The Blues Festival will be featuring 2 bands each night interspersed with AV sent from our International Artists who could not join us this year.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

2020 has certainly been a challenge for most of us, no less the entertainment and eventing industry. Covid 19 shook us from every angle and the struggle to "keep things afloat" is no stranger! The Durban International Blues Festival 2020 team certainly have had to deal with these industry issues - but the warriors that they are, along with their ever loyal (main) sponsors, The Department of Arts and Culture believe: NEVER SAY DIE!
New strategies, new plans and a new way of doing things have been the inspiration behind this year's event which will take place 4-6 December and there is no better place to hold the event - with all Covid rules in governance - than at Roland Stansell's Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo, Durban.
The performances are live - but with a twist! Our local artists, Rorke Kemp, Sea Level (featuring Lance Goldberg), Bobby and the Dynamites, Smoke Train and The Reals who are the backing band for The Blues Summit will perform live, but since our international Blues friends couldn't come to Durban in person due to Covid restrictions, they have willingly agreed to participate in a video production to be screened at the show.
The line-up is formidable with some of our past performers supporting us wholeheartedly: Liz Mandeville (USA), Toronzo Cannon (USA), Fiona Boyes (Aus), Pat Savage (Canada), Charlie Love (USA), Donna Herula (USA) and Yamil Jacobo (Argentina).

Artist lineup:
Friday: Rorke Kemp and Sea Level
Saturday: Bobby and the Dynamites and Smoke Train
Sunday: The Blues Summit backed by The Reals
