The 2015 BLUESFEST POSTER. Festival artwork by Jack Bergeron, poster design by MessageMakers.

On September 18-19, 2015, the 22nd annual BluesFest was held in the streets of Old Town, Lansing, surrounded by the best of the Capital City’s art galleries as well as unique retail stores and grand architecture.  Its 3 stages offered national, regional, and local acts to roughly 7,000 people from across Michigan and nearby states.

The 2016 festival will take place Friday-Saturday, September 16-17.  As an example of the calibre of experiences we will offer next year, this website contains information on the 2015 performers, vendors, and special activities such as the KidzBeat area, and River Boat rides.

Michigan BluesFest (former name Old Town BluesFest) continues to grow thanks to the contributions of its sponsors and volunteers.  Plan now to be a part of the 2016 festival — Support Old Town, Lansing, and live Blues!
