Blottopia had a nice long run at a single location through 2011, but since then, the only constant (besides Mr. Blotto's covers of classic albums) has been change, as they switch things up at various locations throughout the region.

The team has decided to move again for the 17th edition of Blotto's summer classic, this time to McHenry Extreme Sports and Event Park in Holiday Hills, IL.  July 15th and 16th, 2016.

It's the same great format (two nights of Blotto and full lineup of support), and as if to prove their commitment to the fans, the featured bands seem to pack an extra punch in the latest location, particularly Chicago's Cornmeal (old school favorites) and Mungion (up-and-comers).  EGi (a favorite of several of the site's contributors), Kara Cavanaugh (of Terrapin Flyer), Stampy, Chachuba & Lovers Of The Sea round out the bill.

Tickets include camping and are $90 for the weekend and $60 for Saturday only -- available online until 7/6 (cash only at the gates).

BYOB, but no glass bottles are allowed near the concert field (bring a cup...so BYOC).

More info available at the festival's website.
