Seattle Officials Want Hempfest Moved Joe September 7, 2010 Activism, Best Of The Best, Exclusive Web Content, Hemp, Politics Officials in Seattle – worried about Hempfest’s massive size, and I suspect it’s reputation – want the cannabis festival moved from its current annual location. Finding a spot for 200,000 people won’t be easy to say the least – but I’m sure if Seattle decides they don’t want Hempfest anymore, there will be plenty of cities lining up for the opportunity to be the host. - Joe Klare darkcycle Hempfest has to move. 200,000 people don’t FIT in Myrtle Edwards park. I didn’t make it this year, but last year it took over an hour to make the crawl 1/4 mile from the entrance to the HighTimes Booth. And 4:20 was locked solid. If an ambulance had to make it to the main stage, it wasn’t. No Way. I saw Vivian McPaek that day and his main headache was crowd control. Seattle ain’t gonna give up the ‘fest, don’t ya all worry. We need a bigger venue! PabloKoh Not ONE arrest!
