Let’s be real: Any music festival commemorating 4/20 shouldn’t have Snoop Dogg holding down the festivities. Coloradans have seen more than enough of the weed-loving caricature he’s become in recent years.

While we’d like to think the fresh blood picked for this year’s Denver 420 Rally was because of a wizened organizer, the truth is that Snoop was, of course, already committed to another Denver 4/20 event. Barring him (and probably a call in to Sampson Simpson), the next logical choice is Wiz Khalifa and Lil Wayne.
Mr. Black-and-Yellow and Lil Weezy are no strangers to the cannabis game. Wiz has been known for his affinity of the herb, despite a recent interview with Reverb intimating he doesn’t want to be thought of as a stoner anymore. By the look of his latest album, “Cabin Fever,” Khalifa has tossed that flight of fancy out the window.
Lil Wayne most recently joined up with Denver Broncos’ MVP Von Miller on his celebration tour post-Super Bowl 50 and is readying his long-advertised, crazy-anticipated “Tha Carter V.”
The big smoke party takes place April 16, the weekend before 4/20, at Denver’s Civic Center — from 10 a.m. on. Admission is free, but it’ll cost you to get close. For more information, head over to 420Rally.com.
