Originally started as a pool party and basement show in a local musician’s rural home, BLED FEST (short for “Big Love’s Educational Festival”) has grown into a haven for local and regional music fans of all backgrounds. A self-described one-day, punk rock “summer camp”, BLED FEST has hosted acts such as Andrew WK, Every Time I Die, Andrea Gibson, Trash Talk, Modern Baseball, Title Fight, La Dispute, and The Menzingers, all wrapped into a jam-packed day of diverse music spread throughout the halls of a suburban high school-turned-community center.

Now, 15 years later, we’re saying goodbye - but not without one last party.

The final BLED FEST will be held on May 25, 2019 at the Hartland Performing Arts Center in Howell, MI. Booking inquiries, as well as sponsor and vendor submissions, are open now.
