Well, thank you! We can’t argue with our readers’ pick here. The Blowout has been a longstanding music fest that has showcased some of Detroit’s biggest names, including the White Stripes and even a rather young Eminem. Now in its 17th year, we expanded the annual event to cover Ferndale, Hamtramck and Detroit, with hundreds of bands performing at nearly two dozen venues. Some bands of note already announced for this year’s iteration include Electric Six, Easy Action, Touch of North America, and more.
