It is with a very heavy heart that we have to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Edmonton Blues Festival. With the CoVid 19 Pandemic still all around us it is impossible to stage the event this year and maintain the safety of all of our blues fans, artists, volunteers and all the others associated with the festival. We urge you to support blues musicians any way you can… buy their music and donate to their online concerts. Whatever you can do to help will make our return in 2021 (August 20 to 22) a real celebration! If you have purchased a ticket for the festival you’ll be getting an email regarding refunds.
The 22nd annual Edmonton Blues Festival continues to bring you the best in blues. Grammy winners, Juno winners, Maple Blues Award Winners, Blues Music Award winners, IBC winners, newcomers and bona fide legends all make their way to Edmonton each summer to create “Blues Heaven” in the sonically superior and party friendly Heritage Amphitheatre. This year, we’re bringing back some of our most requested acts and continuing our tradition of introducing new performers to the Edmonton area. Blues Hounds who come from around the world and musicians who do the same all say…”this festival is what we wish all blues festivals were…an intimate, well run, world class celebration of the music and its’ fans…” Don’t miss it August 28 to 30 in 2020
