In a pioneering move within the United States, a new music venue that permits the sale and consumption of both cannabis and alcohol is gearing up for its inaugural event. Located in Baldwin, Michigan, on a site formerly occupied by a driving range that has since been transformed into a cannabis dispensary, Field of Greens is set to host the "Bikers, Buds, & Brews" festival on May 18th. This unique festival will feature performances by alternative rock bands Marcy Playground and Soul Asylum, marking the first event of its kind at this location.

This event is strategically timed to coincide with Baldwin's annual Blessing of the Bikes, a unique tradition where a Catholic priest blesses motorcycles to herald the start of the summer biking season. This integration of music, cannabis, and community events underscores a novel approach to festival planning and venue management in the region.

Behind this innovative venture is Grams & Jams Productions, known for organizing the Cannabash festival in Muskegon since 2022, which has attracted prominent artists like Ludacris and Sada Baby and drew approximately 12,000 attendees in 2023. Building on its success, Grams & Jams Productions has ventured into establishing its own music venue, embracing the challenge of navigating Michigan's liquor laws. These regulations traditionally prohibit the simultaneous sale and consumption of alcohol and cannabis in the same location. To comply, Field of Greens has designed a layout that separates the venue with a fence, allocating distinct areas for alcohol and cannabis sales respectively.

In addition to entertainment, Grams & Jams Productions is launching a nonprofit initiative, Baldwin Gives Back, aimed at supporting the local community. Connie Maxim-Sparrow, the executive producer of Grams & Jams Productions, expressed gratitude towards the Baldwin community for its welcoming embrace and emphasized the initiative as a gesture of appreciation and a commitment to the community's well-being.

Field of Greens is ambitiously planning to host a series of events throughout the season, distinguishing itself from other cannabis and music festivals in Michigan. The venue, which can tentatively accommodate up to 15,000 people, will be an adult-only space, restricting entry to individuals aged 21 and over.
