Kickass music bill also features Akrobatik with Dub Apocalypse, Dutch ReBelle, and DJ Slipwax


Even during the pandemic, Boston Cannabis Week never fell off. As Co-founder Lisa Finelli Fallon told the Dig last year

“Going into year two, we had a lot of ideas of what we were going to do. [But after COVID struck], we did a full week of virtual programming. I said to [Co-founder] Scott Bettano, If we get a thousand people, I’ll be shocked, because everyone is over virtual. We ended up getting almost 30,000 attendees for the week. So we started to get more attention nationally, even all over the world.”

Now, they’re back again, and even stronger. With Common topping the music bill with a live band, plus heavyweights Curren$y, Roc Marciano, and the Alchemist also coming in from out of town. 

BCW has always held it down with New England artists as well, and this year they are bringing Dutch ReBelle, DJ Slipwax, and Akrobatik, who will perform with Dub Apocalypse. 

Plus there are loads of other events leading up to the big party under I-93 at Underground at Ink Block. More from the BCW team below …
