Noted pot-lover and American Idol runner-up Jena Irene Ascuitto is booked to perform at the 20th annual Ford Arts, Beats, and Eats festival this Labor Day weekend. She's one of only three local musicians who'll take the Michigan Lottery National Stage, which is otherwise reserved for national acts. She'll perform on Monday, Sept. 4 at 4 p.m.

The singer will perform alongside a lineup the festival calls "unparalleled," including 311, the B52's, Grand Funk Railroad, George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars, Candlebox, the Wallflowers, Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, Jordan Davis, and Dwight Yoakam across the festival's multiple stages.
The festival's six other stages will feature an amalgam of local artists from various genres including the Orbitsons, Thornetta Davis, The War and Treaty, Drew Hale, Avalon Black, and King Mellowman. The other two local bands to join Ascuitto on the National Stage stage are Your Generation in Concert and Half Light Music.

A full line up is available here.
