This is the 20th Anniversary of the Forth Valley Blues Festival Inc., and will be bigger and better than ever, with a memorabilia exhibition and lots more.

Tasmania’s premier blues event the Forth Valley Blues Festival is back bigger & better than ever this year on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th 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 $30 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!

We currently have 2 bands confimed 1920 and Fabulous Terrazzo Bros ( Tasmanian, Hobart based band)  have been confirmed. Further details will be provided at a later date.

$30 for Friday night  ( 5 bands will be performing).

$70 for tickets purchased prior to 31 December 2016: this ticket will be for entry to both Friday Night & Saturday to the Festival.

$90 for tickets purchased AFTER 01 January 2017 (inclusive); this ticket will be for entry to both Friday Night & Saturday to the Festival.

Tickets sales will commence shortly.
