The SweetWater 420 Fest is still a couple of months away, but fans can now purchase single day tickets to the three-day event.

You can check out the daily schedule here. Single-day tickets cost $56 and VIP are $155. A three-day general admission ticket is $123 (three-day VIP is sold out).

The event, April 21-23 in Centennial Olympic Park, this year features Widespread Panic performing four sets, the Trey Anastasio Band playing two sets and a lineup stocked with jam, rock, hip-hop and EDM artists including Ween, Slightly Stoopid, moe., Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Dark Star Orchestra, Talib Kweli, Break Science, San Holo, Savoy and more.

Beginning Feb. 6, the 420 Fest Talent Tap invites up-and-coming regional bands to submit for the opportunity to perform at 420 Fest.

Comedians Jon Rudnitsky and Jake Nordwind will headline the Lyrics & Laughter stage.

Also, the SweetWater 420 Fest app, which will be updated weekly with new information, can be downloaded now.

Fans can look forward to snagging a “Dumpster Diver” shirt made from recycled plastic; they will be given to patrons in exchange for recyclable trash collected during festival weekend.
