Having been to over 18 of the Blues Fests since its inception the best thing about it is the discovery of hot new artists which one would have overlooked had it not been for the Festival.
Forget about being disappointed in some "name" headline act, seek out the lesser ones who
offer a true Blues Fest experience.
Artists in the "discovery" category, before they were known would be:
Ben Harper, John Butler, Junior Brown, Hot Club of Cowtown, Paladins, Jake Shimabokuru,
Little Charlie and Nightcats, Ruthie Foster, Gabriel Y Rodriguez, etc....just to name a few.
Enjoy

This will be my first Fest :) All the stars aligned so that I could get tickets and go.. As soon as I heard Bob Dylan. Ben Harper. BB King. I knew I HAD to go. But it's gonna be absolutely incredible being around all that great music for 5 days! Can't wait!!

Kungy is right on the money here. Those artists were unknown to me and delivered. Its great to have big names but from little things big things grow.
