Live Nation have announced that BluesFest will return to the Royal Albert Hall this autumn for an extended six-day event, which will once again feature an array of international stars from the worlds of blues, soul, jazz, R&B and beyond.
Now in its fourth year, and widely regarded as one of the highlights of the live music calendar, BluesFest made history in 2013 when it relocated to the Royal Albert Hall and became the iconic building’s first ever full-scale music festival.
The four day event was a resounding success, with over 40,000 music fans enjoying an incredible run of shows from the likes of Robert Plant, Ronnie Wood, Bobby Womack, Van Morrison, Gregory Porter, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Mavis Staples, Chris Rea and many more.
This year’s festival will feature a similarly world class line-up as evidenced by the first batch of headliners, which includes the return of one of the most indelible artists of the 20th century, the legendary Van Morrison (October 28). He'll be joined by Georgie Fame (Oct 28 - 29), songwriting icon Elvis Costello (October 29) and multi-Grammy-winning singer Sheryl Crow (October 31).
This year’s festival runs from October 26 - 31. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, April 4, priced from £20 upwards (subject to per-ticket charge plus order processing fee) and are available from Livenation.co.uk, Ticketmaster.co.uk or RoyalAlbertHall.com.
