Sublime Reunites for Smokeout


California reggae punk group Sublime announced that they will reunite – 13 years after they split – to play the Smokeout festival. Nothing like a little cannabis to bring people together.

The trio broke up in 1996 at the height of their popularity when lead singer Bradley Nowell died of a heroin overdose. Some of their most popular tracks include “Date Rape,” “What I Got” and “Summer Time.” The reunited Sublime will feature a new singer, Rome, who played with original members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson earlier this year.

Other acts at Smokeout include Cypress Hill, Deftones and Slipknot among others. The festival will take place October 23-24 in San Bernandino, CA., and will be hosted by the smoke-loving duo Cheech and Chong.

The festival’s web site describes Smokeout as “the all day mind opening music festival.” Other activities available for festival goers include a 420 movie night, glass art showcase, grow tips and the Smokeout cannabis cup and medical expo. Quite the educational weekend.
