With the hours of excellent footage captured at the fest, what is the reason there are no official DVD's released?
Maybe copywrite complications? Maybe cost Vs reward factor.
A DVD of 25th anniversary (2014) is in the pipeline and I will be in line for that, but one would think it a profitable venture.

Not commercial quality footage.
Cost of mastering audio (and video).
Cost of artist clearing fees.
Distribution/marketing costs.
Limited audience for a DVD release (relative to cost of production).

Just thoughts - no actual confirmation of any of the above being the case, but I'd have thought there mist be some impediments for it to have not happened by now.

Don't need them.
There are plenty of good bluesfest clips on youtube.

artist clearance could be a big one.
