Welcome to the Bayfront Blues Festival, one of the largest annual outdoor music events in the upper Midwest. Each year nearly 20,000 fans are treated to more than thirty different acts on two stages at one of the region’s most beautiful open-air venues….. Duluth’s Bayfront Festival Park.


For over a quarter century the Bayfront Blues Festival has been a world leader showcasing a who’s who in the blues and blues/rock music genre. From Buddy Guy to Jonny Lang, Little Richard to Delbert McClinton, Robert Cray to Wilson Picket and Blues Traveler to Solomon Burke, nearly 500 artists in all have graced our famous stages.


Please take a moment to tour our website and discover some great reasons for including us in your summer get-away plans.


We hope to see you this August!
