JUNE 9-11, 2017
The Chicago Blues Festival remains the largest of the city’s music festivals; taking place over three days across five stages, more than 500,000 blues fans descend on Chicago to celebrate the Blues legends of the past, present and future.
Since its beginning in 1984, to celebrate Muddy Waters, the festival has been graced with performers including Bonnie Raitt, Ray Charles and B.B. King. Whether it’s Chuck Berry sharing the stage with Keith Richards or John Lee Hooker singing ‘Boogie Chillen’, if you’re in Chicago in mid-June the Blues Festival is not to be missed.
