Chicago Blues Festival

Chicago Blues Festival 2024

A legendary Chicago event since 1984, the Chicago Blues Festival is the world’s largest free blues festival.

Each year, more than 500,000 blues fans gather in Chicago’s Millennium Park and venues across the city for multiple days of performances — all free and open to the public — featuring some of the genre’s most revered musicians, along with up-and-coming and local talent.

This year’s performances, part of Millennium Park’s milestone 20th anniversary season, will include living legend Buddy Guy, along with Shemekia Copeland, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Southern Avenue, and a Tribute to Jimmy Rogers.

The event is finished.
