Be Part Of The Prestigious Durban Blues Festival This September

This year keeps getting better and better,music lovers are being spoiled in all ways possible. The Durban Blue Festival dates for this year have been confirmed. This annual event is set to take place on September 1st and 2nd. The show’s headliner is an international Blue Ambassador Charlie Love.

The Festival is exclusively about the music genre, The Blues but mixes a bit of a dance. If you looking to relax your mind and put your heart at ease then this festival is exactly what you need.

“When the festival was staged for the first time in 2005 at Wilson’s Wharf, the intention was to create an event, synonymous with Durban alone and to make Durban the Blues Capital of South Africa – hopefully, the continent of Africa eventually. The intention was and still is, to educate music lovers and to encourage their support of this easy listening style and we think that we have achieved this with a steady growth of fans and growing attendance every year,” says Themi Venturas, thefestival director.
