Three nights and four parties in amazing venues as well as a pre-party and after party is what we like to call value for money. Those of you who have been here before know that we put music first and will have outstanding live music and DJ's that will have you dancing until the early hours. This year we are also adding a series of lectures about blues music and history to go together with the parties.
