Medical marijuana company Etain is hosting an outdoor music festival in Saugerties on July 2 – Daily Freeman

SAUGERTIES, NY – Etain Medical Marijuana Dispensary will host “Under Over Fest” on July 2 at Upstate Farmhouse at 996 State Route 212.

The first outdoor music festival will feature eight live performances on two stages with genres spanning bluegrass, folk, soul and electronic dance music.

Bands featured on the main stage include Olivia K and the Parker, Jillette Johnson, Marcus Rezak’s Shred is Dead and the Under Over Family Band.

On the River Stage, Bill features performances by Skippy and Sloane, Uncle Sam Bridge, Alright People and Special Guests

Then Beet Boys will provide a late mix.

Organizers said the festival will also highlight some cannabis staples for music festivals.

Organizers said there will be a “Tin Garden” for those 21 and over where people can learn about medical cannabis, eligibility requirements and even register for a medical cannabis card onsite. . Etain has a store at 445 State Route 28 in the city of Ulster.

“Enjoy an afternoon in the sun by the river on the property to cool off and sample local craft beers and natural wines,” said an announcement for the festival. “Bring your own cooler for yourself or to share, and spread coverage to connect with old friends and meet new ones.”

Organizers promise festival-goers the chance to explore the 100-acre farm with views of Overlook Mountain at their leisure, check out several art installations, immerse themselves in a sound bath, or grab a bite to eat from a few local vendors.

Amy, Hillary and Keeley Peckham, the founders of Etain, announced in March that they were selling the company to Canadian cannabis acquisition and investment firm RIV Capital for $247 million. State lawmakers at the time promised a full regulatory review of the transaction.

Etain was one of the first five companies to receive a “Medical Marijuana License in the State of New York”. It is one of the 10 licensed vertically integrated operators in New York, according to RIV Capital, which means it is involved in all aspects of the product chain. Etain also operates dispensaries in Manhattan, Yonkers and Syracuse.

Tickets are $75 until June 26, then $100 plus an $8.14 fee thereafter and can be purchased at https://bit.ly/3HTfxwk.
