Bled Fest announces full lineup, topped by Black Dahlia Murder, Knuckle Puck, Kevin Devine

1745

Every year since 2005, Michigan-based concert promotion company Fusion Shows has spent their Memorial Day weekend packed in the Hartland Performing Arts Center with the likes of 1,500 excited, tired, sweaty, music-loving individuals and more than 70 touring and local bands and artists that share the same passion. And, every year, they have the best time doing it. The event has come to be known as BLED Fest, and has become a staple of the mid-Michigan music scene for nearly a decade.

Today, the festival announced their complete lineup. After spending every day of February announcing the first 29 acts through Free Ticket February, a guessing game played on the festival’s social media accounts, the festival has unveiled the rest of the bands playing this coming May. Among this year’s highlights are equal parts heavy (The Black Dahlia Murder), pop-punk (Knuckle Puck, pictured), softer (Aaron West & the Roaring Twenties & Kevin Devine), epic (The World is a Beautiful Place), and everything in between. You can find the full lineup below.
