The 2015 Forth Valley Blues Festival is celebrating its 18th birthday in style on March 21st with a exciting new look and direction.

The festival’s headline acts will be Russell Morris who is riding a wave of popularity and with chart topping albums, “Sharkmouth” and “Van Dieman’s Land”  and legendary American singer-songwriter Tony Joe White. There will be a full 12 hour program of music featuring local and national artists.

Music has always been the major focus of the festival but next year’s event will expand to incorporate local food and wine. Being located in the heart of the food bowl of the North West Coast it is a great opportunity for local businesses and producers to showcase their wares. The Forth Valley Blues Festival will be a major event of the 2015, ‘Devonport Food and Wine Festival.’ The Festival is set in the beautiful location of the Forth Valley. People travel from across the state to attend the festival which has a sell-out capacity of 3000 people. We will also be aiming to attract interstate visitors as well.


Would you like to play at the 2015 Forth Valley Blues Festival on the same bill as Tony Joe White and Russell Morris "The Real Thing" and be the Tasmanian Blues Act of the Year?

The playoffs start at the Forth Pub this Sunday, the 1st of February with another round at Forth on Sunday the 8th of February. We are finalising details for a round of playoffs in Launceston and Hobart with the finals to be held at Forth on Sunday the 22nd with an act from each region. One finalist will get a gig at the festival proper and the other two will play Friday night before the festival.
