Wille And The Bandits - Giants of Rock, Minehead, January 2017

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.
