From 2001-2006, the Chicago Blackout Festival was the first purely midwest rock & roll festival, celebrating the yearly release of Horizontal Action Magazine.  Each year drew sold-out, international crowds to witness the wide range of unique underground performers and to catch the best in up-and-coming bands exploding out of the underground.
