The 2016 Emerald Cup artist announcement

History will be made once again the second weekend of December when the 13th Annual Emerald Cup returns to Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, California. The Emerald Cup, now breaking into its first decade, will once again celebrate the cannabis harvest and bring the marijuana community together again. 

“we’ve seen the event and experience reach a whole new level…”

What started out as a mere 200 person event in 2003, The Emerald Cup today has matured into California’s premier outdoor cannabis growing and breeding competition with just over 20,000 attendees that will celebrate the 2016 harvest by browsing through thousands of the latest accessories, apparel, arts and crafts, and best of all enjoying the amazing music.

Co-producer Taylor Blake enthusiastically states, “The Emerald Cup has always had a strong musical element to it, and with Dan Sheehan of Ineffable Music Group booking it the past few years, we’ve seen the event and experience reach a whole new level.  Not all genres and styles fit our vibe, but Sheehan manages to curate a fluid lineup year after year, with 2016 being the most exciting to date.” 

Below is the full artist lineup produced by Ineffable Music Group.
