Miami's 4/20 Party Guide
Say hello to Puff the Magic Dragon.
Roll a blunt, light it up, take a puff, and pass it down. It's 4/20, man.
And in honor of the national weed holiday, we here at Crossfade have provided you with the best places to go and smoke a fat one, jam with THC-drenched party people, and laugh at your own two hands.
Just check out Miami's six best 4/20 parties.
Four Twenty Fest and Voter Registration. With Pages and the Out of Hand Band, Greenhouse Lounge, Bodhisattva, Fly Machine, Johnny Two Cords, DJ Hank Justice, Killa Ochosiete, Nlyte, the Lived, Chico V, Not Spices, Akira, Blank Check, Fresh-Air Florida-Band, the Crude Brood, Making Pearls, Ornimental, 1000 Pounds of Thrust, Flowtly J aka Observe N Learn J, Katabatik, Köcosanté, and Nekromaniak. Saturday, April 20, 8 p.m. Tobacco Road, 626 S. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-374-1198; tobacco-road.com. Free before 9 p.m. Support the medical marijuana movement in Florida and register for the upcoming November vote. Once you fulfill your civic duties, chill out to the weedy vibes of Greenhouse Lounge, Bodhisattva, Köcosanté, and other herb-loving bands. Later in the night, show off your blunt-rolling skills for a shot at winning 100 ganja bucks.
Two-Day Medical Marijuana Benefit Gathering. Saturday, April 19, 10 p.m. with Drbblz, Warp9, Afro Monk, Zak the Blak, the Galactic Effect, Skinny Hendrix, Blunts Over Everything, Wassa, [SMK]DRO, and others, and Sunday, April 20, 3 p.m. to 4:20 a.m. with the Funky Nuggets, RYTHMadix, Elastic Bond, DJ Care, Beat Thief Inc., and others. The Nest, 62 NE 14th St., Miami; 786-766-2411; thenestmia.com. No cover, but a $10 donation is suggested. Unlike other 4/20 smoke-outs of the past, this year's bashes are more than just about smokin' a doobie. At the Nest, Miami's potheads will unite to raise money for United for Care in order to help legalize weed for, um, "medical use" in Florida. The two-day benefit kicks off with the 420 Countdown on Saturday and ends with a barbecue cookout on Sunday. There will also be a free CBD dab lounge, hemp products, stoner-friendly drink specials, and food to satisfy those munchies.
420 Fest-ovis. With Jared Cole and others. Sunday, April 20, 12 a.m. Wynwood Warehouse Project, 450 NW 27th Ave., Miami; 305-576-1106; wynwoodwarehouseproject.com. For the past decade, Fest-ovis has been a 4/20 must. This year, it's going down at the Wynwood Warehouse Project where Jared Cole will be spinnin' trippy tunes for 24 hours straight. But if you'd rather throw your own backyard pot fest, the bash will be streaming live on universemiami.com/untv.
Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em 4/20 Show. With Vivid Illusion, Divided Heaven, By Default, Bullethorn, Apocalyptic Assault, Kief Demon, Pariah, and others. Sunday, April 20, 6 p.m. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com. $5 to $10.
