Cannabis Etiquette at Music Festivals and Concerts

It’s summer and the excitement of attending outdoor concerts is in the air! We’re looking at you Bumbershoot! Music enthusiasts and festival-goers eagerly anticipate these events to celebrate the season, enjoy live music, and create unforgettable memories. With the evolving landscape of cannabis legalization, it’s important to understand how to navigate cannabis policies and etiquette to ensure everyone has an enjoyable experience when consuming at a crowded event. In this blog, we’ll delve into the dos and don’ts of cannabis consumption during concerts and festivals.


  • Know the laws and festival policies. Before you pack your bags and your bong, take some time to research the local laws regarding cannabis use. While cannabis is legal in Seattle and Washington state, other places may or may not allow recreational and medical use or have a stricter policy. Being informed helps you avoid any unwanted legal complications. 


  • Mind your surroundings. If the festival you’re attending has a designated area for cannabis use, utilize it! These spaces are established to provide a comfortable environment for those who partake. If you’re not sure if there is a designated area, find a more secluded space, be aware of families and children, individuals who might have respiratory sensitivities, and anyone else who might not appreciate the exposure to cannabis smoke. Maintaining a respectful distance from non-consumers is a thoughtful way to enjoy your experience without intruding on theirs.


  • Practice responsible consumption. Just like alcohol, moderation is key when it comes to cannabis. Know your limits and be aware of the potency. Overindulgence can lead to discomfort and negatively impact your experience. Remember that the goal is to enhance your enjoyment, not hinder it.


  • Stick to edibles and vapes. Discreet cannabis products like edibles, infused drinks, and vapes are perfect for a crowded festival. Edibles and vapes have the added benefit of not having an overpowering scent. Be careful with edibles and start slow as the effects are often felt much later on.


  • Stay hydrated and safe. Summer festivals are often hot and crowded, so prioritize your well-being. Stay hydrated and drink water regularly to ensure you’re nourished throughout the day. Cannabis can sometimes lead to dehydration or intensified effects, so being mindful of your body’s needs is essential for a great festival experience.


Attending music festivals and concerts is a great way to enjoy music, culture, the outdoors and everyone’s favorite plant. Understanding and adhering to cannabis policies and etiquette can contribute to an inclusive and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone. With these tips in mind, you’re well on your way to having a memorable festival season!
