The Emerald Cup Announces Full Artist Lineup // Stick Figure, Tribal Seeds, Dirty Heads, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Kabaka Pyramid, Raging Fyah & more!


SANTA ROSA, Calif., Aug. 17, 2016 /Weed Wire/ — The 13th annual Emerald Cup proudly announces its full artist lineup produced by Ineffable Music Group.  The Emerald Cup will take place at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA from December 10-11, 2016.  This year’s impressive lineup combines the best talent from the progressive reggae community with Stick Figure, Tribal Seeds, and Dirty Heads alongside Jamaican reggae torchbearers Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Kabaka Pyramid, Raging Fyah, and more.  Full artist lineup is listed below.

The Emerald Cup, founded by Tim Blake in 2003, is California’s premier outdoor organic medicinal cannabis competition for growing and breeding.  What started as a small passionate 200-person event at Blake’s Area 101 property has blossomed into today’s most prestigious organic cannabis competition that Rolling Stone calls “the Academy Awards of the cannabis industry.”  The two-day event sees over 20,000 attendees partake in industry leading panels, interact with innovative vendors, while immersing themselves in a carefully curated musical experience.

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.”

Music booker Dan Sheehan adds, “The Emerald Cup and the organic cannabis industry continue to grow at an exponential rate, that parallels the roots music community.  The synergies between music and cannabis are so cohesive that I’m proud to bridge the two communities together at such a pinnacle event.”

Now in its 13th year, The Emerald Cup prides itself in bringing together experts and educators in the cannabis field from fellow farmers, patients, and patrons each year. It is a community celebration that has grown to become a global movement honoring the year’s finest, organic, sun-grown, medicinal cannabis harvest.  More details and tickets can be found at
