For four days, not only will Veszprém be the European Capital of Culture, but also the capital of blues. 

The biggest blues festival in Hungary so far will feature world stars and the best-known artists of the Hungarian blues-roots community across the stages of Veszprém.


Body: Supported by the European Capital of Culture 2023 programme, the four-day festival will see the stages of Veszprém graced by performances from Sugar Blue – the harmonica player who made a platinum record with The Rolling Stones, Rick Estrin – the guitarist who reformed British blues tradition, Matt Schofield – a favourite of Hungarian audiences, as well as Big Daddy Wilson, and one of the most promising performers of the genre, Buffalo Nichols. Other local bands include Little G Weevil, The Black Circle Orchestra, Jambalaya, and Redbreast Wilson, with the promise of a long-awaited performance by the reunited Palermo Boogie Gang.
