Upwards of 20,000 music lovers are expected

in Colne this summer… to enjoy us, The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival 2018​

Our beautiful town is an ideal location for an event of this kind, with one long ‘main’ street, which is closed to traffic during the Saturday and Sunday of the event. The main street will host a festival market, on-street entertainment, official busker gazebos, incredible food stalls, real ale bars and more.

Each music venue is within easy reach of the main street, making this event not only Europe’s best contemporary blues festival, but also a one-of-a-kind and much-loved festival for people of the local area.

Headliners this year include King King​ (winners of both Band of the Year and Album of the Year at the recent UK Blues Awards), My Baby, Laurence Jones​, Kyla Brox​, Simon McBride​ and Connie Lush.

See the A-Z artist page of our site for the full band listings.
