When you think 4/20, you think weed. And if you think weed—let's admit it—at some point, Willie Nelson will enter the picture. So naturally, the country and cannabis icon is celebrating this year's extremely unusual shelter-in-place weed holiday with a huge star-studded and entirely self-isolated celebrity extravaganza. 

The full lineup was revealed in a tweet posted to the singer's Luck Reunion ("An anti-festival that inspired an experience-driven community. Willie Nelson is our landlord.") Twitter account.

Nelson acknowledged the event, a live stream which will last 4 hours and 20 minutes, in a video in which he said, "Happy 4/20 out there, y’all. Y’all have a hit for me, and pass it on."

Stars slated to appear include musicians Kacey Musgraves, Billy Ray Cyrus, Angel Olsen, Toby Keith, and Ziggy Marley. Non-musician guests—some noted for their friendly relationship with cannabis—include Matthew McConaughey, Tommy Chong, Jeff Bridges, Bill Maher, and former presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.

The stream will be broadcast on the Twitch page of Nelson’s Luck Reunion festival and it begins today, April 20, 2020, at 4:20 p.m. CST (5:20 p.m. Eastern).
