Broadstairs Blues Bash

Broadstairs Blues Bash is a FREE Blues music festival which is now into its eighth year. It takes place annually in mid-February in the Victorian sea-side town of Broadstairs in Kent, England, UK. In 2015 we put 45 local, national and international Blues acts into 14 venues in the town and the festival attracted several thousand people. Due to this year’s success, 2016 promises to be even bigger and better with more venues and acts coming on board. Broadstairs has a vibrant exciting music scene and with small intimate wine-bars, friendly pubs and bars, larger pubs and one ticketed (250) venue with two huge headline acts (Friday AND Saturday night), it is the ideal town for a Blues festival. The Broadstairs Blues Bash attracts high quality performers, so if you’re a fan of old Blues, new Blues, GREAT Blues, this festival is definitely one not to miss.

All the pub & wine bar gigs over the whole weekend are FREE entry and we aim to try and keep it that way, so here’s how you can help – Come along, buy a programme, a badge, mug & a T-shirt and spread the word….
