The Waldo's Music Festival Sponsorship The Waldo's Music Festival Sponsorship Document Transcript

  • Sponsorship Opportunities THE STORY The Waldos were a group of young adults in California that had to hide their cannabis usage, so they came together – often at 4:20 pm – to smoke cannabis prior to it being legalized. The day has managed to become something of a na- tional holiday in the face of public condemnation. This year’s 4/20 is an historic date and symbolizes our culture stepping away from the wall. It is the culmination of an 80-year struggle for cannabis to transition from the black market to a socially acceptable pastime and medical standard. It also became the inspiration for naming this evening of celebration and music as the 1st Annual Waldos Music Fest. THE EVENT Native Roots Apothecary and Dixie Elixirs are thrilled to launch this series of festivals in Colorado to kick off its first legal 4/20. The event will be celebrating the “growing” industry and showcase the new cannabis commu- nity. We’re expecting 3,000 attendees at the Fillmore Auditorium, one of Denver’s best concert venues. THE LINE UP MATISYAHU When Matisyahu emerged in 2004 with his debut album, Shake Off the Dust... Arise, his musical persona seemed a novelty to some. Here was a Hasidic Jew -- dressed in a black suit with a broad-brimmed black hat worn over a yarmulke, and sporting a full, untrimmed beard -- who nevertheless performed toasting raps about the glories of traditional Judaism over reggae beats in a dancehall style directly from Jamaica. Moreover, he punctuated his performances with stage diving. It may have seemed like a joke at first, but Matisyahu was seri- ous about his craft, and his diverse style soon garnered Grammy nominations, gold record certifications, and a broad audience. His second studio album – Youth - appeared in 2006 and was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Reggae Album. In late 2011, the singer posted a picture with a shaved head and payes cut with the caption, “No more Chassidic reggae superstar.” As such, his 2012 effort Spark Seeker was more secular pop. He is currently touring in Germany and his latest release – Akeda – will drop in June. TALIB KWELI The Brooklyn-based rapper earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years. He travels around the globe as one of rap’s most in-demand performers. The result of his recent artistic growth and exploration arrives with Kweli’s latest – the dynamic Pris- oner Of Conscious AKA P.O.C., an artistic tour de force that signals the start of the next chapter of Kweli’s remarkable career. CONGO SANCHEZ Musician extraordinaire, Congo can generally be found in one of two places. If he’s not on the road drumming with DC’s own, Thievery Corporation or See-I: he’s jamming out to fresh vibes at the mysterious Lillypad stu- dios. He is developing a unique blend of Afro-Latin Dub, as he evolves in to his own on the DC music scene.
