The Detroit enclave of Hamtramck’s annual music festival is back, with dozens of local artists across more than 20 venues packed inside two square miles. Like our former Metro Times Blowout festival, the Hamtramck Music Festival is a chance to catch local artists before some of them inevitably blow up, and in recent years, the festival has moved from its typical March date to a new summertime setting. This year’s fest features acts like Zilched, Audra Kubat, Gabriel Brass Band, and the Amino Acids, among many others.

From Thursday, Aug. 11-Sunday, Aug. 14; multiple locations; see for more information. Wristbands are $25.
