Camp cannabis, the UP’s first cannabis centered festival is happening now. alongside some mainstream bands performing on the main stage, local Michigan bands will be performing this weekend at the one of a kind music festival.
This week, double trouble entertainment has been working to set up the two stages for Marquette’s first ever camp cannabis. the music festival will be showcasing not just national talent, but the local gems of The UP. Bill Digneit co owns double trouble entertainment, he and the other camp cannabis contributors thought it was important to highlight local talent.
So, for the local bands, we actually wanted to make sure they were represented at this national act festival. there’s a lot of representation from some really awesome bands from the up region and we’re just so excited to have them here.Bill Digneit

when we started organizing the festival it was really important to us that we dot not only some really big name acts that would draw a crowd but also to be able to spotlight all of our local musicians and bands and performers.Kelsey Potes
So much went into preparing for this weekend’s events, and all those involved are excited to finally see it come to fruition.

we’re really happy to be part of it and help educate people along with provide some quality music for the weekend.
five years ago at this time an event like this obviously could have never happened, it wasn’t even legal in the state of Michigan so there was a lot of work that had to be done to bring this event to life. there was a lot that we had to figure out so we worked with a lot of partners at the local and state government to make it come to life.Kelsey Potes
