This is the 21st Anniversary of the Forth Valley Blues Festival Inc. It will be BIGGER & BETTER than ever, with a memorabilia exhibition and lots more.

Tasmania’s premier blues event the Forth Valley Blues Festival 2018 is on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th of March. That’s right – FRIDAY NIGHT! This year we have again decided to expand the Festival and move the Friday night from the Bridge Hotel – Forth to the festival site because this event had simply outgrown the pub. With this move we have expanded the Friday night line-up to FIVE bands. As a special offer this year the Friday night will be FREE and included with your festival ticket price ….or $35 for the Friday night only. So with the great music from 10 bands on 2 stages on Saturday and the 5 bands on Friday night – that’s 15 bands for $70. Now that is great value!

The line-up consists of Mark Seymour & The Undertow, Rob Tognoni, Lachy Doley Group, 19twenty, Hussy Hicks, Juzzie Smith, The Sheyana Band, Hussy Hicks, Juzzie Smith and Kyle Lionhart + more to be released.
