Augustibluus festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary! Since 1993 it has been the host for artists and bands from more than 30 different countries. Lineup has included some of the best local and foreign performers. For 20 years people not only from Estonia and Baltics, but also from Scandinavia, Russia and many other countries have visited the festival to experience exquisite performances. Thanks to the ever-improving programme, considerable interest from the public and many positive reviews Augustibluus has become a known name amongst the well-established list of bluesfestivals in Europe. Our crew's humorous promise has always been to convert Haapsalu to a musical paradise, just to please the visitors. We boldly promise to keep it so, more so on our jubilee.
This year's main performances take place on episcopal castle grounds of Haapsalu. Those two nights will bring together bands from Europe, Australia and of course from the birthplace of blues – the USA. The daily programme of our jubilee year consists of workshops, exhibitions and the traditional acoustic concerts in the Haapsalu's old train station. The Jim Beam Night Club will keep the jam sessions going till the early morning hours. The festival takes place on 6 different stages, in various cafes and even on the city streets.
