More than three amazing bands coming together on one stage for a great summer concert, the festival will also feature a vendor area for select participating businesses to promote their healthy, sustainable, organic and hemp products. The vendor space is committed to products that further the public knowledge of holistic living in addition to the incredible diversity and abilities of the fascinating hemp plant. Hemp can be made into anything from clothing, food products, paper and more.
The Hemp Heals Music Festival is dedicated to promoting healthy living through the use of hemp products and other natural and organic goods by reaching out to the public with a music festival promoting musicians and businesses with like-minded mentalities. All funds raised for the festival will benefit a charitable organization that is into promoting wellness by healthy living. Details to be announced.
As a professional athlete, Riley Cote uses his star power to bring attention to social and medical issues. He hosted The Cote Carnival with Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) with great success gathering thousands of fans and supporters to raise over 42K for the organization.
Cote is in the process of compiling sponsors, donors and participants for the hemp and healthy living promotional festival. Taking part in this extraordinary opportunity will help further brand recognition of participating organizations and companies to the public eye. Participating organizations will make a difference in growing the community of dissenters and the eventual rebirth of hemp farming in the US.
