Swanage Blues and Roots Festival

Over 100 musicians perform at 60 events in 15 indoor venues. 

There’s superb music, drinking, eating, dancing, fun and laughter across the town and beyond, starting on Thursday evening and going on till late Sunday evening.

Regular fans say they love the friendly atmosphere and the wide range of electric and acoustic music available in the pubs, restaurants and hotel bars. Aspiring performers can take part in the Electric Jam sessions, Open Mic sessions and Stan's Blues Jamboree too.

Swanage Blues Festivals are essentially Big Town Parties that depend on festival fans buying weekend wristbands, currently £10, to show they appreciate the music and want the festivals to continue. Many of the bands usually charge £10 admission per gig, so £10 for the whole weekend (or part) must be a bargain!

•Swanage Blues – the big blues parties on the south coast!
•15 indoor venues! 30 acts! 40 performances!
•Open mic, jam sessions
•Acoustic, electric, rural and urban blues
•Purchase of a £10 weekend wristband ensures a warm welcome in the venues and access to promotions, incentives and discounts in some of the local shops, pubs and restaurants too. Some venues will require wristbands to be shown. Order yours now to avoid disappointment!
