Cannabis Liberation Day

Cannabis Liberation Day 2018

The biggest cannabis and hemp event in The Netherlands!

The 10th Cannabis Liberation Day will take place on June 17th 2018, 2pm till 10pm. The event is free as always. On Cannabis Liberation Day we celebrate the international cannabis culture and show how much good this plant has to offer. Cannabis Liberation Day calls for tolerance and widespread use of hemp as durable resource and challenges the criminalization of the plant, the cannabis consumers, coffeeshops and cultivators.

10th ANNIVERSARY

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Cannabis Liberation Day in style, look forward to a spectacular musical lineup and world-class speakers from three continents, including Ed Rosenthal, The Dagga Couple and Doug Fine. Visitors can take part in the Cannabis Olympics, consisting of 5 fun disciplines including Bungee Run and Mega Sjoelbak. The first 500 participants receive a unique Cannabis Liberation Day medal.

PROGRAM

In addition to the stage program with artists, speakers and DJs from home and abroad there is a big Hemp Market, a Cannabis University in collaboration with Cannabis News Network (with debates masterclasses and workshops), a Vape Lounge and two mouth watering food and drinks areas.

HEMP MARKET

At the Hemp Market, cannabis- and hemp related companies and organisations will present themselves and their -legal- products.

Non-profit organisation can rent one stall for free.

HISTORY

Since 1999, in the first week of May protests and festivals are organised worldwide in support of legalizing cannabis, under the name Global Marijuana March. Because there were none of these activities in Holland, in 2009 Foundation VOC Nederland decided to organise Cannabis Liberation Day.

Since 2014, Cannabis Liberation Day takes place in the Flevopark
