What dates is the 2018 Forth blues Festival on??? ...

This unique and memory filled mushroom hat was lost at the Festival. We would love to have it back, if you know where it is please get in touch. ...



This is the 20th 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 2017 is 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!

The line-up consists of Ian Moss, Fingers Mitchell Cullen, Harper & the Midwest Kind (USA), 19twenty, Muddy Puddles, Grooveyard Hammond Combo, Pete Cornelious & the Devilles, Claire Anne Taylor, Jason Delphin, Kitty Martini & the Tom Collins trio, The Fabulous Terrazzo Brothers, Avargo Groove,  the Talent Quest Winner, and Talent Quest runner-up.

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

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

Tickets can be purchased from or at the Forth Hotel. Child 12 years and under NO CHARGE. *** BUT MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT  who holds a FVBF 2017 ticket. 13 to 17  are 1/2 the price of  the adult ticket price, that applies.
