Blues fans from near and far can once again look forward to an attractive program with many highlights at Switzerland's largest open-air blues event:
"Summerblues Basel - s Glaibasler Bluesfescht" awaits with over 50 hours of top-class live blues for free, celebrated by over 30 bands on new eight stages and at the three smaller venues of "Blues uff der Gass".
"Blues uff der Gass" was launched in 2015 with great success:
Without much technology, renowned blues musicians and promising talents perform here in the style of street musicians in a small setting. Variety is also provided: within about five hours, four bands perform at each of these venues.
For the seventh time in a row, the final of the "Swiss Blues Challenge" will be held as part of Summerblues Basel. At the Volkshaus Basel, four bands will compete against each other in front of an expert jury for the title of Swiss Blues Champion. The winner of this prestigious competition - sponsored by "Summerblues Basel" - will represent Switzerland at the "European Blues Challenge 2023".Food and drink will be provided by more than 20 hospitable and creative catering partners with pubs, bars and stands at all venues and throughout the festival area.
In addition to the voluntary work of the organizing team, this unique event is made possible by the commitment of numerous sponsors, patrons and partners.
