In perhaps the most appropriate 4/20 announcement ever, the Newport Folk Festival has announced that the legendary duo Cheech & Chong will play the 2018 Folk Festival in Newport, RI.
Cheech & Chong are a Grammy Award–winning comedy duo consisting of Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong who found a wide audience in the 1970s and 1980s for their films and stand-up routines, which were based on the hippie and free love era, and especially drug and counterculture movements, most notably their love for cannabis.
Cheech & Chong will join the lineup on Saturday, July 28th.

Cheech & Chong are still smokin’ after 40 years together.
Once again, the Newport Folk Festival is the best music fest in the country. So put that in your pipe and smoke it!
