More about the Festival

Overview

Blues is arguably the most important form of the modern art alive today. It gave birth to Rock n Roll, Country & Western, Pop, Funk and even R&B (to name but a few). It is the most natural foundation of music and those wanting to learn an instrument are most often steered towards classic Blues. It is truly multi-cultural and multi-generational, and the ideal match for both the Knysna environment and its mix of cultures.

The Venue

Situated alongside the Knysna Lagoon, Mitchells Knysna Brewery is a fantastic venue, no matter the weather. With a dedicated stage area, seating for up to 320 and a fully-serviced kitchen delivering great meals the day is sure to be enjoyed by all. Of course the brewery’s fine craft beer will be available too, as well as a full hard-tack-and-mixer bar!
