CHICAGO and VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Green Thumb Industries Inc., a national cannabis company and owner of RISE Dispensaries and RYTHM Premium Cannabis, today announced the return of The Miracle in Mundelein, a two-day immersive event that merges the worlds of cannabis and music. Presented by RYTHM Premium Cannabis, RISE Dispensaries, Dayglo and Deep Cut, the second annual outdoor festival with legal on-site cannabis consumption will take place on September 7 and 8 outside of Chicago across the street from RISE Dispensary in Mundelein, Illinois.

The Miracle in Mundelein made history in 2023 as Illinois’ first music festival with on-site cannabis consumption and is returning bigger and better this year. Centered around cultivating community and the authentic connection between music and cannabis, attendees will enjoy music from Grammy-nominated hip-hop artists and growing voices in the reggae and rock space. The highly anticipated lineup of artists includes Wiz Khalifa, Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, Raekwon & GZA (of Wu Tang) with The Soul Rebels, Steel Pulse, Shwayze and DJs Ca$h Era and Papa G.

Festival-goers can expect popular cannabis-themed experiences like joint rolling stations, a cannabis beverage garden and dab bars, plus unique brand activations. Attendees can purchase products next door at RISE Dispensary Mundelein or bring their own cannabis supply subject to festival guidelines.

“The inaugural Miracle in Mundelein was brought to life by a simple thesis that many of us have known for a long time: good music plus good weed equals a good time,” said Ben Kovler, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Green Thumb Industries. “Building on the positive feedback from last year, we look forward to putting on an even better event this year with legendary artists like Wiz Khalifa and fun on-site experiences such as joint rolling contests.”

Peter Shapiro, Founder of Dayglo, said, “Last year we achieved our goal to create a new type of event that uplifts cannabis in a legal environment, while also supporting and growing a real community. We received such positive feedback from attendees about the ability to consume freely while enjoying their favorite artists and feeling an immense amount of normalcy around public consumption – something we see as the future of weed and live music. The anticipation around year two is electric and we are thrilled to deliver on another Miracle in Mundelein!”

Michael Berg, Founder of Deep Cut, added, “Following the successful debut of The Miracle, it was clear that our vision had resonated deeply with the community. In our inaugural year, we set out to show to the world we could have a music meets consumption event in a safe, responsible and reasonable way. The fans showed up to help us prove that it’s not only possible, but that the future of that intersection is now. In 2024, we are back with an unbelievable lineup of Grammy-nominated artists who honor and build upon the canna-friendly music scenes of Hip Hop, Roots, Rock, Reggae and Jam worlds. These artists’ fanbases authentically celebrate cannabis culture and embody what The Miracle is all about.”

The Miracle is held across the street from RISE Dispensary Mundelein, located at 1325 Armour Blvd, Mundelein, IL 60060. The event is strictly for individuals aged 21 and above, with cannabis purchase available in-store at RISE Dispensary Mundelein and consumption permitted on the festival grounds.
