27th – 29th AUGUST 2021
1 GREAT FESTIVAL
WE WON! THANK YOU!
We were nominated for a UKBlues Federation UK Blues Award in the ‘Blues Based Festival of the Year’ category (for our 2019 event), as were many other excellent UK-based blues festivals.
And we’re so thrilled to announce that we WON.
The win is testament to all the hard work, time and love given from the festival team; to the incredible artists and musicians who grace each of the stages; and mostly to YOU for taking the time to vote for us. Thank you so much. We hugely appreciate it.
It’s an honour to have won this prestigious award. And for the announcement to arrive at a time when the things are challenging for the music industry, makes the win all the more special.

As well as the festival receiving an award, many acts playing the festival during the summer of 2021 also received awards, including Dom Martin, Connor Selby, Kyla Brox, Matt Long and more.

Many thanks again and much love. Stay safe and look after each other.
