The Mahindra Blues Festival is one of the finest Blues festivals and is being held on the 13th and 14th of February in the iconic Mehboob Studio in Mumbai. It’s going to be 2 days of iconic blues musicians and newfound talent playing soul-tripping and guitar-ripping tunes. It’s definitely one of the Festivals that you should attend this February.

The first edition happened in 2011 and since then this Blues Festival has been absolutely instrumental in bringing international Blues legends like Taj Mahal, and Walter Trout, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker Jr., among many more, down to Mumbai. This helped in fuelling a growing interest in Blues music throughout India. Mahindra Blues Festival has also become an excellent platform for Blues bands from India to take up the stage with some of the best Blues musicians worldwide. This festival was also nominated for the ‘Keeping the Blues Alive’ award in 2014, which is organized by the The Blues Foundation of America.

This year, MBF returns for the sixth time, with a legendary line-up featuring artists like King King, Joss Stone, Malina Moye, Keb’Mo’, and The Heritage Blues Orchestra. Apart from these international names, there will also be home-grown talent like the band Soulmate along with the winners of The Mahindra Blues Band Hunt of this year.
