PHOENIX, Ariz., — Award-winning counterculture festival Buds-A-Palooza announces its return to Phoenix on April 19, 2024 for its third annual celebration by Bud’s Glass Joint, a locally-owned and operated Arizona head shop. 

Following successful events from the last two years, the 2024 Buds-A-Palooza will feature some of the top reggae bands from around the country, hilarious performances from Laughing Gas Comedy, classic stoner film showings, captivating presentations from Arizona’s best glass blowers, The Munchie Mall with various eats and sweets, and a large selection of local vendors’ arts and creations. 

“The last two years have been incredible, and we can’t wait to take this year’s event to the next level,” said event organizer Bud Meister. “Phoenix is home to so much great lifestyle, arts, and culture, and we are excited to bring people together to celebrate it all.”

Notable musical acts at this year’s festival include The Hip Abduction, an energetic five-piece with a shared love for West African and early Jamaican reggae/dub music; Shwayze, a rapper, actor, and musician with billboard chart topping singles like “Corona & Lime”; iconic reggae rockers, Kash’d Out; the rebellious Eli-Mac, who combines island music with R&B and hip hop; and Herb N’ Life, Phoenix’s own reggae rockers. 

Presented by Trulieve and Harvest, and named “The Best 4/20 Celebration in Arizona” by Weedmaps and Leafly, Buds-A-Palooza will highlight southwest counterculture just a day before the cannabis-centric 4/20 holiday. Other sponsors for the award-winning event include OGeez! Brands, Sneakers, Arizona Natural Concepts (ANC), and the Egyptian Motor Hotel.
