The fourth annual Chalice Cup is all set and will be held from July 7-9. The San Bernadino County Fairgrounds in Victorville, CA will serve as the site for the hotly anticipated event.
There are more and more events popping up in the cannabis industry and they are becoming difficult to distinguish from one another. Chalice, on the other hand, has a distinct feel. With musicians, artists, and glass blowers, the event feels less like a marijuana convention and more like a cultural gathering.
Chalice has just announced its all-star musical lineup. According to event organizers:
“The fourth annual Chalice will feature headliners Ice Cube, Thievery Corporation, Sound Tribe Sector 9 -– alongside Ludacris, Cypress Hill, Big Boi (of Outkast), Capleton, Pouya, The Floozies, Juelz Santana & Cam’Ron formerly known as Dipset, Jadakiss – Styles P – Sheek Louch (The Lox) , Berner, Warren G, King Lil G, Manic Focus, Pressure, Marlon Asher, Ghostemane, Ras Shiloh, Izac King, Buddy and Kong.”
Chalice founder Doug Dracup is excited at how quick his event is growing in popularity. Approximately 40,000 attendees are expected to make it out to the “Coachella of concentrates.”
“This year we’re setting a different standard with Chalice,” Dracup said, acknowledging that 25,000 came out last year. “We’re adding attractions and different art installations that have never happened at this kind of festival before. We’re putting a million- or $2-million lineups out there for music – and we’re spending more than $100,000 on art installations.”
Chalice tickets are $55 per day or $120 per three-day pass; VIP passes are $90-$110 per day or $240 per three-day pass. Judge kits, which include competitors’ entries and swag from sponsors in addition to VIP perks, range from $810-$910. Tickets are available at chalicecalifornia.com.
