If you like Mike Tyson, music and getting high, you’re in luck.
Tyson Ranch is partnering with Showcase Events to put on a three-day “consumable cannabis experience” known as the Kind Showcase in Desert Hot Springs from Oct. 10-12. It’s billed as a music festival and cannabis convention.
It will be held roughly eight months after the Kind Music Festival, which featured performances from Miguel, Ferg and Starcrawler on the same site.
Both festivals are on Varner Road west of Palm Drive and north of Interstate 10. Tyson Ranch plans to build a resort there whose acreage adds up to 420. That number has been associated with marijuana usage since the 1970s and today the date April 20 is set aside for people across the country to celebrate the cannabis plant.
The resort will include an indoor water park, sports arena, recreational golf complex and the world’s largest lazy river, according to a graphic shown to festival attendees in February.
“Since the founding of Tyson Ranch, I’ve been focused on building awareness of the health benefits of the plant with the general public,” Tyson, the former champion heavyweight boxer, said in a news release. “The Kind Showcase is an example of our commitment.”
Information about the festival’s lineup, vendors or tickets have not been announced.
Tyson Ranch boasts it will construct one of the world’s largest temporary structure for the October event. It will reportedly be 755 feet long, 135 feet wide and 55 feet tall.
