Over 100 bands included in Hamtramck Music Fest 2018 lineup announcement

Posted By on Mon, Jan 15, 2018 at 10:48 AM


Now in its fifth year, Hamtramck Music Fest returns in 2018 to fill Hamtramck with four nights of local music starting Thursday, March 1. For one weekend bands from all over Michigan will take over the town and perform in Hamtramck’s dive bars, music venues, and PLAV halls.


The 2018 artist lineup was announced on Sunday, Jan. 14 in a post on the HMF Facebook page. More than 200 Michigan-based bands applied but these names made the cut, including Craig Brown Band, Drinkard Sisters, Mango Lane, and Mexican Knives.


For the price of a $10 wristband, guests can roam Hamtramck for three days and nights of live music. If you’re in need of a new favorite local band, this is your festival to find them.


Here is the lineup for this year’s festival with venues and set times to be announced later. Did your favorite local artist make the list?
