The Original Free Speech Protestival!

Performer submissions for 2023 Seattle HEMPFEST® are Open

Staffed primarily by volunteers, the HEMPFEST® event is free to attend and has no admission fee. Therefore most of the 100 plus acts that perform each year do so without compensation, as a contribution to the cause. There are rare exceptions when we pay a top headliner their benefit fee.

We are working hard to bring in more revenue so we can pay the world-class acts that make us so proud, but we’re not there yet. Music is a huge part of any culture, and ours is no exception. We honor the hundreds of brands and thousands of musicians who have contributed to the Seattle HEMPFEST cause over the years. It is a privilege to work with so many professionals who are passionate about their beliefs. Together we all make the HEMPFEST mission possible.
