Cannabis license approved for Michigan’s Hoxeyville Music Festival

The 20th annual Hoxeyville Music Festival in northern Michigan will feature on-site cannabis sales and consumption for the first time this year.

Festival operator Hoxeyville Enterprises has partnered with Dunegrass Co. to offer marijuana sales at the event, and with Real Leaf Solutions to provide designated areas for cannabis consumption.

This marks the first time that an official cannabis partner has been involved with the Americana and roots music festival, which attracts over 10,000 people each year.

Cannabis use will be strictly regulated at the festival, and only those 21 years of age or older will be allowed to purchase or consume marijuana products.

With the addition of legal cannabis, the Hoxeyville Music Festival is sure to be a memorable event for years to come.

Fittingly, the license approval was granted on Wellston Township's board meeting on April 20.

Hoxeyville Enterprises says Dunegrass Co. will serve as the festival's cannabis partner in 2022 and 2023.

“We are very excited to provide this option for our attendees, and look forward to growing both this experience within the event as well as our partnership with Dunegrass,” Hoxeyville Productions' Jake Robinson said in a statement.

“Dunegrass is beyond excited to work on the first music festival turned cannabis event in the state,” Dunegrass COO Eric Piedmonte said in a statement. “Until now all we've had are marijuana festivals. This is a marijuana event at a music festival.”

The festival will offer a “designated cannabis consumption area” for attendees 21 and older. The area will feature Dunegrass Co.'s products, including pre-rolled joints, vape cartridges, and edibles.

This year's lineup includes Trampled by Turtles, Railroad Earth, the Infamous Stringdusters, and other acts. The full lineup is available at hoxeyville.com.

In Lansing, a 420 Music Festival featuring a lineup of mostly hip-hop acts was held last month. In metro Detroit, a planned “Spark in the Park” event in Hazel Park was voted down by city council due to parking concerns, with a lineup that was to mix rock, funk, and hip-hop.

In Michigan's Upper Peninsula, cannabis chain the Fire Station is planning a “Camp Cannabis” event in Marquette for Oct. 7-9. While a lineup has not yet been announced, the event will include education sessions, yoga, canoeing, and other activities.
