Tacoma Hempfest and Shock Treatment Management are pleased to announce an open call for entertainers for the 2nd Annual Tacoma Hempfest to be held June 25, 2011. Tacoma Hempfest is a Washington State non-profit corporation which stages an annual full day celebration of the extensive utility of cannabis or hemp, and the social cost of hemp prohibition. The first Tacoma Hempfest in 2010 generated a peaceful crowd of 5,000 in Wright Park, Tacoma on the last weekend in June.
Musical performers of all genres are invited to submit Electronic Press Kits or links to social/musician sites with a selection of sample music.
Variety performers will work in a number of areas throughout the festival site including family, artist and holistic medical areas. Variety performers are invited to send an email of interest, brief description of talent and sample of past work, references, website or other appropriate details. We can imagine face painters, magicians, dance troupes, acrobats, stilt walkers, some of whom would work during stage entertainment, some of whom would provide spontaneous in crowd entertainment during breaks.
Above all, Tacoma Hempfest wishes to portray and include the diversity of cannabis culture. This includes not only arts and entertainment, but also food and merchandise vendors, outreach organizations, healing arts, and industry.
