Mike Tyson’s newly acquired cannabis ranch will be the backdrop for yet another major California music festival.

The former heavyweight boxing champ has announced that the first Kind Music Festival will take place Feb. 23 at the Tyson Ranch Resort, reports the Press-Enterprise.

According to the event’s official website, Kind Music Festival will earn “the distinction of being the first-ever all-ages music festival that embraces California’s updated cannabis regulations and offering alcoholic consumption to those 21+.”

Although the music lineup is expected to be announced Jan. 2, the festival already boasts features that include food trucks, a “Chillville” with 100 specialty bean bags, a fun zone with inflatable rides, obstacle courses, mazes, bar area and a vendor village.

Kind’s publicist Kelly Walsh told the Desert Sun that attendees will be permitted to smoke weed on festival grounds, although California regulations forbid cannabis to be sold at events.

Tyson first broke ground on the Tyson Ranch Resort in early 2018. The Kind Music Festival will be the first major event to be held at the venue located in Desert Hot Springs.

Presale tickets can be purchased online for $55.
