Broadstairs Blues Bash is a FREE Blues music festival which is now into its twelth year. It takes place annually in mid-February in the Victorian sea-side town of Broadstairs in Kent, England, UK. In 2020 there were 81 local, national and international Blues acts in 21 venues in the town and the festival attracted several thousand people. Due to this year's success, 2021 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, 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.
