2009 Blowout Band Selections Going Out Today: READ THIS BLOG!


If your band has been selected to play the 2009 Metro Times Blowout Music Festival, you will be contacted within the next few days. If you have not heard from us yet, and you are hearing that other bands have already been contacted, DON'T WORRY, it's a long process.


The official schedule will be announced on SATURDAY, JAN. 31.

*After the official schedule has been released: If you still don't see your name, that more than likely means you weren't selected. If you believe there has been some sort of error, you can email us. However, it's unlikely.

Please know, things crop up and one or two slots may become available. If this occurs, we have a waiting list.

Thank you again for applying, and we want you to know that it was extremely hard making these selections. Truly. We sincerely appreciate the enthusiasm...and...we'll see you March 4-7th!
