Celebrating its 28th edition this year, the Tremblant International Blues Festival will take place over five days, from July 12 to 16.
More than 100 free outdoor shows will be presented on the various stages in the heart of the pedestrian village.
Choosing the Blues at Tremblant this summer will allow fans and visitors to discover new musical sounds.
It’s also a different kind of festival experience where the proximity of the artists, the wide variety of music genres and the unique atmosphere are combined in the heart of a natural environment.
Among the not-to-be-missed headliners that set the tone for this new colorful edition, the festival begins:
- Wednesday, July 12, starts with a powerful bluesman who will charm his crowd, Sugaray Rayford, who also just won the award for best Soul Blues Album at the 44th Blues Music Awards.
- The following day, Thursday, July 13, the very original Delgres, a Creole blues band, will touch people’s hearts with its voice, music and lyrics sung in Creole, English and French.
- Then, on Friday, July 14, the schedule is quite busy with the presence of Toronto’s talented bluesman, Harry Manx. Later, fans won’t want to miss the New Orleans-based blues and funk band Dumpstaphunk. Currently touring throughout the United States, this band is making a stop at Tremblant and promises a wild evening.
- On Saturday night, July 15, we’ll turn up the volume and dance to the rhythms of Memphis band Southern Avenue, where the voices of the two vocalist sisters, will give chills to the festivalgoers.
The list of artists for the 2023 edition continues with swing, funk and rhythm bands that will have everyone dancing and celebrating.
The Family Zone is back!
In addition to all the music offered during the day and the evening, many free activities and workshops are offered to families from Thursday to Sunday.
Craft workshops, face painting and a caricaturist for children add a little extra to entertain families.
