Now in its fourth year, Hamtramck Blowout has become the single largest and most diverse showcase of local Detroit musicians. Rock, blues, folk, hip hop, punk, rockabilly, metal and electronic are all represented during the three days of the festival.

Hamtramck Blowout 2001 offers music lovers the chance to see some established favorites as well as a slew of talented up and comers. Roughly 80% of this year's lineup are first time Blowout participants.

All access wristbands are only $10 and are good for all three days of the festival. They will be available at all of the venues beginning Thursday, March 8 at 8pm.

As in previous years, a portion of the proceeds from Hamtramck Blowout will benefit the Motor City Music Foundation, a tax-exempt organization honoring Detroit Musicians working on a national, regional and local level. The MCMF is the organization that produces the Detroit Music Awards.

Volunteers are needed for this year's Blowout. If you would like to donate your time please click here or call 313.202.8051
