BledFest - Expired Event

Location Hartland Performing Art Center

Howell, MI 48843
May 26, 2018 - May 26, 2018 1

From BledFest Website:

The festival, which started as a pool party and basement show in a local musician's rural home
called BLED FEST (short for "Big Love's Educational Festival"), has become an institution for
local and regional music fans of all shapes, colors, and orientations. It's like a one-day,
punk-rock summer camp. We've hosted such acts as The Wonder Years, Andrew WK, Every
Time I Die, Eisley, Trash Talk, Attack Attack, Modern Baseball, Title Fight, and last year featured an
album play from headliner La Dispute, a rare appearance from Michigan-based Bear vs. Shark,
and a rowdy set from The Fall of Troy, wrapped into a full day of diverse music spread among 6
stages throughout the building.
In 2018, we want to double down on our call for diversity. The listening habits of youth in 2018
are so diverse, yet a lot of these kids live in an area that is one of the least diverse places on earth.
We're really pushing to put together a special lineup that speaks to everyone, is welcoming of
everyone, and is valued by everyone. And as per the usual BLED FEST ethos, we'll do it 100%
substance free for the day.
If your organization would like to partner with us or get involved in BLED FEST in any way,
please, don't hesitate to contact me at or (810) 772-9447.
