This initiative reflects our commitment to creating an inclusive environment where families can experience the magic of Bluesfest without worrying about the extra expenses.


Imagine your child’s eyes lighting up at their first live performance, dancing with abandon to their new favorite band, or discovering a love for music that lasts a lifetime—all while you enjoy the music without the stress of additional costs. By offering free tickets for kids, we're making it easier for families to share these priceless moments together.


We understand the importance of family time, and by removing the financial barrier for children under 10, we're inviting families to come and create beautiful memories together.
