SweetWater 420 Fest is excited to announce the addition of Gary Clark Jr. to our 2022 lineup! Snoop Dogg is canceling his appearance. While we are disappointed in this decision, SweetWater 420 Fest is thrilled to host the four-time Grammy award-winning Gary Clark Jr. This will be Clark's first-ever 420 Fest appearance.

Austin-born virtuoso guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Gary Cark Jr. achieved global impact following his first Grammy Award in 2014, winning Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track "Please Come Home" from his Warner Records debut album "Blak And Blu." Throughout 2019 Clark ascended to greater heights with the release of "This Land" – his third full-length studio album, which bowed at #6 on the Billboard Top 200, marking his third consecutive Top 10 debut. Most recently, Clark won three more Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Performance "This Land," Best Rock Song "This Land," and Best Contemporary Blues Album "THIS LAND."

With six Grammy nominations, of which he has won four, the greatest heir to the R&B tradition is yet to arrive at Centennial Olympic Park. Check out Gary Clark Jr. on spotify.
