The long-running Gloucester Rhythm and Blues Festival takes place on Saturday 27 July – Sunday 4 August at multiple venues across the city.
A mainstay of Gloucester’s Summer of Music, Arts and Culture (SoMAC), the festival is a firm favourite with live music fans, and Blues aficionados from around the region.
Local, national and international Blues artists converge on the city for a nine-day celebration of the genre with around 70 live performances across the city’s pubs and live music venues. See the latest schedule.
The Gloucester Rhythm & Blues Festival is organised by Marketing Gloucester in association with Tim Porter and supported by Gloucester City Council.
The festival is not possible without the incredible backing from the venues themselves:
The Cross Keys Inn
The Dick Whittington
The Fountain Inn
The New Inn
The Old Bell
The Station Hotel
The Tall Ship
