Amsterdam, June 11 – The time table of the seventh Cannabis Liberation Day is more attractive and international than ever, artists, speakers, the biggest hemp market ever and two debates in the film tent with international speakers.
Unfortunately speakers Marc and Jodie Emery had to cancel at the last minute because of problems with their shops in Canada. Instead of Marc will speak Steffen Geyer, the man behind the Hanfparade in Berlin. Jodie’s replaced by Luc Krol, founder of Paradise Seeds and organizer of the Medical Cannabis Bike Tour, which finishes this year on Cannabis Liberation Day.
Even more reasons to come (again): extensive catering, the High Life Cannabis Cup ceremonies, Koos Zwart Award and the irie sounds of Covenant Sound System at their very own reggea & dub area. More news: sponsor Dutch Passion will build a chill lounge on the field, where you can enjoy in style from listening, hearing, smelling and tasting everything that’s going on during Cannabis Liberation Day.
Traditionally there’s a bouncy castle for our youngest visitors and a VIP lounge for VOC Nederland financial contributors and other VIP’s behind the stage. More information about the artists, speakers, films and debates can be found below the time table. Like previous editions, Cannabis Liberation Day is free to attend. Entrance at Flevopark, Valentijnkade.
Side note: In addition to being the sole driving force behind The Stoned Society, I’m also active as VOC Nederland media team coordinatior (NGO) and as market supervisor at Cannabis Liberation Day Amsterdam (organized by VOC). So you’ll be able to find me this weekend in Amsterdam!
