, and more. Big names and up-and-coming artists will take over stages including The Grove, Bunker Stage, and the late-night Silent Disco for an unforgettable three days.

And if the music alone isn’t enough to convince you, we’re sharing 5 reasons why you should #MakeTheJourney to one of Summer's most-anticipated music festivals.

THE EEL RIVER AKA THE CALIFORNIA NILE

1 of only 3 rivers in North America that flows South to North, California’s third largest watershed snakes its way through the festival grounds of Northern Nights, but its size isn’t why it has topped our list of reasons to #MakeTheJourney. The Eel River is home to the festival's River Stage, the most popular installation while the sun is shining. The stage echoes a variety of genres throughout the days and pays homage to the music that brings the community together, Reggae Music, on Sunday with a Tropical Vibez featuring the best local and international dancehall, soca, tropical bass, moombahton and booty-shaking music, while attendees soak up the sun in the river or escape to the shaded dance floor. Be sure to bring your sunscreen and your favorite floatie and join the #RiverFam.

TREE LOUNGE

Northern Nights is proud to be a pioneer in the way music festivals incorporate cannabis in its historical and natural setting, The Emerald Triangle. As one of the first and only festivals to have a compliant pot component in past years, the festival is redefining the stigma around marijuana. In April, Northern Nights announced a partnership with both the Emerald Cup and Star Hill, which will mean this year's Tree Lounge is going to be bigger and better than ever. And with pot now legal, we can only imagine what this partnership will bring to attendees.

THE BUNKER STAGE

Last year was the debut of the Bunker Stage, a new addition to the NNMF campgrounds. Tucked into a massive hill, the Bunker Stage is a natural amphitheater that overlooks the river and gazes into the starry night. This year, we can expect the Bunker Stage to host headliners late into the night in a renegade style. As lights bounce off the hill and into the sky, the setting creates more of a late-night after-hours vibe. Bring out your furry jackets and be sure to say hi to the goats as you head up to this new immersive experience.

BURLESQUE

In between yoga or acoustic sets from NNMF headliners, The Grove hosts an amazing Burlesque show that is a must-see. As the sun sets on the festival, The Grove is transformed into a seemingly alternative universe of music, comedy, and dancing. Body-positive burlesque dancing captivates attendees as the ladies use different interactive themes to energize the crowd.

GetTiny_NNMF2016_0717_9561-JLB.JPG

THE MEMORIES

As cliche as it sounds, the best part of Northern Nights is the memories you hold onto and friends you make that last a lifetime once the festival is over. Whether it's lounging in the hammocks or playing a pick-up game of kickball in the Fun Field, your heart will truly feel full of love and happiness the entire weekend. The Redwoods have become home to many love stories and blossomed friendships that stay with you once the weekend of magic ends.

About Northern Nights Music Festival

A three-day celebration of music, art, food and local culture, the annual Northern Nights Music Festival (NNMF) takes place every third weekend in July, this year falling on July 14th-16th. 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 and 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.

On July 14-16, Purple Couch will implement a new experience at Northern Nights Music Festival and build the “Purple Nights” Art Gallery. Within our gallery will be the works of 15 incredible glass artists and several visual artists, mostly whom reside in California and several local to Humboldt.

Featuring Norcal legends: Mr Gray, Tristan Hodges, Vela G, Domer, Piper Dan, Domino, and Bishop. 

Featuring touring artists: White Monkey, Wicked Glass, Jameson, Jacob Jarvis, Josh Pixl, Nick Elledge, and Robo Glass.

These glass artists were chosen for their unique designs and many years of dedication to their craft. The Purple Couch team has spared no expense planning this gallery build, and we will be showcasing glass art in a professional manner like it has never been seen before at any music festival. 

"Purple Nights" Art Gallery will be located across from Grove camping, next to the pond.
