In this hour special for Get Ready to ROCK! Radio Pete Feenstra previews some of the artists appearing at this year’s Upton Blues Festival, including Big Boy Bloater, Kyla Brox, Wily Bo Walker, Rainbreakers and Danny Bryant. For reviews/interviews of many of the festival artists, check out our album/gig reviews and Mixcloud page.
Artists such as Danny Bryant, Wille And The Bandits (pictured), Elles Bailey and Rainbreakers – all familiar to GRTR! readers and listeners – will perform at a free festival in July.
Upton Blues Festival has grown from a small event in 2002 based in a couple of pubs to a fully fledged festival with two main outside stages, an acoustic stage in the local church and eleven pub venues plus a boat venue.
Situated in the picturesque Worcestershire riverside town this free festival features over 150 free shows over four days. A camp site with full facilities is nearby.
Amongst the many artists appearing are Big Boy Bloater & The Limits, Troy Redfern, Wily Bo Walker and Kyla Brox. Click or tap poster image to enlarge.
