2021 Blues Festival COVID Update

Here’s Charlie Musselwhite, closing the 2019 Edmonton Blues Festival.

Today, with a heavy heart, we must announce the cancellation of the 2021 Edmonton Blues Festival, scheduled for late August.

At this time, there appears to be no way to hold a safe and viable event of this size in August. Many of the artists, including Taj Mahal, Ruthie Foster, Joe Louis Walker, Kat Danser, Harpdog Brown and The Texas Horns had agreed to be part of the scheduled event in August of this year.

We’ll be back for 3 days in August of 2022, putting on the best damn blues party you’ve seen for 3,000 of our closest friends each day.

All of you who had the faith and patience to hold on to your advance tickets from 2020 to use this year will see refunds in the next 10 days.

Stay tuned to this space for announcements on artists, dates and ticket availability for the 2022 Edmonton Blues Festival.
