How many music festivals can one town have? Apparently Detroit’s appetite for live music is insatiable. The Corktown Music Festival debuted in March, launched by music fans who wanted to keep the momentum going after the Hamtramck Music Festival had pivoted to a summer schedule due to the pandemic (which itself was launched years ago to fill the void left by the former Metro Times Blowout).

Apparently things went so well that the folks behind the Corktown Music Festival have launched a summer series, dubbed Corktown Summer Days, which will see more than 60 bands performing across PJ’s Lager House, Nancy Whiskey, The Gaelic League, and McShane’s Pub. The festival is a benefit for 4 Paws 1 Heart, a 501(c)3 nonprofit for homeless cats and dogs. (Even more good news, Hamtramck Music Festival is returning Aug. 11-14).

See for full schedule. Tickets are $20.
