We are so pleased to welcome Michigan BluesFest back to the streets of Old Town, Lansing.

We have a terrific line-up of artists who are as excited to get back in front of an audience as we are to hear them.

 

There will be something for everyone—even the kids!

 

Enjoy a weekend of energy, excitement, music and coming together again as a community, where we can reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

MAKE AN IMPACT!

VENUES

There will be four venues this year: the South and North Turner Street Stages, the River Stage (Premier seats) and the UrbanBeat Afterglow Stage. Turner Street and River Stages are open-air. The Afterglow Stage is indoors at UrbanBeat.

SPECIAL SONG PREMIERES

As an added benefit, each artist has agreed to premiere a song, composition or arrangement that they’ve never performed publicly before.

ENJOY THE SOCIAL DISTRICT  

Old Town’s new designation as a Social District means festival goers can buy and consume and walk on the streets with appropriately labeled alcoholic beverages from sponsor UrbanBeat and other bars and restaurants, while seeing all that BluesFest has to offer.

VENDORS

2023 vendor submissions now being accepted.

T-SHIRTS & POSTERS

We’re excited to announce that our 2023BluesFest t-shirts will be on sale Friday and Saturday at the festival for only $15 - so get one for yourself or grab one for a friend! Vintage T-shirts & Posters also available.

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

Volunteering is a great way to go behind the scenes, develop new skills, meet new people, help the community and have fun!
