Metro Detroit has a reputation for organizing tiny music festivals that pack a big punch. We also have a reputation for complaining about our severe and totally justifiable case of spring fever. In an attempt to free us of our winter doldrums with sonic treats for our eardrums is Ferndale’s Spring Fever music festival.

The rock-centric festival takes place over the course of three nights across four venues (all of which are within .3 square miles of one another) with more than 30 bands taking their respective stages. Spring Fever will host national headliners, including the Black Lips, Born Ruffians, Speedy Ortiz, Tokyo Police Club, Murder by Death, and She Wants Revenge. Meanwhile, Prude Boys, Tart, Siamese, and Handgrenades are among the nearly two dozen local artists slated to perform.

Ferndale Spring Fever begins at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 25, through Saturday, April 27; various venues; ferndalespringfever.com. Tickets are $25 per night or $70 for the weekend.
