It's that time of year again, when hundreds of heathens and maniacs descend upon Chicago for a long weekend of rock'n'roll-fueled debauchery at ye old Empty Bottle. That's right, you hot freaks, it's the HoZac Blackout Fest, and it's going to be on our home turf for FOUR NIGHTS from May 16-19!! Start preparing your soon-to-be-blown minds (and livers), cause this year - like every year - we're bringing out all the stops. [Empty Bottle]

As discussed, HoZac Blackout Fest will be taking place at the Empty Bottle from May 16-19 this year. They've just announced that Mike Rep + Tommy J, Negative Scanner, Chrome, Wizzard Sleeve, Cop City, Chill Pillars, FNU Ronnies, Verma, Dwight Twilley, Pezband, GAMES, and many more acts TBA will be performing throughout the weekend. Four-day passes and individual tickets for each show are on sale now. Oh yeah, and that's the festival's amazing poster up above.

More acts TBA.
