Mike Tyson to host 'cannabis-themed' festival on his California ranch, complete with 'Chillville' and 'Hang Out Village'

MIKE TYSON will host a weed-themed music festival on his ranch in California this year.

The former world heavyweight champion, 52, grows the drug in the US state, where it has been legalised.

And he wants to celebrate pot with like-minded souls – even though you will not be able to buy marijuana on site.

Tyson released the news on social media, saying: "The next generation of music festival, one that embraces cannabis as a legalized recreational product, debuts in southern California on February 23rd!

"Kind music festival will be a one-day "pop-up" micro-festival event at the future site of the Tyson Ranch Resort, a 412-acre entertainment complex, luxury glamping resort and cannabis research & design facility in desert hot springs."

 The festival will celebrate the legalisation of marijuana

Tyson's grand plan includes 'Chillville', where guests will be able to relax on bean bags, as well as bars, mazes and inflatable rides.

According to a map of the site, there will also be a 'Hang Out Village' for like-minded revellers to congregate.

His festival claims to be the first to celebrate California's tolerant marijuana policies and seems to be aimed at creating a permanent fixture.

The KO king broke into the marijuana trade by opening his own cannabis ranch in California in January 2018.

He bought 40 acres of land in California City – a town with a population of just 15,000 – to the southwest of Death Valley.

Tyson has 20 acres set aside for his farm and also has his own school to teach farmers how to grow and develop their strains – called the 'Tyson Cultivation School.'
