OPEN Single Day tickets allow you to buy now and choose what day you attend the week of the festival! Perfect for making sure you don't miss out on that MUST SEE artist without having to commit to 3 or 5 days. All tickets are now on sale, and rest assured, they won't last long at the price they are at now.

Important message:

Please note that all Bluesfest tickets including 3 and 5 day options will be taken off sale soon as we prepare for our first artist announcement! When they go back on sale all tickets will be at a much higher price.

Peter Noble, Festival Directors says:


Well, the Bluesfest office is officially gearing up for 2018! We already have our first headliner offers in, and expect confirmations soon. It’s going to be another great one.

The festival will cover just about every type of music, from Contemporary to the Legends, from Jazz to Hip Hop/ R&B …. from the Roots to the Fruits, with a good dose of Blues at the base. 

We can't wait for you to see what we are working on...get ready for another HUGE year and some big surprises we know you will like...
