Published Apr 20, 2020We're currently living in an era where music festivals are downright impossible, but thanks to the magic of livestreaming, we'll still get to watch Willie Nelson and his friends show us their love of marijuana on 4/20.
Nelson will host a weed-themed festival called Come and Toke It today on Twitch. The variety show will last for four hours and 20 minutes (obviously), and you'll never guess what time it starts — 4:20 p.m. CT.
Come and Toke It will feature appearances from Matthew McConaughey, Jeff Bridges, Kacey Musgraves, Billy Ray Cyrus, Toby Keith, Tommy Chong, Ziggy Marley, Aaron Lewis, Kevin Smith, Elle King, Nathaniel Rateliff, Shakey Graves, Bill Maher, Angel Olsen, Lukas Nelson, Margo Price, Charlie Starr (of Blackberry Smoke), Edie Brickell, Kevin Morby, Patterson Hood, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Caamp, Jack Ingram, Billy Joe Shaver, Nick Thune, Nancy and Beth (Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt), Hiss Golden Messenger, Langhorne Slim, Tim Love, Beto O'Rourke, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Micah Nelson (Particle Kid), Marcel Vigneron, Spike Mendelhson, Mason Hereford, Steve Deangelo, Waylon Payne, Lily Meola, Billy Wayne Davis, Jimmy Webb, Folk Uke, Wayne Hoffman and many more.
"Come and toke it with me on 4/20 at 4:20," said Nelson in a statement. "There will be music and good times. And, it's for a good cause."
Proceeds from the stream will be donated to the Last Prisoner Project, which aims to free all prisoners who are serving time on cannabis-related charges.

Nelson is set to release his new album First Rose of Spring on July 3 via Legacy. First Rose of Spring is his 70th album and follows 2019's Ride Me Back Home.
