logo - Cypress Hill SmokeoutEvent organizers, Guerilla Union, announced this week the date and headliners for the upcoming annual Cypress Hill Smokeout Festival, set to go down on March 3rd, 2012.

The annual festival will be held at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California, where Sublime with Rome and Cypress Hill have signed on for exclusive performances … with more artists to be announced soon.

The event was originally scheduled for November 2011, but things have been pushed back until next year. A press release said the move was “due to several scheduling conflicts.”

All tickets purchased during Guerilla Union’s “Early Bird” pre-sale promotion (that took place from July 16 – July 29 earlier this year), will be upgraded and honored at the new festival date.

Detailed information on ticket upgrades will be relayed to all purchasers.

This year’s Smokeout will feature a diverse line-up with over two dozen acts on several stages.

Sublime with Rome made their debut as the new musical collaboration between original members Erich Wilson and Bud Gaugh and lead vocalist Rome Ramirez at the 2009 Smokeout, and in 2012, will make their return. Following an international tour in 2010 and a new album release, Yours Truly, in July 2011, the trio will make its way back to the stage where it all began.

Festival partners Cypress Hill will be performing alongside special surprise guests.

In addition to the musical aspect, the festival is bringing back the ancillary activations that have made it the unique and ultimate-destination festival it is today. The Medical Marijuana Expo will host leading hemp industry exhibits and expert panel discussions, and the Patient’s Only Zen Garden will provide peace and privacy for California registered medical marijuana patients. There will also be a Massive Munchie Garden, interactive vendor village, and much more.

A complete list of activities and attractions will be announced at a later date.

Tickets for the 2012 Smokeout will be available soon. For more info, visit SmokeoutFestival.com.
